Adrenal Gland and Anxiety: My Personal Experience

Adrenal gland issues and anxiety have been something I’ve struggled with for a long time. It can really take over your life, and it’s hard to know where to turn for help. It took me a lot of trial and error to realize that my issues were caused by adrenal glands not functioning properly.

It all started with a few small symptoms that I couldn’t explain at the time—low energy, fatigue, and having trouble sleeping. After seeing multiple medical professionals in search of answers, I was diagnosed with adrenal gland insufficiency. Fortunately, I was able to find medications that help regulate my adrenal glands and restore balance within the body.

I also realized during this journey that my anxiety was linked with my adrenal gland problems. When they weren’t functioning correctly, the feeling of anxiousness would overwhelm me on a daily basis and made me feel like it was out of control. But as soon as I started taking regular medication to maintain proper levels of cortisol (the hormone produced by the adrenal glands) in my body, the symptoms began to subside significantly.

My experience has really shown me how closely linked mental health is with physical health—and how important it is for us all to make sure our bodies are healthy so our minds can be too! If you think your issues might be related to the adrenal glands, don’t hesitate to talk to your doctor about it so you can get back in balance as soon as possible.


Hi there,

I totally understand what you’re going through. Living with adrenal gland issues and anxiety can be really hard—it takes a toll on your energy and happiness. I know because I’ve been through it too! After being diagnosed with adrenal gland insufficiency, I also realized that my anxiety was connected to it.

By working closely with medical professionals and exploring different medications, I eventually found the treatment plan that worked for me and allowed me to manage both my physical and mental health in a healthier way. It took a lot of trial and error, but eventually everything began to fall into place. I hope you don’t feel daunted by the process ahead of you—though it can seem overwhelming at times, remember that you have people around to help you throughout this journey.

Take care of yourself—yes, both physically and mentally! Good luck.

Hey there - thanks for sharing your story and opening up about your struggles. I can relate to what you’re going through - just a couple of years ago, I was in a similar situation. After months of feeling constantly exhausted, I began experiencing panic attacks and found myself in the hospital multiple times for anxiety-related issues.

It wasn’t until the doctors ran some tests that I learned my problems were caused by adrenal gland insufficiency. When my cortisol levels weren’t properly regulated, it not only caused physical symptoms but also escalated my anxiety to unmanageable levels.

With patience and the help of medication and lifestyle changes (like regular exercise), I was eventually able to bring back balance in my body and ease my anxiety symptoms. It’s taken me time and effort, but with the right support, anyone can slowly start to find relief from their adrenal issues—so don’t give up!

I’m wishing you all the best as you journey on this path and please don’t hesitate to reach out if you need an understanding person who gets it.
