I was given hydrocortisone for severe adrenal insufficiency, which I took for the chemical sensitivities symptoms and chronic fatigue syndrome, from 2004 to late 2005. It seemed to help. If anyone wishes to try this, they should have a test (don't remember the name) done for adrenal function. The doctor orders it; you have to save your urine for 24 hours and have it analyzed in a lab. Also, I was given a test performed at a hospital, for adrenal response to something they gave me intravenously. It's awful that I can't remember the details. But cortisone did work for me for awhile. It should boost your adrenal glands, which most likely are depleted because of stress and illness. If you read up on adrenal dysfunction, you find many of the symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome.

I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
