I had a test to check if my adrenals were working. It just took half an hour.
Few days later I had a telephone call to say they needed to see me and my husband. My adrenal levels were very low.
It was a daunting hour while we were both instructed how to cope with an adrenal failure episode.
I came away with 5 needles, 5 phials of hydrocortisone and 5 syringes. And a prescription for more if needed !!
I was quite shocked to go from hoping I could start reducing to having to double up if unwell and injecting myself if really unwell and then I have to dial 999 for an ambulance.
I sorted out my emergency kit. I have to carry it at all times. I then decided to get on with my life . Happy days 😳😳
