I'm a 20 year old female who suffers from Congenital


Q: I'm a 20 year old female who suffers from Congenital Adrenaline Hyperplasia. I was diagnosed when I was a newborn and since then I've been using fludcortisone and cortisteroids. I've never had an adrenal attack but lately I've been having these symptoms:

-Racing heart while resting
-Feeling like vomitting
-Stomach ache
-Constantly feeling dehydrated
-Also vommited 5 days ago for no reason

I know these symptoms can mean anything simple but I'm worried. These happened before and I've seen 2 endocrinologists, and one general surgeon, had blood work done: all say it's all psychological. But it just keeps happening again and again. I use my meds on time.

What should I do? How do I know I'm having an adrenaline attack?
