Hi all, I come to this website everyday as a "lurker". No, not the creepy kind but someone who just reads posts and gains knowledge. I have been living with CFS for over 20 years. Like many others, it ebbs and flows for no apparent reason. Fortunately, I am able to function and work full-time but it is tremendously difficult. I push myself to extremes and have crashes regularly. I've been treated by every doctor under the sun without any real help, not that they weren't trying. I also went to the FFC in Philadelphia about 2 years ago and did their protocol for over a year without much relief. However...I've been reading a lot about the adrenals lately and present many of the symptoms of adrenal insufficiency, although my endocrine testing showed no abnormalities. I decided to treat them on my own using an adrenal health supplement about 3 days ago. They are in pill form and are taken 2x/day. Well, I took them on Wednesday evening after I ate and then went to bed. Thinking that they would just be another supplement that I would eventually cross off my list, I didn't put much hope in them. However, when I awoke on Thursday a.m., I had unusually high energy and my brain fog was gone. Now I know this may sound absurd to most and even as I write this, it does to me as well. So thinking that I was just having a "good" day, I went about business as ususal, taking the supplements again in the morning and later that evening. I awoke on Friday with even more energy and no brain fog! This is very unusual for me so I then began to think..."hmm, there may be something to this". Today I still feel energized and was UNABLE to take a nap, which is almost unprecedented. So my question is this...could I have an adrenal issue that was not picked up by the endocrinologist and is it possible for a supplement for this to have this dramatic effect in such a short period of time? Thanks for listening to me and especially for all of your posts, which are a true inspiration for me each and every day.
