      I actually had cushings disease first. My body made too much cortisol. Ultimately after years of surgeries, radiation, etc. They decided to remove my adrenal glands. Therefore I switched one disease for another. Addisons however can at least be controlled. I suggest looking at google for symptoms. It’s different for a lots of us .

      I guess I didn't read your full text. I have secondary adrenal insufficiency and my first symptoms are stomach symptoms. Stomach pain, nausea, diarrhea, and bloating. That's when my cortisol levels are too low and I updose. I hope this helps.

      Are you asking for symptoms of adrenal insufficiency/Addison's?

      I was diagnosed while in the hospital for covid so I couldn’t tell if I was having Covid symptoms or symptoms of Addisons. For me it all happened out of nowhere so it was some time during my hospital stay.
