SYMPTOMS OF ADRENAL BURNOUT |
Common symptoms include fatigue, some weakness and often depression. Others may be a craving for sweets, low blood pressure and low blood sugar. Low energy impairs every system of the body. Thus, secondary symptoms can range from impaired digestion, aches and pains to chronic or recurring infections.
Emotional and mental symptoms. Often, emotional and psychological symptoms are present or even predominant. Depression is very common. Apathy, despair and even suicidal tendencies are also quite common. Emotional instability, mood swings, bipolar disorder, anxiety, and irritability are also common symptoms associated with adrenal burnout syndrome. The world can look evil, one loses faith in people, and a hopeless attitude is not uncommon.
Compulsiveness and obsessive-compulsive tendencies may be associated with adrenal burnout. One may become addicted or very attracted to excessive exercise, sex, loud music or other forms of excitement. The unconscious goal is always the same, to stimulate the adrenals into activity.

Problems with a adrenal glands are more common than people think. Totally not a doctor so I'm not saying that it's what wrong, necesarily. But I can speak from my own experiences with the condition, and it seems a lot like it.
If you read parts of the article, please note that there is a difference between primary hypoadrenalism, which is quite rare, and having adrenal burnout, which personally I believe is very common.
I've passed out about 3 times, was fatigued, my vision went black a lot, some of the emotional stuff too. And I lost 8-10ish pounds. I didn't really have any of the compulsiveness symptoms.
