Addison's Disease symptoms

Postby aspe » Fri Feb 08, 2013 12:03 am

Hello, I've developed an all over bronze tan in the last week and considering I'm recovering fro bladder operation and haven't left my bedroom for 2 weeks, its a mystery. I got looked at by G P who said he suspected Addison's Disease. I've had blood tests and need more done but when I looked it up, some symptoms were similar to fibro esp fatigue and muscle weakness.
Has anyone here heard of it or been tested too?

Addisons disease is an autoimmune condition of the adrenal glands where they fail to produce enough aldosterone and cortisol.(yes a lot of the symptoms are similar to fibro). You usually have blood tests, scans but there is good info on NHS choices web page. Good luck. :teddy-bear:
