Question Itchy Skin symptom Addisons??

HI I am getting my cortisol and alderstone(SP?) blood test in the morning, hopefully can get some answers!!! Is itchy skin common if you have addisons as well? I forgot to mention it to my GP. I am still nauseous, very tired, craving salt, ( I felt the dr. would think I was weird for mentining that but I did), extremely tired. But the itchy is something I cant find as an addisons symptom, has anyone had itching?

Re: Itchy Skin symptom Addisons??

hi there... itchy skin is very common when your estrogen levels are low, and also common when you have weak/low thyroid function.... and so when you have weak adrenal function, your ovaries (which need to produce estrogen), and your thyroid (which needs to produce thyroid hormones), can often be deficient as well. I would have all of your hormones tested; estrogen, progesterone, thyroid hormones, etc.

Once you know what you're body is not producing on its own, and you fill in the gaps... you will feel much more vital!! Hang in there...
