Indeed, credit goes to itsoveriknowiknow. Sorry about that, I copied & pasted your name by mistake.
Actually, I think everyone on this thread deserves a pat on the back - this entire ordeal has been a real bear.
As far as mitigating hyperactive adrenals, it’s a pretty complicated feat. You can listen to this discussion on youtube to get an idea of what it might entail: youtu.be/SM9vDjCuhvQ
I suggest that we each make a list of all the symptoms we’ve experienced. Include everything that seemed off: for example, insomnia, the periodic tingling sensation in the feet, the hardening of the sebum, itchy scalp, dry eyes, an increase in androgenicity (DHT is a powerful androgen that can cause back/shoulder hair), etc. This way we can compile a list of symptoms of this disorder, making it easier to troubleshoot and qualify/quantify progress.
I would strongly suggest that we do this before reading other people’s accounts, so as to avoid being influenced by what the others describe. We can compare our notes afterward and create a composite list.
