Angry Army of one

Has anyone ever had this happen. I have been diagnosed with Addison's disease since 2003. Suddenly now strange things are happening I have normal fastin am cortisol levels. An suddenly normal hormone levels after being menopausal for 9 years. I am perplexed and my doctors are not interested at all.

Re: Army of one

I think society is under some allusion that modern medicine has it all figured out. Once you develop a significant health issue you come face to face with the sad truth. How Addison's and our required medication relates to hormones seems a bit of a mystery.
After being on cortisone acetate for over 20 years it suddenly stopped working so I switched to hydrocortisone. Shortly afterward (and most embarrassingly) I began developing man boobs. My doctor and Endo have no idea why.
