: : Becca, what do you mean, "all of this does not fit."? Sounds like he has autoimmune polyglandular failure. When the thyroid and adrenal glands failing health and worsening symtoms for months to years until a crisis occurs. Is your brother on replacement medication (cortisone) for now. I felt as if I had new lease on life after starting meds. There are several places to get info on the net and other msg boards also that lend a great deal of support. Becca, go to addisons.planroom.com/ That site will give you many links to lots of good sites. Happy hunting and if you have trouble let me know. Bill Baxter created this site recently as a source to lead to other sites. His wife was diagnosed with addisons which turned out to be caused by cancer and she is dying. We recently had a web mistress on one board to die unexpectdly of unknown causes. you will see her memorial on that site. Glad your brother is better. Maybe he should switch docs.
