Symptoms of Adrenal Fatigue | Dr. Washatka

Often, individuals are unaware that they are suffering from adrenal fatigue. This is because many of the symptoms present themselves slowly. Today, many adults will explain their symptoms away, blaming them on a busy week or non-stop schedule. Some of the most common symptoms of adrenal fatigue include:

 

  • Body aches and pains
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Extreme exhaustion and fatigue
  • Salt or sugar cravings
  • Weight gain or weight loss
  • Dizziness or shakiness

 

These are just a few of the ways that adrenal fatigue presents itself in adults. Because the symptoms of adrenal fatigue are relatively common, they are easily overlooked. Unfortunately, many people mask their adrenal fatigue by consuming stimulants such as caffeine. This is why it is crucial to work with a functional medicine doctor.
