    First I recommend seeing your GP for a full physical health checkup. They may suggest further physical checks. However, I also suggest seeing a psychologist that specialises in stress management. There are a variety of cognitive-behavioural approaches to reducing stress - such as relaxation training, lifestyle changes, meditation and mindfulness.

    Hope that helps.

    I think that Dr Craigie has made some great suggestions.

    “Adrenal fatigue” is not a diagnosis which is used by evidence-based clinical health professionals but it is often used by practitioners of alternative and complementary medicine.

    The very vague signs of adrenal fatigue used by practitioners of alternative and complementary medicine can indicate serious illnesses which they are not competent to diagnose or treat.

    This is where (as Dr Craigie suggests), a detailed check-up from your GP is a good idea. Depending on the results of that, your GP will be able to suggest evidence-based treatment.

    All the best.

    Adrenalin, stress and fatigue are all good things when they occur at the right time. These things are designed to help us run away from animals attacking us in the wild and to deal with a flight and fright response. When these things occur at a time we want to relax they can cause havoc to the mind and body. It can make you irritable, angry, have night sweats and interestingly, eat more sugar. It has been shown through research that having a balanced nervous system can help with dealing with the flight and fright response. See your local chiropractor for more information on how chiropractic can help balance your nervous system.
