I am 27 and I have Aspergers. I have had medical issues all of my life it seems. I have had to have a surgery of some type or another every year since 2007 and my tonsils/adnoids were removed in 1988 (age 2)
I've been diagnosed with ovarian cysts, acid reflux, IBS, ITP, fibromyalgia (?), POTS (2007), my gallbladder was removed due to an unknown cause of disease- it simply stopped working and no CT MRI or ultrasound showed that- only the HIDA Scan. Appendix was removed with ovarian cyst as well. Deviated septum (85-90% deviation) was fixed, abnormal moles removed, carcinoma in situ of cervix, and now it seems that the "POTS" symptoms that had vanished after months of Thermotab treatment are back and they are back in full swing - very suddenly started up agan -
Adrenal insuf is listed as a diagnosis but not entirely sure why - 21 Hydroxylase Antibody was mildly positive, aldosterone is abnormal, Cortisol stim test showed 42 at 1 hr mark but it was done at noon time and no baseline was drawn. DHEA-Sulfate high, Free Testosterone is high (periods are normal)
Does anyone know if cortisol and ASD are truly connected? I only read one article about it.
