Is this a record?
Until the 3rd episode in early July I didn't actually realise what was happening. I have always been wiped out with a 'flu / bug' for a couple days about once a year but after 3 times I did some research. I found this link to these symptoms.
Warning signs include:
chills or fever
A decent list, I ticked everyone!
I tried to move my appointment with the endocrinologist forward from November but the best I could do was mid September. A bit too late, I was laid low again 1st of September. I've always tested OK in the past. Not sure what's gone wrong this year?
When illness strikes, it's a chronic shortage of cortisol, I double my hydrocortisone dose, 20 to 40 on a morning, 10 to 20 on an afternoon. However, as it usually presents during the night it's a bit late to fight off the worst. I ended up in hospital overnight this time, my worst incident and my good lady was worried.
Obviously my Addison's disease is linked to AMN. So I was wondering if anyone else is suffering in silence?
