A 34-year-old male asked:
How does continuous anxiety affect a person with primary addison's disease and zero adrenal function?

Worry: Anyone with generalized anxiety is likely to have a heightened sense of apprehension and worry (even to the point of paranoia), which is likely to become more apparent when faced with a medical problem. Simply getting a new medical diagnosis will probably worsen the anxiety. There is no direct connection between addison's disease and anxiety.
