    My doctors didn't test for a tumor nor did they test my hormones properly. My cortisol came back normal. It never occured to them that something was actually wrong. All of my symptoms where vague and very transient. One week I would feel horrible, the next I would be seemingly fine. But then I was only seeing GPs at the time.

    Adrenal insufficiency is a very hard thing to diagnose if you aren't looking for it.

    Re: Anyone here on Disability?

    This conversation really interest me.. In the fall I suffered with MAJOR lower back and lack of mucsle control of legs plus cramping .. At the time I was not a confirmed Addisonian.. but due to that and loose /watery bowels finall confirmed DX. I have an insisting back problem that added to the confusion and treatment at the time.
    Has anyone else had major bowels problem????

    After four years, two denials, and an attorney, I was approved for SSDI. The judge approved it on the basis of -- Addison's disease, mood disorder and anxiety disorder. My Internist and Psychiatrist were very supportive and I believe that is what really helped. For any of you trying to get disability, don't give up. Keep trying.

    Interesting. I went and saw my endo about a month ago and she suggested that I look into partial disability. I guess I've come to terms that it might be a good idea, but I don't really know where to begin. I just know I'm going to have to make some changes.
