What symptoms can I expect if my adrenals are overworked?
When our adrenals are overworked, we don’t sleep well, we feel tired during the day, and we’re emotionally on-edge, irritable, or anxious. We may have low libido, mental fog, and diminished productivity. We feel less resilience to stress of all kinds — every task seems harder and to take longer than it should. We may crave salty foods and feel lightheaded when we stand up quickly. Women with adrenal imbalance will often begin to rely on caffeine or refined carbohydrates for “pick-me-ups,” which can lead to unwanted weight gain, especially around the “trunk.” These are all signs that your adrenal glands may be working too hard.
