I found a pretty good article from a Naturopathic Doctor in Oregon.

Man... I hope that's what I have. The symptoms sound identical, but again that's the problem.. so many of my (and I'm sure others) symptoms sound so much like multiple ailments and none with any real way to definitely diagnosis and treat.
Status - (just starting to fight again):
  Awaiting saliva test kit.
  Awaiting book on adrenal fatigue.
  Awaiting shipment of vitamin/supplement order.

I agree, but here's the cool thing.  There is nothing wrong with trying this path.  All it wants you to do, it eat right, take supplements, which all are healthy for you, and can be found cheap, exercise if possible, and sleep as much as you can.... and ofcourse, remove the stressors from you life.  You'll get your confirmation when it comes back with the results.  Then, that doubt that still lingers in the back of your mind, as it did with me... will go away.  You'll feel free, and that you can battle this now that you fully know what it is.

Orion, where did you get the saliva test?  Is it confirmed by a doctor?  I went to a doctor today and he said I should see and endocrinologist to check for adrenal inefficiancy.  He said they do a test that includes an injection.

My saliva test was purhcased at www.salivatest.com



This is not covered by insurance.

Yes, you can go to an Endo, however they'll be doing a blood/urine test. A saliva test is better at testing hormones, however I still suggest getting your Thyroid tested, due to the fact that adrenal fatigue and thryoid issues go hand in hand sometimes.

I highly recommend the saliva test administered through a naturopath doctor who can interpret the results for you and give you a diagnosis, along with supplements and advice on what to do/change. My doctor is in Atlanta and I'm in DC...but it works because he mailed me the saliva test, and 3 weeks after I took it, I had a consultation with him by phone.

Here is an Adrenal article by an ND in Seattle. I use her natural plant enzymes and natural herbs for hypoadrenalism and I have been helped greatly with this method. The article tells how you can get someone to check your BP lying down and again standing. It should rise from lying down to standing. Otherwise, you have hypoadrenalism.
