I was diagnosed with addison disease 8 years ago whe I was 28. I had a bad hip pain 2 nights ago and I wasn't feeling great so I took an extra 20mg of cortef (hydrocortisone) by tablet.
About two hours after I surprisingly went in an adrenal crisis. I had a hard time breathing and thought I was dying then I passed out for over 5 minutes with some kind of seizure. My wife called 911 and gave me the injection of hydrocortisone. When I woke up I had lost my vision in my left eye for about 10 minutes.
I went to the hospital where they gave me hydrocortisone
intravenously and did some blood work then I was feeling ok so I came back home. My hip area was also back to normal.
My question is why did I go in crisis? It was my second major crisis but my first one was due to stomach flu. I am worry that I might now have crisis randomly.
