I have recently been diagnosed with adrenal insufficiency, I have a 100mg emergency hydrocortisone injection on me and a blue steroid card as I have to take prednisolone each day. In an emergency i have to inject myself with the hydrocortisone and go to A+E or ring 999 for an ambulance and state "Addisons emergency". My problem was caused by too much prednisolone for too long combating constant re-infections due to bronchiectasis. I would like to hear from someone in the same state to tell me what their daily steroid dose is. I am sure by the way I feel that my dose is too low. I am 66 years old and feel low mood and pain everyday, I think an increase to my daily steroids would help me. Anyone help me ?
