Hi, Can someone help me please? I have been suffering from adrenal stress for years and have seen Dr Peatfield on and off as symptoms arise. I am need of help now but Dr Peatfield is ill himself. About 4 weeks ago I contacted the flu which has made me very ill and I am still suffering. It has caused my tinnitus to go through the roof and as a result I am suffering from very bad insomnia even though I take temazepam which I have taken for years as insomnia has been a problem since childhood! On my last adrenal saliva test I had very low dhea and normal cortisol on the first and last sample and too high on the second and third samples. Dr Peatfield advised me to keep on supporting the adrenals which I do with 25mgs of hydrocortisone per day but he didnt advise anything for the very low dhea. Can anyone tell me if I need more hydrocortisone as the flu and anxiety are putting a strain on my adrenals? I am beside myself as I dont know who to turn to or what to do, I am so tired and weak and losing weight! Please any advice would be great. Many thanks, Hebbyh.
