Vexna Posted July 11, 2017 Share Posted July 11, 2017 Hi there all of you nice people on here! I have a HUGE problem. I think I suffer from Adrenal fatigue but am not sure. I need your help with this so I thought I'd give a symptoms list and a background explanation. I've been sick with this since birth, my mother said I was the same way in the womb; sleeping so much she several times thought I was deceaced. I am now 40 and still sick. Doctors have done all sorts of tests and they all came back normal, the only low tests was cortisol which were 138nml of 550nml (normal). Symptoms: *EXTREME fatigue, I can sleep for months and then up to 22 hours a day. *Hard time falling asleep and waking up every 3-5 hours like the body is in stress *Noise sensitive *Fainting spells, never really fainted but if I stand for more than 10 minutes, I start seeing black spots. *Depression *Anxiety *Candida *Lose Nails on my toes *Lose hair, my hair is really thin because of how much hair I lose *Hormonal problems, my period goes on and off during the week. *PMDD *Concentration and memory problems *Grave's disease but that's treated and stabil. *Too much mucus in nose and throat *Daily diarrheas and since 4 months it's been yellow I've read about just any damned disease out there and none makes sense except Adrenal fatigue. A friend thought it was this and I read about it and BAM! It fit! So I started a natural cure for this (adrenal extracts, ashwagandha, licorice root, vitamin c and such) and 6 months into it all the symptoms were gone! Even the blueish colour by the inside of my eyes went away and I felt GREAT! I woke up at 8 am and was full of energy, could think clearly, went to sleep and slept all night without waking up every three to five hours, I was energetic all day, had NO concentration or memory problems, had no excess mucus, no depression, no anxiety, overall I felt like a million bucks! Unfortunally, my doc called and had the same suspicion: my adrenals. So she told me she wanted to do an ACTH test and that I had to quit the treatment in order for it not to mess with the testresults. I did that and after a week, all my symtoms were back and this time even worse than before! I was completely destroyed with anxiety, to the point where I committed myself cause I just couldn't stand it. (We're talking 24/7 panic that didn't decrease. Couldn't sleep, eat or live.) The test came back normal and I started the adrenal treatment again but it has now been 2,5 years into it and no change. I know I probably sound like the biggest hypochondriac ever but I was WELL! For three whole weeks I functioned like a completely normal person and so now I know what it's like being healthy! And I didn't even believe the treatment would do anything but it cured me of whatever the hell this is! So please P L E A S E, if anyone recognizes this, can you explain it to me? I think it's obvious Adrenal fatigue but the doctor means there is no such thing and noone else Believes me either. Except for my psychiatrist I got to for the anxiety and depression. He believes that it is the adrenal glands and says the Medical care today has such low knowledge of this if it's not Addisons that they'll never see this but if I know this to be it, then it is. But he doesn't know anything about this and an adrenal fatigue doctor doesn't exist as far as I've seen, in Sweden? (Oh yeah, I've looked, all I find are natural doctors who claim they know A.F but I can tell from talking to them, they don't. I in pure desperation gave one a chance but she gained money and it lead to no improvement. Felt kinda ripped off, actually. The last four months I have had yellow, loose poop and so my friends reacted since I'm always having stromach problems. But I've had this for 20 years so I thought it was normal. However after having looked up a doc about it, he told me it's not normal and is taking tests on it. He's checked for parasites, some kind of enzymes and is having a gasto and endoscopy done. Could this be gluten intolerans that have lead to adrenal fatigue? Cause in that case it's solvable, right?? P L E A S E help me, I So wanna be well and start working and LIVING! I'm now on disability since the age of thirty and I shouldn't be living like this at my age, so come on and help me, would you? Link to comment
