What causes adrenal fatigue? Is it when the body has had too many anxiety attacks and stress over time?

In brief: Not a medical problm

"Adrenal fatigue" is a non medical term used by holistic doctors to describe a set of common symptoms that many people have who are depressed, anxious, stressed, etc.
People who are told of having this usually do not have any problem with their adrenal gland function, despite whatever non approved tests are done (typically a cortisol saliva test) that is described as "abnormal"

We live in such an advanced civilization that it can be difficult to distinguish real knowledge and solid facts from misinformation, ignorance, and outright claptrap; and unfortunately, our educational system fails miserably at teaching our citizenry to think critically and be skeptical.
