I have been diagnosed with adrenal insufficiency and am being treated with cortisol and alternative hormone therapy. The doctor has not called it Addison's and I have not asked him outright since my last appointment 2 weeks ago. The only reason I question if its Addison's is because the information that came with the cortisol prescription said it was used for Addison's disease. My symptoms are extreme exhaustion, unclear thinking (not knowing where I am when driving places I've been hundreds of times), sleep deprivation due to fibromyalgia pain, sore and weak muscles. I'm also having accupressure bi-weekly.
