Hi, I searched the forum for addisons and it guided me to this Thyroid forum, so I hope it's ok to post here.
On monday my GP phoned to say my blood tests had come back abnormal and she said I have Addison's Disease.
For a quick bit of background in November 2016 I became very ill with suspected Glandular Fever, I had the blood tests done and the mono test came back positive. I was very ill from November through to February. However since then I have had bad fatigue, so have been off work and returning to my GP a lot. Anyway I'm now at the point of being told I have Addinsons and tomorrow I will be having a synacthen test tomorrow morning.
At the moment I feel absolutely terrified and i feel my world is over. I feel shocked, morbid, terrified, anxious and really tearful and confused. I'm the sort of person that is squeamish and I pass out at a blood test, so I feel all of this is too much to take.
I was just wondering if anyone has Addison's and how do they feel? Also has anyone had a GP say they have Addinson's but have the Synacthen test come back negative?
Thank you. x
