My heart rate went up, of course, because I was exercising. I felt slightly light headed but that tends to happen when I exercise and my heart was pounding really hard. The most unusual thing was the pain throughout my chest cavity and back. Basically it’s all been down hill since then. I have such a complicated medical history with auto immune disease and CAD that sometimes it is very hard to tell where my pain comes from. But I don’t remember anything more about getting on the elliptical. I just haven’t really recovered since then. Thank you so much for the contacts.

I understand not being able to pinpoint where it hurts. My pancreatic pain can be anywhere from my sternum to my hips, front and back, but I think that is just because there is so much scar tissue from surgeries and there are other problems caused by the P issues. I pray you can find a doctor(s) who can hone in on where your problem originates. As the old saw goes "the devil known is better than the unknown" and I have never believed that ignorance is bliss, unless you don't know what you don't know, then maybe it applies. Take care, Gary

I have SAI and was told not to exercise hard it can bring on a crisis. I know I had awful chest pain and rapid heart beat which landed me in the hospital, they stopped my hydrocortisone and started a prednisone. They now have me on a medicine to stop the Afib... What I hate is..... No one talks about the whys and where fors. Did the hydrocortisone cause it? Did the SAI cause it... Do I really need this medication if the hydrocortisone caused it... yicks why do they do that!

I was dx with SAI about one year ago, but they (Dr’s) have been warning me for years to expect this, as it will get here. It did! It is very hard to get any info because most just don’t know. I received the best info on the National S A I. I found this on Facebook of all places. Go to Facebook / Secondary Adrenal Insufficiency request being a member, you will answer simple questions. And you will be notified. They are strict rules you will have to follow, but they are simple to follow. Just common sense.
