What have you been prescribed for addisons, and adenoma pituitary?

Either feeling so hot may be due to medications you are recieving or else due to either of the two diseases you have.

Endocrinologist should be able to decide whether adenoma surgery for removal should be performed instead of medication.

For addisons,tests are done for hormones (glucocorticoid and mineralo corticoid) and which ever is deficient is substituted in medicine form. For this too seek help of an endocrinologist.

You should have thyroid hormonal profile also done

. There is no direct remedy which can be suggested right now for your hot flushes unless full assessment of your hormone status is available apart from this that you get your blood pressure measured, if high, get treated, and have cold sponges,, try to stay in air-conditioned environment as far as possible, take plenty of liquids orally and be in touch of an endocrinologist
