I turned to FB to help regarding the adrenals. I am getting way too many answers that are all over the place. I need guidance. I have dealt with adrenal issues for a long time but since having my thyroid removed, they have crashed. Last summer, I had knees buckling, syncope..I mean, it was awful. No adrenal supplements have ever helped me. I quit them. They all suck. Epidurals helped this every time. This last time, I had an epidural and within weeks of feeling hyped, energetic, etc...my adrenals totally crashed. I could barely get out of bed. Severe depression came on. Ad to it, my mom dying, the flu, a sinus infection and two periods in one month, you could say for sure, that my adrenals are fried. My knees are shaky, things are truly amiss. My doctor put me on 3 mg of Prednisone a day. I felt awful. Like awful. I went up to 5 mg but on FB, they are telling me, that is too low. I don't feel great on 5 either. I have been in bed all day. But, it's been better than the 3 mg. They are telling me on FB to go on between 7 and 8 mg of prednisone that 5 is too low. This is prednisone, not HC as HC makes me feel crazy. I am taking 2 mg when I wake up which is way too late. Then I am taking 2 in the afternoon and 1 mg at nighttime. Someone said to take it every 4 hours and another person said to take it every 8 hours. ???? Two different admins. My concern is, I don't want to mess my adrenals up even more, so if anyone has any advice, or knowledge, I would appreciate it. I have an apt with an adrenal specialist, but its not until April 28th which is too long. Welcome to city doctors. Sometimes 6 month waits.
