about cortisol and aldasterone...these are stress hormones, are they not? i ask because last spring i was dx'd with central serous retinopathy (CSR). in women its much less common (and it seems not all that common even in men) and the risk factors include stress and steroid use. i did have 2 rounds of low dose steroids about a year before (1st round started at 80 mg then tapered off, second round started at 40mg then tapered off) and a third round of high dose oral decadron (140 mgs!!! for 3 days) about 6 months before but none around the time of the diagnosis. the retinal specialist considered the steroid rounds non-contributory. i was under an extraordinary amount of stress around the time of my diagnosis with CSR though. i wonder if these hormones were a factor in developing it... if my GP is willing i will get tested for it.
so high levels of these hormones can cause the awful frozen feet?
