  • Hi Adam_pekk. If you don't mind telling me, what is addison disease, and the systoms ?

  • Fatigue, sickness, abdominal pain, diarrhea, its something to do with the tops of your kidneys and hormones or something

  • Adam, this sounds like anxiety for sure. Trust me, I have experience with this. And stop googling your symptoms; internet is bad like that. Whenever I check my symptoms if I say "elbow pain" it suggests elbow cancer. No, just joking. But seriously, internet will give you scary results. Don't do it.

    Also, these are all anxiety symptoms. Something tells me that you're a newbie in anxiety. Other more inexplicable pains and weird symptoms will come and you'll panic over them because they will sound like it's something serious, but docs won't find the problem - you'll see how much money you'll end up spending on docs and medicine when you're an anxiety sufferer. I hope you'll be wiser than I was and stop spending when the first results come back negative. But whatever the doctor tells you, when you have anxiety you'll always think it's something bad but they just don't see it. See my other post about "canceratitis".

  • One of the things to do when dealing with a long-term health problem is not to automatically blame everything that happens on your condition. People with anxiety will have other health issues throughout their lives that it might not be wise to put down to anxiety and ignore.
