Just when you think you have come in contact with all the incompetant doctors in the world, you find another one in another state. Amazing.
I hope you find a new one soon.

When you feel better sending a note or some pamphlets to you old doctor on adrenal insuffiency might make you feel better. This is secondary addisons and it just means your adrenals don't work, but your immune system is ok. It is treated the same way that primary addisons is with cortef and florinef supplementation.
They found mine with an insulin tolerance test, but there are many other tests for this as well. I can't believe your doctor is unaware of that condition and swept it under the rug.

I hope you get better soon.
