I had a 4 point saliva test that shows I'm low in cortisol in the am, normal during the day and high at night. My adrenaline is low too and  I have severe sleep issues.  My regenerative doc want to up my adrenaline.   Not sure what to think of this.  I'm really struggling again after having a better month.  Now I'm lost.  I need these surges and jerks to go away!  Besides cactus, who else is getting surges at night at the moment of sleep?

Hi Sleepless

I had adrenal fatigue. I had all the tests done last Christmas when I was at my worst. In the hospital my cortisol was less than 2 in the early am.

I've eliminated all forms of stress from my life, added excersize and yoga. Now I sleep all the time, the opposite of how i was for three years!

I'm for sure recovering. Diet is eggs, alot of water, chicken, and I usually end the day with cereal  :idiot: no rhyme or reason

Anyways. Things are improving. There is always hope people! I was one of the bad cases

So glad to hear you have recovered and are feeling better!
I have high cortisol all night into the morning and I also have POTS symptoms and my sleep disruption is pretty bad. I am taking phosphorylated serine to reduce cortisol and I meditate and do deep breathing exercises throughout the day when I feel stressed or have heart palpitations or high heart rate. I am slowly cutting out as much stress as I can out of my life--still have a ways to go though!
The heart stuff is the worst of it--when did your heart issues resolve?

I found out through timed urine:

Very high estrogen
Very high cortisol all day
Low progesterone
Low Dhea

Here are my cortisol results:
                       My result.           Norms
6:50 Am            246.4.               50-150
10:50 am.          486.5.               90-250
2:45 pm.           297.1.               60-180
6:45 pm.            193.1.               35-110
10:45 pm.          122.4.                15-60

I was taken off my synthetic estrogen for now. Will eventually go to bioidenticql
I was given a liver detox powder that is started 3 days ago
I was given adrenal calm, pregnenolone, dhea (low Dose)
I hope I'm not screwing things up. 

Have been more weak (they say that happens in a detox) and more irritable.

I think that once we are off ALL medication our results will normalise to an extent. These drugs (all the drugs not just tranquilisers) really mess up our hormonal and endrocine systems.

I think any drug has the ability to do great damage to our bodies.

I had really bad adrenal fatigue but, fortunately it has gotten better.  I still have to watch blood sugar levels like a hawk though and eat 5-6 small meals a day.  I try to eat a healthy high protein, low carb snack before bedtime to prevent a blood sugar drop.  I also have a similar snack on my nightstand in case I wake up at night with low sugar levels.  I try to stay away from sugary foods and drinks too because, they cause blood sugar spikes and dips as well.

Hi all. Anyone had any success balancing sugar. I have tried to diet but most of the day my sugar drops very low. I am so frustrated. Only think that eases this is regular sugary juice and Sprite.

Been to many docs...no help.

Any advice?
