Many people seem to report having adrenal insufficiency but how they acquired it or how it was formerly diagnosed seems to vary. There is primary, otherwise known as Addison’s Disease, and secondary, which is linked to a number of causes, among them taking cortisol for other conditions, and some other conditions themselves which may affect the adrenals. Clearly, it can cause a range of symptoms and is a cause or mimicker of other conditions. I’d like to hear more accounts from people that experienced either primary or secondary and were eventually diagnosed.
