I REALLY need to re-write this! I'm a 59-year-old woman. Intelligent... can't get out of my own way. Saliva tested... morning cortisol is 3. Just plain old long term stress. Endocrinologist just did extensive tests and the only thing he found is adrenal exhaustion. I

Thank you, Cloud, I am blessed.*** It's finally become impossible to deny that I have Asperger's. I didn't want to believe it, but the more I learn the more obvious it is.

Thanks once again for posting up your tests on your adrenal. I think this is a really positive answer and I too felt that the body chills I've been experiencing has something to do with the disfunction of the adrenal gland. I will seek out answers from my general practioner.
Just to let you know that I've had body chills for nearly seven years and I've told numerous doctors about it. . . .all shrug their shoulders about it. Just recently, I visited my neurologist because of my constant migraines along with seizures. He speculates that while I go into a seizure and/or migraine, that my body is secreting too much adrenaline. The body chills could indeed be too much adrenaline flowing throughout my body. You're the first post that I've read that makes sense to me. I will investigate further with my general practioner. Thanks for posting and pointing us in the direction of the adrenal gland.
