Addison's disease is a medically recognized disorder characterized by some of the following symptoms:

weight loss, fatigue, muscle weakness, low blood and in some cases darkening of both unexposed and exposed skin.

Some people believe that it is related to an, as yet, unrecognized set of conditions commonly referred to as a adrenal fatigue. Adrenal fatigue is not recognized by mainstream medicine as a valid condition. Is Adrenal fatigue a valid disorder? Is it simply a matter that individuals with Adrenal fatigue are suffering from a case of Addisions disease that has not been properly diagnosed? Or is Adrenal Fatigue a pyschosomatic disorder?
