18 years after my first of many adrenal crashes I have finally figured out how to quickly and safely address adrenal fatigue.

I thought I'd share my story to shed some light on the illusive topic of adrenal fatigue symptoms.
Mine is pretty simple. I was studying for 3 months in order to take a very important exam and was extremely emotionally distressed.
I began to get extremely tired despite exercising, sleeping 8 hours and eating well. At first I recognized the contribution of the stress and opted not to study as much. I also tried sleeping a bit more to get more rest.
To sum things up, I got to the point where I felt like I could sleep for a week straight and still be tired. To worsen the situation, I seemed to be having constant yeast infections. I explained the symptoms to a naturopath who put me on a couple of supplements including Isocort.
I was hesitant at first, but it definitely helped. I had more energy and was not feeling so dead during the day. After the exam was over, I weaned off of it, and felt fine. I wouldn't really want to be on any kind of pill for a long time, but it helped significantly.
I'm not a doctor, but from what I read about adrenal fatigue symptoms, I think that was exactly what I was experiencing. Keeping a healthy diet, exercising and sleep helped in ruling those factors out.
