In the spirit of full disclosure, I must say my neurologist didn't seem that intrigued by my hpa-axis dyregulation theory. So, no expert feedback on that. He was happier about prescribing Clonidine than Eplerenone as it has fewer side effects. He says "the neat thing about Clonidine is that if you don't have high blood pressure, it doesn't affect your blood pressure." He took my bp and it was normal. So, I start on a weekly .1 mg Clonidine patch tomorrow and go back in 3 months to recheck levels to see if an adjustment is needed.
Jimmylegs, he was all over our little "bet." He gave me the requisite tests (b12, magnesium, zinc, and d) and encouraged me to cheat to win. LOL I was appalled!
