Hi I just got an order for blood work to be done yesterday from my pcp. I have an appt next wed. with a endocrinologist. Back in July 2011 I had my carpel tunnel Dr tell me he wouldn’t perform my surgery bc he tought I had something else going on besides carpel tunnel such as Addison.. nothing else was ever mention about it again until this past week. Its been proven that I do have the pseudotumor cerebri and the diamox zyrtec and zantac have all help tremendously as long as I don’t allow myself to get to acidic. Thanks to u on that Dr. D.. but I just all of the sudden have gotten so fatigued the past month no motavation what so ever and if I could I would sleep 24hr it seems along with no appetite at all the feeling of nausea and vomiting and left back & abdominal pain worse than my normal ha!. So I mentioned this to my pcp and also mentioned how my scars have went from white to brown, how my gums have even went from pink to dark brown all over time and he said it sounds like Addison’s. He gave me a dose some kind of cortisol steriod through my vein with saline after. And within 10 min I could actually stand up straight which I haven’t been able to do in a very long time. He just didn’t explain how long will that steriod last and also now that I got the medicine in me when I go get my blood drawn today will it be thrown off. Should my blood have been taken 1st or will it not matter for the blood test results? Ik my sodium has always been low I’m told to add salt to my diet but the problem is I can’t eat I’m I am now 7lb lighter than Iwas 3wks ago. I will keep u posted after I see the endocrinologist next week & see if I get some more answers!
