Welcome to MedHelp. Adrenal insufficency, has a long, long list of symptoms, as the adrenals control so many aspects of life. Please read through all the entries---questions and answers--to get a feel for the problems that result from disease or insufficiency of the adrenal glands. Jot down aspects of your own situation that correspond to those you're reading about, then go to the thyroid questions and answers, as the two glands are closely related. Stress and illness can definitely deplete the adrenals, but there are also other causes. Weakness and low blood pressure are definitely symptoms of adrenal insufficiency, but they are also symptoms of many illnesses. Type your symptoms and then search. Do the same with thyroid, adrenal glands, hypoglycemia, and the words that describe your GI problems. Although some people have almost every symptom of a problem, many do not. After becoming better acquainted with these topics, listen to what your body is telling you, and pick a medical specialty doctor who can diagnose your problem. When you search the terms I've suggested on the Internet, you'll find so many references you'll stay busy for days! Get back to us when you find out more. Good luck!
