Re: Addisons disease and headaches

Many people with Addison's take their cortisone split with most in AM and a smaller dose in afternoon, like 15/5. The headaches could be related to either too much or not enough Florinef, and your resultant BP and electrolytes in blood. You need a good endocrinologist to help you manage this, and adjust your doses so you feel your best. Keep in mind that one autoimmune disease is sometimes accompanied by another, and if all is well with your BP, electrolytes, you might pursue whether anything else is going on to explain your headaches and fatigue. Some people split their cortisone into 3 doses. I would check out the endocrine boards and Addison's threads.
