Tiredness: There are many causes of your symptoms. A failure of your adrenals, Addison's disease, causes fatigue, but this is rare, and unlikely as a cause. The term "Adrenal Fatigue" is popular on the internet, but is mostly a myth. Adrenals either work, or don't work, and you would need an ACTH test to figure that out.
