The main Symptom is Fatigue and/or Stress, which is not relieved by even enough sleep. You may look and act relatively normal with Adrenal Fatigue without any obvious symptoms of Physical Illness, but you may experience and live with a general sense of "Unwellness",Tiredness or "Gray" feelings.

Although Adrenal Fatigue affects millions of people around the world, Allopathic medicine (Orthodox/conventional medicine) does not yet have any meaningful treatment remedies for it.
The so called "Alternative" Medical Practitioners across the various cultures of Treatment Paradigms have over the years treated successfully Adrenal Fatigue with what they know best: FOOD! Remember this: "Let Food Be Your Medicine, And Your Medicine Be Your Food!" Who said that? We leave it to you!
In all cases we would suggest that you contact a Naturopathic Medical Practitioner in the first instance.
