Adrenal fatigue symptoms not only do they manifest in stages but multiply as the condition progresses, eventually resulting in complex multi-organ syndromes. The sufferer represents multiple nonspecific symptoms that do not point to AF but when analyzed collectively, they give a general picture of a person who is stressed. Consequently, the symptoms represent the end results of AF as either mild, acute, severe, or chronic.
Most common Adrenal fatigue symptoms include;
Stage one (alarm reaction stage) is asymptomatic and daily normal activities are unaffected.
Stage two (resistance response stage) Symptoms begin to arise and they include anxiety, insomnia, irritability, recurrent infections, difficulty in falling asleep as well as frequent awakenings.
Also, PMS, menstrual irregularities, and symptoms suggestive of hypothyroidism.
Stage three (adrenal exhaustion stage). Mild or moderate stage two symptoms become persistent or chronic. Dysregulated metabolism and detoxification lead to paradoxical reactions, unpredictable manifestations, as well as, exaggerated outcomes. Hormonal levels drop below average leading to extreme loss of energy.
As the condition advances, the person is bedridden and normal activities need ambulatory assistance.
Stage four (failure stage) symptoms include extreme fatigue, symptoms that are similar to Addison’s disease, muscle weakness, nausea, vomiting, weight loss, loss of appetite, electrolyte imbalance, dehydration,
Other adrenal fatigue symptoms in this stage include sweating, hypoglycemia, headache, irregular menstrual cycles, depression, and orthostatic hypotension,
Also, Reactive sugar imbalances, sudden onset of anxiety, fragile blood pressure, postural hypotension, heart palpitations, POTS, anxiety reactions, periodic adrenaline rushes, fragile fluid state, dizziness, being “wired and tired,” and a sensation of impending doom become popular.
Medical Treatment for Adrenal Fatigue
Unfortunately, medical treatment for adrenal fatigue remains unavailable up to now. This is because the condition has not been recognized in mainstream conventional institutions. Therefore, clinicians aren’t taught about this condition in medical schools, and also, no diagnostic test tools.
Consequently, Clinicians End up Unintentionally Misdiagnose the Condition Based on Prevailing Symptoms.
1) AF symptoms will be managed with anxiolytics or anti-depressants.
2) AF symptoms will be confused with Addison’s disease or Cushing’s syndrome.
3) AF condition will be managed with anti-thyroids.
4) Multi-organ symptoms, especially in advanced AF will be managed symptomatically.
Eventually, the condition worsens despite a change of doctors because there’s no medical treatment for adrenal fatigue
Precautions for adrenal fatigue treatment.
1) Long-term use of stimulatory nutrients (e.g. Ginseng, licorice, ashwagandha, maca, vitamin B5, and vitamin B12) can lead to withdrawal problems and addiction.
2) Inexperienced clinicians and people in self-guided programs endanger their lives in case of complications.
3) Adequate data on toxic effects of many adrenal fatigue treatment supplements remains unknown. So you are advised to seek services from a qualified personnel who can guide you well.
4) Most Conventional clinicians are not well informed on Adrenal Fatigue because it is not a recognized condition in the mainstream medical community.
Adrenal fatigue treatment goal is to optimize the adrenals by preventing further progression, resolving the unpleasant reactions, and initiating proper nutrients for quick recovery. For a speedy and successful recovery, diet, nutrition, exercise, and electrolyte balance are the major determinants.
However, adrenal fatigue condition remains unknown in mainstream conventional institutions. The reason for this is because no diagnostic tools have been developed so far, and again, physicians are not taught about the condition in medical schools. So, clinicians unintentionally end up confusing the condition with other problems that present with similar symptoms.
