09 Feb STUCK? You might be getting to much Cortisol
What happens if I have too much cortisol?
Some things that might happen to you…
- rapid weight gain mainly in the face, chest and the tummy with slender arms and legs
- a flushed and round face
- high blood pressure
- skin changes (bruises and purple stretch marks)
- muscle weakness
- mood swings, which show as anxiety, depression or irritability
- increased thirst and frequency of urination.
High cortisol levels over a prolonged time can also cause lack of sex drive and, in women, periods can become irregular, less frequent or stop altogether
In addition, there has been a long-standing association between raised or impaired regulation of cortisol levels and a number of psychiatric conditions such as anxiety and depression. However, the significance of this is not yet clearly understood but i did live this.
I had extreme adrenal fatigue and it came from high amounts of stress for years without rest. I had a lot of trauma in my late teen and i dealt with it be becoming a workaholic and I am a recovering people pleaser as well. It was a long road to recovery, but I finally feel like me again and I would love to help you achieve this too.Please feel free to contact me for coaching
