Adrenal fatigue is not a recognized diagnosis in science based medicine. Although inconsistent with our understanding of adrenal physiology, the theory is that the adrenal glands "wear out" after a prolonged stress leading to fatigue. There is no evidence or reason to believe this occurs. When the adrenals are damaged or fail in conditions such as addison's disease -- ...Read more

Many can help: The medical profession recognizes addison's disease, an extreme form of low adrenal function. However, only 1 in 10-25, 000 people have severe enough adrenal problems to qualify for addison's, but many millions have lesser yet very significant degrees of poor adrenal function. See http://www.Adrenalfatigue.Org/ and the book adrenal fatigue by dr. James wilson. See my comments for more information. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

May not need it: Adrenal fatigue is often a fake diagnosis. The adrenal makes cortisol and adrenaline, which are stress hormones. People who are stressed out and having trouble coping are sometimes persuaded that it’s the adrenal’s fault. This is usually not true. Poor adrenal function is determined by an acth (cotrosyn) stim test, and not by measuring just one blood or saliva level. See an endocrinologist. ...Read more

High calcium: This is probably not MS. The symptoms are not that particular to MS. Calcium levels should be normal in MS. How high is your calcium level? That can lead to several of these symptoms. If this is too high, perhaps treatment and/or referral to an endocrinologist is indicated. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Can adrenal fatigue cause low grade fever? Are progesterone and estrogen levels related to adrenalin and cortisol?
Dubious diagnosis: "adrenal fatigue" is a pop diagnosis, not an evidence-based one. Since true addison[s isn't a febrile illness, this isn't either. I've wondered if the "subclinical addison's" claims might have something to them, but would urge you not to self-diagnose. The danger of self-diagnosis / treatment is missing another real emotional, situational or physical problem. Your doctor should work your temp up. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
