Adrenal Fatigue Symptoms and Signs
When you know the warning signs of adrenal fatigue, it becomes easier to watch out for the condition. The last thing you want is to one day feel tired for no reason only to find out that the condition has worsened into something irreversible. Knowing the most common adrenal fatigue symptoms will help you be more wary, and it also helps you deal with the disease at whatever stage it reaches you.
Below are the many warning signs that you need to be wary of:
Abnormal sleep and energy patterns
People who have adrenal fatigue often have problems going to sleep and more so, getting out of bed in the morning. You may feel that your body is ready to crash and sleep the night away, but there are just too many things in your mind and you can’t just stop thinking. Some people even experience severe insomnia, and of course this leads to sleeping in abnormal hours and being very lethargic in them morning.
Anxiety and stress
We all go through periods in our life when we are extra anxious, but adrenal fatigue multiplies this exponentially. Watch out when you feel like you have no motivation, or your constantly worried for no reason, and your lack of patience and clear thinking is on a different level altogether. If you’re very irritable, your patience seems to have evaporated, and you can’t think clearly, then this may be a cause of concern.
Sudden changes in food habits
Adrenal fatigue can also be characterized by sudden cravings that you don’t normally exhibit – such as for salty (or sweet, according to this article) food. Sometimes you also feel hunger even after you’ve had a hearty meal, and sometimes that only thing that seems to ‘revive’ your energy is food.
Persistent muscle cramps, pain in the lower back, the feeling of weakened muscles, and aching bones can also be a symptom of adrenal fatigue. This article points out body aches in general as a symptom, but some people experience pain concentrated in the joints and the jaw. You especially have to watch out for either a sharp pain or a dull ache around the adrenal region.
Digestive and respiratory signs
Adrenal fatigue can have some effect on your digestive and respiratory systems, so among the signs are frequent urination, irritable bowel syndrome, indigestion, bloating, and sometimes constipation. You will also feel short of breath all the time, gasping or sighing more than usual.
This is a term aptly used for when you feel like your brain is foggy and everything seems so confusing when it should be clear as glass. Foggy thinking is a symptom of adrenal fatigue, and there’s a reason why your brain seems to not want to think clearly anymore.
There are many more adrenal fatigue symptoms out there, but these are the most common ones. Once you understand these symptoms, you should immediately get checked and go over treatment options like the Fatigue Fighter, which will bring back your much needed energy.
