I'm so exhausted - in a way I can't explain. I've lost 27lbs in 6 months. I'm 43 and a size 0 now. I feel like I am dying. I mean, I don't think I'm actually dying, but I feel like this is what my body would feel like if it were just slowly dying. The most minimal activity is completely exhausting. My life has changed so drastically over the past 3 months. It's so hard not knowing why this is happening.
Anyway, I had some labs done recently and my ANA was positive. Only 1:80, but positive still. Last night I was just so very tired and I just wanted to try to find some answers. So, I looked at the symptoms of about 20 autoimmune diseases. I was surprised to find that all of my unusual (and seemingly unrelated) symptoms show up in Addison's disease. It's a long shot, because I know it's so rare - but, it would just explain everything.
I just had a CT scan to try to determine what is happening with my body. From what I have read, it seems that my adrenal glands would have shown up as small on the CT. They were seen as being within normal limits.
Does this mean that I couldn't have Addison's?
Thank you in advance!
