: I would like to hear from as many of you as I can, who have been diagnosed with Addisons Disease. Please let me know How were you Diagnosed? and What symptoms did/do you have? and What tests were done to determined the Diagnosis? I have been feeling very "funny" (I can't explain it exactly) lately and fear I may have Addisons Disease.
: Please RUSH your responses, time is of the essence!
