In brief: Yes

However, there are many other causes of these symptoms so you would need testing to find out if it is your adrenals.
'adrenal fatigue' is not generally recognized by mainstream medicine and, i believe, is a real condition that unlike addison's disease, is not life threatening but can cause symptoms that can be very distressing. You would need to see an integrative or naturopathic physician.
