Symptoms of Adrenal Fatigue

Are you constantly feeling run down? Are you tired even after you sleep through the night? When you have asked doctors what the issue is, you may not have gotten a single answer. According to our team at Preferred Men's Medical Group's experience, you may have a condition known as Adrenal Fatigue.

What are the Adrenals?

Before we jump into adrenal fatigue, it is essential to understand the adrenals. The adrenal glands are two sack-like organs about the size of a grape or your thumb that rests on top of your kidneys. These organs are part of the endocrine system helping to produce more than 50 hormones that make your body function.

Hormones impact just about every organ and tissue in your body in one way or another. When working correctly, your adrenal glands release different levels of cortisol to help you wake up and go to sleep. When necessary, your body will spike cortisol to give you the “fight or flight” response to external stress.

What is Adrenal Fatigue?

The naturopath James Wilson, Ph.D., named the condition “adrenal fatigue” in 1998. Wilson noticed related symptoms resulted after adrenal glands functioned below a certain level. Adrenal fatigue usually goes with intense stress or infections such as bronchitis, flu, or pneumonia.

Wilson also pointed out that people with the condition often feel tired, “gray,” and feel wiped out regardless of how much sleep they get. People with adrenal fatigue often want salty snacks.

Symptoms of adrenal fatigue include:

  • Body aches
  • Fatigue
  • Lightheadedness
  • Loss of body hair
  • Low blood pressure
  • Skin discoloration (hyperpigmentation)
  • Unexplained weight loss

Related Illnesses

Symptoms of one condition can also point toward another condition. Many of the signs that characterize adrenal fatigue also can lend themselves to depression, sleep apnea, fibromyalgia, or many diseases.
