Hi, I have recently been diagnosed with Addisons Disease after being really sick for about 6 months, but sick before that for a few years. I have started my new medications and finally I am able to eat and the vomiting has stopped and my skin already is starting to lose the dark tan look. But one thing that is now happening is I am retaining a lot of fluid and I have a tingling sensation in my hands. My endocrinology is currently on vacation as well as my family doctor and I am wondering why I am retaining all this fluid (like 8-10 pounds) of it and how to stop it from happening I was on .01 of the fludrocortisone but the doctor told me to cut it back to half And my hydrocortisone is take 15 mg in the morning and 5 at lunch and 5 at supper Any thoughts And thanks in advance So happy to be abe to touch base with people who have this and to be able to chat about it It is so new to me that I want to learn as much as I can
