Hi everyone, I have an appointment this afternoon with my GP.
My latest Adrenal Stress Profile, on the lab report said adrenal exhaustion. My DHEA has also dropped since last year, it was flagged as low in the afternoon.
Do you think my GP will actually do anything to help?
I have rotten symptoms including fainting, extreme heat intolerance, excessive sweating, depression, very dry skin, swollen ankles all the time, as well as all the shaking and feeling sick most of the time.
If she decides to give me HC what is the likely dose?. She told me it was a might last time I saw her. Waking cortisol is lower than last time 3.1 (12-22). My nighttime cortisol has gone up for some reason to 3.6 (1.0-3.0) my insomnia is terrible, I'm sure that's linked.
The weakness has been so bad just short walks have left me breathless and exhausted, I have pain in my feet and legs now since 2005. I've read this can be a connection, so can diarrhoea which I have had for years.
What do you all think? Xx
