Sorry if this question sounds strange, but I have had the most unusual experience in the past few days, and I wonder if it could be adrenaline-related:
A few days ago, I started taking Nutri Advanced Adrenal Extra, or NAX as it is often referred to, which some UK patients have had recommended to them by their doctor (cannot remember if it was Peatfield or Skinner).
I decided to try it, as I hope to be able to wean off Medrol eventually (I've been on it for almost four years, after being diagnosed with adrenal fatigue based on blood and 24 h urine; my doctor was trained by T. Hertoghe), and so many users sing its praises that I decided it was worth a try.
I don't find Medrol as effective as I once did, but I don't want to follow my doctor's advice and raise it to 5 or 6 grains daily; instead, I'd like to wean off it completely one day.
First of all, let me say that NAX is by far the most effective supplement I have ever tried. It reminds me of Thyrogold by Dr. Lowe that I tried a few years ago; I remember feeling like I had been kicked by a horse, but in a good way (sorry, I know it sounds strange, but I hope you get the picture). I had lots of energy, I felt warmer than I had in a long time (no more cold hands and feet), I had no problems waking up in the morning, after feeling sluggish in the morning for a long time (I also take 5 grains of Erfa Thyroid daily). It even felt like Erfa was working better. I have been taking two capsules of NAX daily; one with breakfast, and the other one with lunch, never after 1 pm as indicated on the bottle.
However, in the past couple of days, I have had some strange experiences. At first, I thought I had fallen asleep in front of the television and had nightmares, but today, it was clear to me that I was awake, and that I was experiencing what can only be described as an anxiety attack (I have never had those before, but I have read about them). Afterwards, I felt uncomfortable being alone at home, and wanted to be surrounded by people...for no apparent reason. Only now is this feeling of unease beginning to subside.
I don't take any medication that could cause anxiety attacks, and I have been on both Erfa and Medrol for almost four years now. The only thing that has changed in recent days is the addition of NAX.
So, I was wondering...it is at all possible that I have been getting too much adrenaline, and that this in turn causes anxiety attacks (for lack of a better word)...???
