Extreme emotions and AMN

My emotions have become very extreme. I get very angry at dropping something for example or just an itchy nose. I then get tearful over nothing. I went to the Drs and he prescribed an anxiety type drug which is amazing . I am so relaxed now and not getting emotional or angry. Is only a mild dose of sertraline. Has been fab. Just passing this on😀

I have been taking this as well since my son and myself have been diagnosed. Does help.


Hi Bozzer

I’m sure you know this but just in case. Have you checked your Cortisol levels? (addison's disease)

Since cortisol is a stress hormone, the body handle stress very badly if its low and you get the symptoms you describe. I have it myself and I need to take hydrocortisone every day and it really helps me to keep my emotions in place.
