Hi, I’ve been reading posts on here for a good while and can see what a great resource it is. My 10 year old son has had a very bad 2.5 years with asthma. He is an allergic kid (bad genes) IgE levels sky high and allergies diagnosed by blood tests to dust, various pollens, moulds. Also food allergies-nuts, prawns, wheat, legumes though unsure if all of these actually cause symptoms but they are excluded from diet. Consultant have thrown loads of medicines at him without much luck until started Xolair in December which is going really well. We’d be more grateful if his adrenal glands hadn’t been messed up in the process (diagnosed adrenal insufficiency and on hydrocortisone) after Seretide at increasing unlicensed doses, numerous courses of prednisolone, two injections of triamcinolone steroid one of which has caused a 3cm indentation in his skin! Too much to say in one post but I am looking for help and advice with adrenal symptoms. He apparently doesn’t fit usual profile as stomach ache is main one and Consultant said this is not a symptom and must be some other cause. But Gastroenterology not interested and discharged him with vague and useless IBS diagnosis no investigations only ruling out colitis and coeliac from poo. He also gets headache, dizziness, feeling cold and exhaustion at its worst. Is it unusual to get adrenal insufficiency...he’s only a child 😢? Are his symptoms that unusual? How and when Will it get better. Feel we need second opinion but not sure who/where. Also having seen the way the steroid ‘dissolved’ fat in his skin worried about what else it’s done to him...eyes, bones, etc. Steroids are no longer our friend!!!
