I've been away for a while. I've missed you....
I had a cortisol test done last week and my number is below normal. So I have adrenal insufficiency happening. Probably due to my prednisone use over the last 7 years.
Just wondering if anyone else has this, and what treatment you got? What symptoms you had? I don't want to start "Googling" anything right now. I'm having some very hard days lately, and the self diagnosing of the internet only makes my anxiety worse.
You can probably tell by the "tone" of my post that I'm "off". Especially those of you who know me well.....
Thanks for any feedback,
