hello to all,
I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia a few years back after having had muscle aches, joint pain, tingling, extreme fatigue for years. My hormones had never been checked until recently. My primary doctor said that all my hormones were good but my DHEA, it was extremely low. She said my adrenal glands were not functioning properly and has ordered a MRI/CT scan and has referred me to an endocrinologist. I also have some hyperpigmentation that she was concerned with.
She also mentioned Addison's Disease.
What's the difference between Adrenal Insufficiency and Addison's Disease?
