Hydrocortisone is not the answer. I already tried it in all variations of dosage. Not just HC but many cortisol supplements.
But I do believe Adrenal Fatigue is something we have. I also have it diagnosed on saliva test. But what causes it its the no AR functioning and sooner when I started looking this way I started to get better. But some might say, what about people getting better with all those adrenal supplements? Well, just look at the ingredients and you will find a lot of adaptogenic herbs, some even include the testo-boosters.
19 - Clomid and Tamox both makes me feel worse. I would say that we might increase our testosterone with it but since our body doesn’t feel the test, we will feel just the estrogen increasing. Again no AR functioning causes it.
What is interesting about AR and AF (androgen receptor and adrenal fatigue) is that since our AR is not functioning our body get stressed of too much estrogen, then our adrenal gland start to increase cortisol (that’s why pot belly, that’s why muscle loss, hard to gain muscle, etc) There’s one guy who got cured by doing the AR and AF route. His name here is Mitch. But since I think both AR and AF goes if you fix AR you will start to fix AF and your symptoms will get better. What people recommend to AF sufferers: Vegetable, no sugar, no alcohol, no drugs, no cigarettes, no steroids, no HRT (since what I said about the AR might be true then this is the result, more estrogen, more stress, more cortisol), increase vitamins and adaptogenic herbs.
