sounds like adrenal fatigue.
"The term "adrenal fatigue" may be applied to a collection of mostly nonspecific symptoms such as "tiredness, trouble falling asleep at night or waking up in the morning, salt and sugar craving, and needing stimulants like caffeine to get through the day"."
you ever had a stress an resiliance test done?
"Do you feel tired all day long or have a mid-day energy drop? How about sleeping – difficulty falling asleep and/or waking up at 2-3 am & can’t get back to sleep? Do you carry most of your weight around your midsection? Stress comes from many facets of life & the truth is we all have it! Whether you are trying to lose weight, improve health, or train for an endurance event make sure your body is physically prepared to achieve these goals. You will test your stress hormone, cortisol, 4 times per day via an in-home saliva kit to see how they compare to optimal functioning ranges & if off balance, work to restore function via diet, exercise, lifestyle, and supplementation."
Components of Lab Package
- Cortisol x 4 times during the day (first thing in am, lunchtime, late afternoon, before bed)
another way to check to see if your adrenals are burnt out is to take you bp laying down flat, then stand up, wait about 30sec, and take again, this time standing up.
Your systolic bp should rise about 10 points, if it doesn't, or worse, drops, that could be a sign of adrenal disfunction.
