Unaddressed adrenal fatigue may lead to a more extreme depletion referred to as adrenal burnout, in which the body cannot cope with stress and the mind and body are on the verge of collapse. This can be prevented with lifestyle changes and the support of holistic therapies. Everyday stressors can be managed with healthy stress management behaviours and many risk factors for major chronic disease may be alleviated by techniques that also reduce stress.
The signs of adrenal burnout are often hard to diagnose correctly, since they seem like part of everyday life. But if you suffer from an afternoon energy crash that is followed by a boost of energy late in the evening, you should take a closer look. Are you often tired in the evening, but resist going to bed, only to feel wide awake when it’s after the time you should have gone to bed? Do you have trouble getting to sleep, and then find you wake up around 2 a.m.
Almost all sufferers of adrenal burnout, once diagnosed, report that afternoon energy crash, while more than half say they struggle with severe insomnia. Even when they do get the chance to catch up on their sleep, they awaken tired after more than 10 hours asleep. Some suffer night sweats. Others report anxiety and panic attacks, even when they don’t feel they have any reason to be anxious.
Other symptoms of adrenal burnout include depression, poor short-term memory and forgetfulness. They say they have no motivation to carry on with their usual routines. While they feel numbed emotionally, they can be surprised by crying jags, irritability and foggy thinking.
