Hi all,
 
I was diagnosed with MS in 2003. Since then I have discovered that I suffer from a condition called adrenal fatigue (adrenal insufficiency). I think it way have been what was wrong with me all along but as most most of you already know, once you've been diagnosed with MS your pretty much stuck with it. Anyway, for those of you who want to find out if you might have the same condition, I have listed below a web address that will give you information about it. This is not some kind of hype believe me, I have an enocrinologist who is treating me for this condition.

Hi Penny. I will check out the site. Thank you. I'm really troubled by fatigue as well as other things. I'm fighting a losing battle I'm afraid......but I have no plans of giving up the struggle! Hi I'm rather new by the way I'm trying to also find a color that's easy for me to see as my eyes and even hand-finger control are not what they used to be This is my first posting. I guess blue is best?                                                     Laters,    Sil

Why is it that when I do a Google search for this, a bunch of sites pop up, but they all are related to some doctor / someone who had a monetary interest in diagnosing someone with the disorder?
...I am not a doctor, nor health professional, and don't pretend to be one, here.....

Dear uppitycats,
 
As I'm sure you know, adrenal disease has been around for a long time. Doctors have always been trained to go by the morning cortisol test believing that if the cortisol levels are normal in the morning then everything must be ok. The problem is that some people have had an enormous amount of stress and it puts a major strain on the adrenal system causing it to not function well enough to keep cortisol levels in the normal range throughout the day. I'm sorry if you think this is a sales pitch...it's not. It's just something that a lot of doctors appear to not know about. Even my endocrinologist hadn't heard about it but the tests he ran on me proved to him that my previous doctor was correct in his diagnosis. My endocrinologist categorized it as addison's disease, I guess because there isn't another term for it as of yet.
 
I hope this clears up any misunderstanding.
 
Penny
