I read your post in Homegurl's thread. I didn't want to hijack her thread, so I'm starting this one.
Just want to say I'm sorry Dr W isn't working with you the way you'd like. It surprises me a little, actually, because I'm having so much success with him (at least, so far).
Part of the reason I like him so much is that he doesn't rely solely on tests; but part of what I don't like is that he rarely tests. (Sounds contradictory, doesn't it?) Sometimes, a girl just needs some tests to establish baselines, IMO.

Was he insistent on the homeopathic adrenal remedy and reluctant to Rx Cortef? I'm just curious about what happened... please don't reveal more than you're comfortable with.

Re: eleni61

Hi,
Actually I was doing really good on the armour for about 3 months. Got up to 1/2 and 1/8 grain without any side effects. Then the doctor said I need to take 1 grain. Well knowing how sensitive I am to meds I go slowly. I started on 1/2 and 1/4 grain. By the third day I was Hyper. I cut down, but by then my adrenals were messed up . i just had to go off of it. I like the doctor, I just wish I would have pressed to treat the adrenals first. He wants me to come up this week for an appointment. I don't know if I can get a ride. It is so funny, the whole time I was on armour I slept so well; felt good, except that last dosage. I hope to get back on it once my adrenal system heals again. I would rather take the cortisol than the stuff he mentioned, but he never offered to give me the cortisol. Don't know why.
