I have had adrenal insufficiency off and on. First they said I had primary and then not at all with maybe a fatique type of thing going on....and then they said I had secondary and then they said I was producing again so they stopped all steroid use again. They did an MRI on my brain that showed: Normal size pituitary without well-defined nodule. What does that mean?

My mom, who is 82, has taken prednisone for 15 years and as a result, has been diagnosed with adrenal insufficiency. The doctors tell her that the only treatment is to increase her prednisone--which has not helped in the least. Is there anything else that can be done for her?

I am 33yrs old, no kids, on seasonale, so no period for 3 moths at a time. I recently took a pregnancy test as a joke for my sister, it was negative but later when I looked at it it was positive, I looked at the directions, they said AFTER 10 minutes you can get wrong results. but a week later I had a big clear sac 5 inches long and 3-4 inches aross come out, it had a blood clot on one end, where it seemed to have been attached to something. Inside the sack there was what looked like a little body, head with 2 tiny eyes, belly and cord. It was quite thick. I was at work and there was no way to keep it but I did take a pic to show my doctor. I waited 3 days to see her, she says endometrial cyst most likely but as soon as she saw the pictures she ordered blood work and a ultrasound which showed absolutely nothing but im still having pain. She was surprised and said she had never seen that before. Could it have been a miscarriage? I do have adrenal insufficiency which throws off my blood work ad other medical issues. If not a miscarriage, what would your opinion be?

Hi I have subclinical hypothyroidism and I suspect that I could also be having adrenal insufficiency but my doctor does not think so in spite of the fact that I have many symptoms of Addison s disease. Moreover, I find it difficult to cope with stress and generally tend to avoid meeting people too frequently or to join a group or club. I begin to feel drained when in company instead of feeling energetic. Thus I cannot enjoy a healthy social life . I am 51 .
