Hcg- side effects

Has anyone experienced any bad side effects from the hcg shots?  I am administering them myself and just want to know what to look out for.

I personally have not experienced any negative side affects.  Only good things (swelling in joints went down, scratchy throat causing me to cough constantly went away).

The only negative side affect I've read from the blogs are headaches for the first couple of days. and only 2 people mentioned headaches.

Although you are entitled to your opinion, I would appreciate it if you would respond in a more positive way.  I have no problem with the fact that you disagree with the use of hcg, but why not communicate it to others in a kind manner.  No one will ever listen to what you have to say if you always condescending in your tone.  Furthermore, please respect the fact that we have the right to utilize our own means necessary to lose weight.

I read in your post that you have problems with your adrenals.  I currently am being tested for a suspected adrenal problem, which I attribute to my exercise bulimia and overconsumption of ephedra, caffiene, etc.  Have you been diagnosed with an adrenal problem and if so, what did you do about it?  Any information would be appreciated.  Thanks.

HI..ive taken EHPEDRA for over 10 years..and still have it..and take it..just not as much.. to test your adrenals the right way..you need an AM/PM coritsol test.. make sure you tell your dr. dont let him short change you adrenal probs are more common in women very..to help..stop all stimulants..even coffe...you can buy some supplements..lto help..I have adrenal support from NATRA-BIO or go to bodybuilding.com ..go to store..type in adrenals..heres a good product..http://www.bodybuilding.com/store/palo/reset.html ...in time adrenals will bounce back any  ? just ask

Thank you for the information.  I have completed a 24 hour urine collection for cortisol after taking dexamethasone(don't know if this is the correct spelling).  I was wondering if your doctor ever prescribed a medication for you.

I currently have stopped taking all caffeine/ephedra supplements.  The reason for the suspected adrenal gland problem was a suddent weight gain which started last summer.  I gained 30 pounds in 2 months with no change in diet or exercise.  At first, my thyroid was checked and everything was ok, which led them to suspect my adrenals because a urine test showed extremely high cortisol levels.

I have never felt so tired in all of my life and have never been able to not lose weight.  This has been an extremely frustrating year, so I am hoping if my adrenals are corrected, I can start feeling like myself again.  Have you also experienced extreme exhaustion?

Thanks in advance.

tired is not the word..at this time im not on any RX meds...the #1 mistake DR'S
make with tyroid is the testing.. make sure you had a full thyroid panel test..
free T3 free T4 and TSH test...reports are 95% of doctors do not test righ.t.and tell most people there thyroid is 'ok' but 'ok' is not good enough for most people...from my studies...cortizone inections or pill form seem to help greatly..its only like 10-25mg's if you want mor einfo do a search on
ADRENAL BURN OUT,ADRENAL FATIGUE...any  ?'s just ask..let me know how you make out..
