If you are concerned that you may have addisons disease you will need a good exam and specialized testing.

Here is an excellent article from a highly respected source that discusses this in detail:

http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/addisons-disease/home/ovc-20155636

So. What should you do?

1. The ER is not the best place to go in order to get addisons disease diagnosed and treatment started.

2. I suggest you see your primary care MD or, if possible, an endocrinologist specialist.

Does this make sense to you?
