Hello everyone. I've been reading from alternative doctors that underneath CFS and ADD is an adrenal problem. Has anyone here with either condition treated their adrenals, and if so, what was the outcome, how do you feel and in what ways do you feel better if you do? Also, what exactly was your adrenal treatment?
My doctors thought that my adrenal glands were failing me at one time. I went to see an Endocrinologist and had and ACTH Stim test. It came back normal.
I went to see a holistic doctor and he performed an adrenal saliva test on me- one you offer samples throughout the day, so they can check your levels throughout the day (those are never covered by insurance). That test came back abnormal, I was diagnosed with Adrenal Fatigue and was prescribed medication through a compound pharmacy. At the time I just couldn't afford all of the medications I was on, so I opted out of it. I just have a feeling that anyone who is under stress and drinks too much coffee would have Adrenal Fatigue, but that's just my opinion.
What are your symptoms and what have you been diagnosed with?
I have ADD or ADHD, Dyslexia, and Cerebellar-Vistibular Dysfunction.
A mental condition that's in remission for months so far.
Doctors have suggested CFS a few times.
I had bad cortisol level test when a teen and a hair analysis showed adrenal problems.
I'm still wondering about my thyroid.
Plus my stamina is pretty poor. I can't run or jog steadily except in-place, I just don't have the strength to do it. Even biking up an incline is killer. And I'm only 27 and it's been like this for years.
