OK. If you had the ACTH stim and it was normal but you felt BETTER that day, it means your adrenals still work when stimulated, but you might have a fair degree of adrenal fatigue. Sure sounds like it with that list of symptoms as they are all sypmtoms of adrenal fatigue. I was so underweight for a few years before being diagnosed with adrenal insufficiency, and now i have gained 13kg (28lb) since starting cortisone back in october last year. I dont mind because i just look much more normal now instead of being extremely drawn and underweight. I havent even changed my diet the weight just came on once starting the drugs.

If you felt good for the day of the ACTH stim, it's because it stimulated your glands to make more cortisol (the main reason for the test) hence feeling good. You should definitely try licorice root extract - best in a tincture form, or you can get powder or capsules. I'd start with 300mg a day, and you can raise it gradually if no side effects etc. Also get some PABA and Pantethine. With those three if it is adrenal fatigue, you should absolutely feel better within days, and it should help the hypoglycemia etc. Also licorice root heals ulcers better than almost anything, so that's another good reason to take it.

I also have alot of those symptoms, but many have improved on the cortisone. Others haven't changed much. I still dont have energy etc, but the most severe symptoms of awful shakiness, cold intolerance, fried nerves, hypoglycemia etc have been helped alot by it.

A great book to get is "Adrenal Fatigue, 21st Century Stress Syndrome" by Dr Wilson. Excellent advice in there to try, praised by many.
