... I have been able to have to occasional drink. If I have a glass of wine with dinner or a mixed drink, I do fine. It does hit me much faster than it used to - not sure if that's just age or what. The strange thing. The few times a year I go out and drink (maybe 1 or 2 times), I never have a hang over. Never. I don't even feel bad the next day. I never do so unless I know I... (1 replies)

... Gertie, I had a lot of trouble with nausea for a long time. I woke up every morning feeling nauseous. I now take a delayed release prednisone that releases at 4:00 in the morning - same concept as waking up early to take meds and going back to sleep. I feel much better now in the morning.

... CORTISOL. Low cortisol is a major clue. All you need now is to determine if it is primary or secondary adrenal failure. Primary adrenal failure means that your adrenals are defective. Secondary adrenal failure means that your pituitary in not sending ACTH, which drives the adrenals to make cortisol. Low cortisol is best detected with a "24-Hour Urinary Free Cortisol" test. ...

... Hi Eagle- Yes- That is what I meant. If you start taking cortisone artificially (ie- tablets, injections) then your body can interpret that it doesn't need to produce any on its own. THEN- if you suddenly stop taking the meds, your body can't recover fast enough. Since you need cortisol to survive- it can be a quick descent. I don't believe it would happen after just...

... GhostH and others- are you on hydrocortisone, or prednisone, and/or florinef? I wonder if the drug or dosage may make a difference with this spacey-head symptom; I have gotten a degree of improvement from low-dose hydrocortisone, but it's only been a few short weeks I have been on it and I wonder if the symptom will ever completely resolve or not. -K (15 replies)
