I’m not sure in which thread I should post this question but since I have EDS (as well as POTS, CCSVI, fibro, chronic fatigue, MTHFR defects, any most all the comorbids) I thought I would start here. =)
My question is does anyone else here have Adrenal Insufficiency/Addisons Disease? I am not talking about Adrenal Fatigue.
This is the latest of conditions to add to all the others so I’m curious if anyone else has had it develop after being sick with all these other things? I do not have the antibody type of Addisons, but my testing shows results pointing to both type 1 and 2 adrenal insufficiency. I almost died last year because of it.
I’m really curious if it really is more of a type 2 and I could eventually recover from it? Has anyone else had that happen? I have been trying to wean down slowly on my steroids but so far I can only get so far before I start being very ill.
Anyway, just wondering if anyone else in this forum also suffers with this.
