Re: addison's and perimenopause
I have had a terrible time with perimenopause. I was diagnosed with primary Addison's about 18 months ago, and the HC made an immediate and astounding improvement to my life. However, there were a bunch of symptoms that didn't disappear, and became clearer to identify once those associated with lack of cortisol had gone.
Night sweats is one of them. But worse for me was the terrible anxiety, the irritability, the tiredness, the incredibly sore, swollen breasts. In the end, my GP and I decided I was in perimenopause and we tried a number of solutions. What I've ended up taking is Depo-Provera. To be honest, the night sweats have not gone, but everything else has improved immensely.
I have not yet found a solution to the night-sweats, but if anyone out there does, please post.
