> Dilated pupils and light sensitivity might be caused by adrenal fatigue.
Thanks Markus for your answer.
I had a 24h urinary test for the adrenal glands and the supression test as well, it was back in 2011, at the time my anxiety wasbad but not as bad as now...also had the 24h blood cortisol test, mean they take blood at different times of the day and at night...
The results was normal , thats what my Doc say....but I had the results on a paper and look on the internet and to my big surprise I found out that my adrenaline level was not detectable in my blood so very low, the noradrenaline level was also low, the cortisol was also low with 80, normal range are from 100 to 400 if I remember well...only the dopamine level was in the middle range and normal with the 24h urinary test...dont know how to interpret those results cause it can mean that I have too many adrenaline and noradrenaline in the body and dont excred it?
The blood tests show normal cortisol level at all the hours who they take it.
I guess the adrenal glands are weak cause of the chronic hign anxiety state, who is normal I guess and I guess I dont have to bother about the dilated pupils and light sensivity...
Just saw my Doc and he send me seeing a Neuro Doc for the chronic headache and jaw pain so one problem will be maybe fix...and for the anxiety nothing new...we talk about a new AD who will be on the market soon and we agree about trying it as soon as it will be out on the market...im meds sensitive now, small dose of ssri almost kill me and no its not anticipatory anxiety from taking a ssri since in the past I was use to start them at normal dose and sometimes high dose and never had increase anxiety and agitation from them...
Anyway thanks again, have a nice day!
