    Hi!
    I read your post regarding the book about Adrenal Fatigue.
    I am new to learning about all the "downed systems" with FMS.
    I was hoping you might be able to point me in the right direction for doing my own research, understanding what tests need to be done-and how to interpret them. and treatment.

    It seems so complicated at first to know where to start when so many different systems are comprimised with this DD.

    I have been to one specialist and he seems to think that I have to wait 2 months while I take 50mg <?> of DHEA a day, (as mine was at 34) and Creatine supplement 2.8 gm ( I had none), before we can go any further. This seems odd to me.

    I have had all the thyroid tests done and he says they are in range.
    But after reading a lot on this board it seems I need to find out what the symptoms for thyroid problems are myself and then get and interpret my own test results.
    Or just trust in this doctor? That is what I was hoping for when I made the decision to spend $$$$ to see him.
    Geesh, I'm confused :p
    Thank you for any thoughts about all this,
    Ziggy

    It was indeed my post on the book on Adrenal Fatigue, but I think Ziggy may have been addressing your answer to that post, right Ziggy?
    Whatever the reason, you did a superb job of answering the question.

    Hi!
    Klutzo was right. I was refering to your response to her post about the book.
    Thank you so much for all that you wrote on addressing the various systems.
    I am going to print it out-and go from there. Lot's of info to think about.
    I wish I had a specialist like yours. Mine seems to think addressing the adrenals and creatine will solve my problems. Or perhaps he just wants to see how I respond and not try more than one thing at a time, which has it's merits.
    I keep telling myself to be patient!
    Take Care,
    Ziggy
