I have chronic fatigue issues, which I believe is likely from adrenal fatigue caused by years of ongoing stress with our medical issues. I have started to look into/address the adrenal issues, but I have not been successful yet.
I tried licorice, which made me feel "awake". However, I have tendon/tennis elbow issues, and I don't feel comfortable staying on licorice. Plus, there are concerns about
staying on licorice.
I tried ashwagandha, but it messed up my sleep.
I tried a supplement that my functional medicine MD doctor suggested, and it caused headaches.
I have now tried Byron White Adrenal / Para supplement - just one drop yesterday.
I simply took one drop.
Hours later, I developed a mild headache (similiar to that other supplement I tried noted above).
Several hours later, I felt knocked out and couldn't function. I was knocked out/in bed for nearly 14 hours, and I slept for most of it (with several interruptions from family and from waking up). I felt the same like I do every morning - slow to get up.
I realize it has a lot of ingredients, but how can an adrenal supplement just worsen my fatigue issues?
Could it be a temporary thing that I just need to work through?
Or like nearly all the other supplements I seem to try for adrenals, is it just not the right one for me again?
With licorice, I just felt better pretty quickly.
I suspect I have cortisol problems, which is why licorice was so helpful for me.
Is there anything similar to licorice to try if this Byron White just continues to worsen my fatigue?
I really feel lost on addressing adrenal issues.
I retried the Byron White Adrenal/Para NS the past some months. I've mostly been on the A-Inflam and Adrenal/Para formulas. I've been doing some other formulas, but mostly, I've been sticking with these two consistently the past few recent months.
And... in regards to my chronic fatigue issues, I really feel like it has helped. I felt it definitely took awhile for sure. But my fatigue issues have noticeably decreased. I don't feel awesome - but I do feel better. I'm able to accomplish MUCH more in a given day than I have been previously. And I'm so extremely grateful.
I hope it lasts. Chronic fatigue is a major pain and so misunderstood.
Just wanted to share something positive. And wanted to share my experience with these formulas (since not many people use/share about
Kid#1: Extremely sick for several years, very difficult to treat, but doing great now!
Kid#2: Still sick now despite being treated for years but doing better (not well yet).
Kid#3: Generally good but relapsing off/on.
Me: Adv Labs positive 2016 (suspected I passed to my kids)-not as sick as others, mostly battling fatigue and yeast issues (heart/kidney issues resolved)
Treating with herbals now.
