Can Any One Have Both Cushings And Addisons Disease?
 
Hi, I have hashimoto's and graves disease, and am on synthroid, but I still have so much muscle-joint pain, fatigue, heart probs, pernicious anemia and so much more. I have a very stressfull job as well, my adrenaline levels go up and down all day. I had to ask to get my cortisol level checked (by my G.P.) Blood cortisol came back 22.5, I told my Endo, now she is ordering a 24 hr urine test, to see more. My questions are; could I be moving in and out of addisons into cushings, like I am with hypo and hyper thyroid? And is 22.5 a level any of you have had but told you were still in normal range? (I have heard that before w/my tsh levels-but I was sick) If anyone can answer I would really be greatful. Thanks Rachel
Oh, and I have been having what appears to be panic attacks, first time for that...

You could check out cyclical cushings...
Good Luck!

It's definitely possible to have cyclic cushings! Google the word cushings and go to the cushings-help site. It's loaded with great info.
