Although I feel some improvements I also feel in the last 2 weeks that I have hit a roadblock.
Under Dr. P's guidance, for having quite serious adrenal fatigue, I have escalated to 6 Max Strength Adrenal support tablets per day. I reached this level in July; within about 2 weeks of being on this dose (accompanied by x6 Nature Thyroid tablets too), I also developed really bad back problems - which having researched and found to be adrenal fatigue-related, has helped to down-played my worries about not having a very good MRI scan result...
However, gradually in the last two weeks I have become: very wobbly, dizzy, feeling constantly nauseous, difficulty focusing (though I have had to have my glasses upgraded and I am not sure the lenses suit me - possibly a red-herring?!)..occasional racing pulse rate, total loss of memory, quite concerningly so... and I am constantly thirsty, preferably for cold drink. My mouth and lips also seem to be very dry? I am also having a great deal of difficulty digesting? It feels as though in the morning my stomach is still heavy with the previous night's meal? And I am getting a great deal of heartburn?
I have managed to persuade the powers that be at the surgery to organise full panel of blood tests- which happened yesterday. My results will come through hopefully by Friday.
Currently and particularly at this period in time, I am under a very considerable amount of stress which sadly I cannot avoid, which obviously I know will not help my situation.
Obviously I have to wait to see what the blood test results come through as, but seeing as adrenal fatigue is considered to be right up there with Arthurian legend as far as our British GP's are concerned, I was wondering if anybody else treated by Dr P for quite bad adrenal fatigue (my last adrenal saliva test came back as a flat line to dr. P's horror), does anybody take beyond 6 NAX tablets per day?
Is it possible to take more than 6?
The only other piece of information I have to add is that once my present period is over, I shall be starting on the natural plant extract HRT, 'Serenity' that Dr P recommends. I know that the menstruation places an extra stress on the adrenal glands, so at the moment everything seems to be hitting me at once. Obviously this last pearl of wisdom will not affect the lads amongst our fraternity!
I would like to be 'thinking ahead' though, and know if it is indeed possible to take more than 6 NAX tablets a day as I have to try and get my head around the fact that 'surely, surely...I must start to improve soon!' I need to badly- as we all wish to.
