cannot gain weight :(

Does anyone else have this problem?? Inability to gain weight. It's both frustrating, and a bit frightening. I only weigh 80 pounds, yet I consume plenty of calories. In fact, I feel like I'm eating all of the time as I'm very hypoglycemic. I've always been fairly petite, but nothing like this. I've lost 10-15 pounds in the past 2 years.. I think due to stress and the worsening of this condition.

I'm trying to do everything I can to take care of myself.. I have found that most mainstream doctors are of little help.. but I just cannot gain a pound.

Wondering if this is common at all among others with Addison's?

Thanks in advance for ANY input

I also have this problem since diagnosis. I found that taking more hydrocortisone helps, but not much.
