Re: Chronically Fatigued College Student

Hi Ken,

It's hard to say for sure (over the internet) but you have signs and symptoms that may well respond to treatment for Adrenal Fatigue Syndrome (AFS). Its gonna be trial and error to find out the perfect blend. No one can really prescribe you.

Losing a lot of weight is classic sign of AFS. I was a rather skinny guy to start and after I lost 25 lbs additionally I looked terrible.

The lower back pain is often associated with AFS - I have heard that the adrenal glands are correlated with certain lower back nerves and when one gets inflamed the other can be in pain.

It's smart "common sense" that you got tested but I never was helped too much by tests. Adrenal Fatigue Syndrome (AFS) and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) are weird conditions that fly below the radar of some of the black-and-white standards and test ranges that apply to the non-extreme-stressed general public. IF your thyroid tests says your fine (like mine did), you may have a thyroid problem. My B12 test was fine, but I had a functional B12 deficiency. Etc. ec.

If you don't have Dr. Lam's book and Dr. Wilson's book, I would recommend those.


If you put those key pieces of the puzzle in place first, you'll respond much better to supplements. For instance: Vitamin C works much better when dissolved in water and sipped slowly throughout a gentle yoga practice. Your body will be deeply cleansed and energize.

I would work on diet first if its not pixel perfect. Then do something to calm the mind / body. Then put energy into supplements.

I have taken bucketfulls of supplements but the most helpful were Vitamin C and Pantethine / pantethonic Acid.

I had dark circles under my eyes. I found they were a symptom of low testosterone. They went away when I stopped excessive (daily) self-gratification and stopped taking Propecia which was creating a hormone imbalance.
