... Addisons and been on HIGH doses of meds for approx 16 years now. I have undergone 3 heart surgeries and looking for my 4th in October. I have NEVER found a support group for us before, so now I am wondering how many of us are also having heart complications as well. Who has had Addisons longer than 16 years? I would LOVE to talk with you!! I have many other complications now that all my specialists want to blame on the Addisons,except for my endrocrinologist. I am getting really frustrated with my cardiologist because he seems almost afraid to deal with me. He keeps putting me on meds that he doesnt understand how they deplete my cortisol levels so much.
I was diagnosed August 31, 2010 but I knew something was wrong long before I was actually given the diagnosis. I began with having a seizure (first crisis) in Feb. 2009 and it was still 18 months until I was diagnosed. I thought I was going crazy as well. I was angry all the time!!
