Thyroid Problems/Adrenal Crisis or not?
I believe I am experiencing episodes of adrenal crisis or nearly experiencing them.
It usually happens when my boyfriend and I fight over something on a day when I have been stressed. Something will trigger a sudden downturn and then I feel overwhelming sadness and usually will cry intensely for hours, curled up in a ball. I try to stop crying but I cannot stop and do not feel in control of the situation. I will also feel muscle weakness, chills, rapid heart rate, trouble thinking clearly and I will shake and convulse and my boyfriend said I had a rash last time it happened. Sometimes I will have the urge to harm myself or hit things during these times.
However, what makes me think it could be something other than an adrenal crisis is because I do not vomit or have diarrhea.
After it happens, I have a painful headache all the next day.
Could I be having adrenal crises? I suspect that I have congenital adrenal hyperplasia but have never been diagnosed yet.
Thank you for your time!!
Warm welcome to you!
When does is occur? Is it premenstrual? Please send your age. I dont think it is adrenal related. It is most probably 'Reactive Depression'. And In adrenal insufficiency we dont see adreno-cortical hyperplasia. Right now all I can say is its a type of depression you are facing. While replying please send recent lab reports if you have any! Might be of help.
Have a great day. Bye.
