My tests showed my cortisol is way low, so is my DHEA. My Dr. said this is why I have anxiety. I usually sleep like a log because of my anti anxiety meds, well not last night. He assured me the cortisol (the prescription says hydrocortisone) would not cause me more anxiety. I just know I woke up several times last night and then when I woke up at 6 I had anxiety, which is normal for me. Does anyone have any experience with taking this? Does it help?? I'm sooooo tired of anxiety
There's a difference between cortisone (the med) and cortisol (produced by your body). I think it's more likely that cortisol, and since I'm not medically proficient I can't describe it to you, has to do with fat production. Look it up to get the definition and causes. I believe it's more likely that insomnia would produce cortisol. Cortisol is probably helped to be produced by the anxiety... and the insomnia, which for me go hand in hand.
