I'm wondering if there is much discussion on here related to adrenal diseases (primary or secondary). I have had live-changing, wicked fatigue for 2 years. It has also happened in my twenties and 1 year in my thirties. This round hit at age 43. I was working full-time, working out, and loving life. I had an endocrine work-up and was told everything was negative except for reactive hypoglycemia. However, in doing my own research (from reputable medical sources), I have found some things that contradict what my endo told me. He thinks my symptoms are related to elevated Epstein-Barr titers. However, I was told by an infectious disease doctor that I do not have EBV. So, the endo recommended Mayo Clinic. Has anyone had experience with going to Mayo for these symptoms (extreme fatigue, hypoglycemia, salt cravings, increased thirst, decrease appetite)? It seems like most doctors just write it off as depression, not exercising, not eating right. But I'm probably one of the few patients that actually eats tofu and sardines! And I absolutely would love to get back to running and lifting weights. But that was difficult when I couldn't even take a shower at my worst. Now I am able to take care of house chores and I do go on walks. However, I usually need to nap later in the day and feel worse after physical activity. Thanks for listening! I appreciate any input.
