Posting here as a bit of a last resort. I’ll preface this with the fact that I know I caused this myself and am amazed at my own Capacity to ruin my body. About a year ago after massive depression I did a round of steroids for physical purposes. After about a month I stopped taking them I started to get this response like my body was in constant fight or flight. It was literally as if I had taken 1000mg of caffeine but was happening all day. I felt like my body was attacking itself. I figured I had just stopped the steroids and my hormones were correcting. After blood work everything came back normal. But I was sceptical because obviously cortisol tested once doesn’t mean a whole lot. I gave my body a year, tried natural remedies like adaptogens, vitman c, diet etc. But everything apart from the vit c makes it worse. I’m at a spot where my body is constantly tingling like I’m having a panick attack but 24/7. I have a constant sense of vertigo to the point where I feel like I’ll faint all day. I feel like I gave myself cushions syndrome or somehow messed up my HPA axis. What are next steps? I live in Canada and the health care system takes soooo long to get things going. Should I request seeing a specialist? I have a son and a baby on the way and I can’t imagine living like this. I can barely work and even days off are terrible. Please help
