Addison's Disease board


I was diagnosed with Addison's one year ago, have a fairly large nodule on my thyroid and am going through extreme menopausal crap. Anyone else out there in the same boat? I am almost too tired to write this. I slept 12 hours last night, and my head is still foggy and can't seem to get energized. I have been using Byetta for one month now to help with energy levels - I am losing weight like crazy, but am very disappointed that I seem to regress every few days.

I've been walking 20 minutes a day now for 3 weeks, haven't yet been able to take vitamins due to nauseua, but that's the next step. I ran out of my estrogen cream one week ago, and think I am going through emotional depression because of that. The cream really worked..........so Monday I will call my naturopath.

Does it ever get any better, or is this as good as it gets?

Currently taking 30 mg Corteg, Synthroid & Protonix for reflux........plus estrogen/progestin creams. Periods are extremely irregular and bleeding for 3 weeks the last time..

thanks for listening.........
