You may be dealing with HPA Axis Dysfunction; in other words, Adrenal Fatigue.

What is HPA Axis?

The HPA Axis regulates your stress response.

Hypothalamus - is a part of the brain that initiates a stress response.

Pituitary - is a gland that receives the message and releases hormones.

Adrenal - the hormones travel to the adrenal glands to create cortisol.

So, what is HPA Axis Dysfunction?

When the HPA axis fails to regulate the stress response, it produces unhealthy levels of the hormone cortisol. Which then cause you have the symptoms mentioned above.

What should you do?

Speak to your health care provided about your symptoms so you can be you again.
