Hi this is my first post - I have been learning a lot from this site and wonder if anyone can advise me what to do next!
The more I read the more I know something else is wrong with me - I've seen allergists, rhematologists and gastroenterologists and was surprised to find most of my symptoms are in the NHS choices description of Addison's so I asked for Endo ref.( not seen one for 22yrs) I was found to be VitD deficient 27.9 mmo/L and gp has prescribed re this. My Syncathen test result 09.50 337 and at 10.20 684 mmol/L reported as totally normal, not being seen again.
But these are my problems -
Chronic exhaustion, muscle weakness - x6 gynae surgery hysterectomy due to periods alternate weeks with crash team called out to one op as heart stopped (no more GA), lab lost one of the blood samples to establish why this happened so never found out. more recently surgeon telling me to find out why my muscles are so weak. Approx 1 or 2 days a month often when stressed - I feel flu like, have hypoglycemic type symptoms, feel sick weak cold/clammy then vomit every 30 mins approx for 12 hours plus going really hot and cold afterwards, really weak and dehydrated as I cannot even sip water without vomiting again, it isn't much fun being me this has gone on for years. More recently I am urinating frequently and thirsty and craving salty things. Family history of Thyroid problems and two male relatives with hormone probs but now deceased so cannot establish what they were. I am also left handed have an auto immune disease and have those white skin legions 3 things I have found are common in adrenal problems.
So now I wonder if this is more to do with my adrenals than dumping syndrome - I have not had my ACTH tested when the syncathen test was done. If anyone has any ideas I would love to hear from you.
