I was diagnosed with this last yr …. It took my drs almost 3 yrs to final come with diagnosis , it has to do with your adrenalin glands an cortisone .. they pretty much attack and ur adrenalin becomes depleted . And so does your cortisone .. the episodes for me last from 1 day to 4 . They are brought on by stress lack of sleep . Well I am single mom of crazy 3 yr old and I been a night insomniac most my life .. if can help this mama out please I am new here

I'm really scared I think I have the for SURE my symptoms right now sleep issues not sleeping up for hours like till 3-4 in the morning headache, tremors where my head will shake ever so slightly, severe ringing the ears, numbness in feet and hand at times, night sweats where I'm drenched, migraines, weak muscles hard walking up a flight of stairs, skipping meals fasting, a severe OCD that's been putting major stress on my LIFE, dry eyes and vision not right at times with headaches behind the eyes, my hips are bone on bone with lots of pain the bones and joints are getting worse and I'm in tears I need to get my hips replaced but I'm so scared and I just want the right surgeon

And I just had a FULL body scan with more radiation exposure and a scan on my bladder and kidneys and I have a obstruction it's called UPJ Obstruction I'm trying to figure out what this is and I'm dehydrated as WELL I'm not drinking ENOUGH at ALL I'm causing this to get worse I'm SURE 😔

My hips are are bad they've been giving out lately the right one is worse it's so bad something is going on and I have trouble holding my urine at times so EVEN with going to the bathroom because of my hips and this obstruction I'm peeing on myself even on the toilet and going the other isn't a walk in the park either it's absolutely horrible 😥

The medicines I've been taking for years in a low dose is Prednisone 2.5mg and 100mg of Tramadol which I'm thinking isn't helping me really anymore and has contributed to my health getting worse and even cancer as well 😔

I have Rheumatoid Arthritis, Osteoporosis, Ankylosis Spondylitis and others like Fibromyalgia and Ulcerative Colitis and environmental exposures like radiation during treatment for breast cancer in 2016 but the symptoms are strong the headaches are horrible and the nocturnal night sweats are a beast I'm scared I'm dying from all this my feet are in so much pain lately too with the big toe on my left foot throbbing and numbness and pain I'm just tired of being sick but I'm causing some of this as well and what t this is doing to me mentally it's also a nightmare I need HELP 😥
