Any idea of proper dosing on helping w Addisons. I do not want the doctor to give me too much steroids and then that create another problem. I am 99% sure I have addisons (possible severe adrenal fatigue)
My 24 hour saliva test showed these results
This is not much cortisol output at all. When the doctor showed me the graph it was basically a flat line and was I. The dangerous zone basically.
I need help however I'm being faced w one doctor saying as we age we all get tired. I'm waking up tired. I could sleep 24 hours however some nights I have insomnia. At this point I just feel weak. I have not left my bedroom in over 4 days. I'm sick and becoming more sick. Why am I being faced with people that say you just have to push through life. My body is not producing cortisol and on top of that I have hashimatos. Being managed w 300 grains of Nature Throid
If anyone has suggestions I'm willing to listen and learn.
I have basically zero estrogen and testosterone. I'm in menopause. So I'm a hormonal mess. Does anyone think I need an MRI to look at adrenals or pituitary gland to figure out the actual cause of why I feel so so bad. My lower back hurts like on each side, my right shoulder is weak. Almost like there is something wrong w rotary cuff but now I believe it's just muscle weakness.
Any thoughts would be appreciated
