My husband actually has cardiomyopthy with heart failure and has been experiencing worsening symptoms for the past 6 months. we are at the point that we are in evaluation for a heart transplant. However, the transplant doc seems to think that my husband has an adrenal insufficency and we are currently waiting to get the tests done. Here are his symptoms, small brown spots on his face that have just shown up in the last 6 weeks, weight loss (10 pounds in 11 days), severe fatigue, muscle weakness, nausea, diarreaha, mental confusion or forgetfulness, low blood pressure and dehydration. do these symptoms make sense to any of you that have an adrenal diagnosis? After looking at the Addison's website listing symptoms, if appears as if he has almost ALL of the symptoms but alot of them are also symptoms of heart failure. the one thing with the heart failure that he does not have is the fluid retention... I am worried....
