Adrenal Fatigue/Breast lactating, fatigue, weakness, cold


So I am a 29 yr old woman, who has experienced constant debilitating fatigue since 6 months after my son was born.  He was born w/ panhypopituitarism.  my breasts have been lactating small amounts for almost 3 years & I never breast fed. I used to be able to lift anything, w/ no problem now I can't even open a bottle. I cant focus to complete simple tasks, become irritated & frustrated easily.  I also experience night sweats, skin breakouts & slow healing wounds/infections.  I keep telling my doc something is wrong, I can not sleep enough.  But my doc says I am just depressed & have alot on my plate. He did bloodwork at my request 2x's but it came back fine.  Is there a reason for this

UGHHH!!!  You are not crazy and living like that isn't normal :)  It's just a matter of finding a doctor who can help figure out what is going on. I'm not a doctor, nor can I give medical advice. But based on my experience it sounds like you have hormone stuff going on.  My encouragement to you would be to find a doctor who specializes in functional medicine and natural hormone therapy. These types of doctors are exceptionally talented in finding imbalances that "regular" run of the mill docs can't.  

I just wrote two posts on OrthoMolecular and Functional Medicine on my blog (Nov 9 & 16, 2010).  At the bottom of the Functional Medicine post there are links to organizations that can help you find a doc in your area.  I know of a few docs personally who are in San Francisco, CA; Madison, WI, Chicago, and Utah.
If you're near any of those places let me know!  

Also check out under "Free Downloads" my Adrenal Audios on my blog. They will help you understand what might be going on.

Hope this helps!!!

I cannot answer questions that would give medical advice, diagnose, or treat people's hypoglycemia.


I have been a natural health practitioner in Illinois since 2001 and have educated thousands of people on nutrition and healthy living. Although, this did not prepare me for what happened in 2007 when I became very ill with adrenal fatigue and hypoglycemia. I have been able to correct my health issues working along with my doctors as partners on my team. I encourage people to go back to their doctors, get educated, and become empowered patients. I've gone to the school of hard knocks the my own health and feel obligated to share with others how I got better. Plus, my experience as and educator and author helps :)
