My memory and concentration are so bad that I have difficulty remembering what the Endocrinologist said to me today. He did 2 stenachthen tests while I was in hospital which indicated Addisons so he put me on hydrocortisone 20mg twice daily. Now that that has not improved my symptoms in the slightest he wants me to wean off them and repeat the test in 4 weeks, he also admitted he got it wrong and I don't have Addisons. I also have a pituitary tumour an acoustic neuroma and an aneurysm. My life is unrecognisable.......I'm in constant pain in my joints, constant urination, had carpal tunnel release surgery, sleep all day long, no energy and full of anxiety and depression. My optic chiasma is being compromised and my vision, on bad days, is double or fuzzy. I have stopped being a functioning member of my family, 3 kids and a wonderful husband. I'm also an alcoholic in recovery for a good few years, a day at a time and would appreciate any help whatsoever in finding out where to go next. My Endocrinologist suggested a psychiatrist.......I am a mess right now, sobbing and wondering why the hell and how the hell do I keep on going when I don't have any cortisol in my system. Please help me x
