CBD: I'm not an endocrinologist and no expert on your dx. Are you a candidate for surgery? Can't they remove your right adrenal gland? About meds and pain. 10 yrs is a long time. I just wondered if you have ever looked into medical use of marijauna and specifically the use of CBD, cannabidiol as adjuvent to your pain management. It has become legal in many states. Just an option to consider.
