Addisons & Tb

Hello, i've been realy ill for 3ys in May, initialy i thought i'd caught Swine Flu (ive posted on that board til now) however further research & family history show me it's Tuberculosis (mum had it & strong family history) Nhs refuse to test 4 that but do feel i've Addison's, i'm awaiting my 1st endo apt, off work sick indefinetly & just joining ur board now. I'm a big advocate of Linus Pauling & Vitc Ascorbic Acid (take 30kmg per day & also take Siberian Ginseng max dose 4 sleep i've severe insomnia without, Magnesium Citrate, kelp & a high protien diet. i suspect my uric acid & zinc low, i've hardly any sense of smell. i've learned that salt water has a massive affect on rehydrating my body by reading a link on here & trying it, tried Liquorice root, but i think i've high cortisol not low #Unsure & i have skull lumps so possible tumours plus liver Tb suspected (tongue indications & body swollen within wks at start of illness from size 16 to 22 tho that has eased a bit). This is just a hello i'm on ur board & looking 4 self help ideas 2 get stronger while awaiting medical peeps I'm 48ys & i've been ill on & off all my life worsening with age. i'm laying down 90+% of the time tho i can go out it is absolutely exhausting
