Okay, here's the long story short: I was sick for almost two years, docs didn't know what was wrong, I figured out on my own that I was allergic to wheat, I went to a naturopath for a change who confirmed the wheat thing and also told me I had something that the western medical world doesn't really believe in called Adrenal Fatigue. Now I take some herbal supplements to support my adrenals.
Sounds nice, right? But the thing is that I'm still so exhausted that I can't even make it through a half day at work much less finish the incomplete paper I'm supposed to be finishing up this semester. But I was watching some stupid show on TV that mentioned something called Addison's Disease.
So of course on a whim I looked it up. My symptoms exactly! Okay mostly. My skin isn't tan necessarily, instead it is oddly splotchy reddish. The splotchy reddish IS kind of an odd thing, like rashy almost, but not itchy, just weird colored. But it's not really tan. That's the only Addison's symptom I'm kind of iffy on.
Question for you mama's: I don't have insurance, but I would like to check out to see if I have this just to set my mind at ease. But I can't really afford to go running to the doctor on a whim. Am I a hypochondriac? Does anyone here have any experience with Addison's? Any doctors in the room? I'm so sick of being sick, it's not even the least bit funny.
