Adrenal fatigue occurs when the body’s adrenal system works to excess. Typically, the adrenal system activates in response to danger or severe stress. An individual with PTSD may experience adrenal activation under normal circumstances or in response to very minor stressors. Adrenal exhaustion can eventually lead to chronic fatigue that persists despite resting and actively striving to reduce stressors in one’s life. All body systems require energy, and adrenal overload is a very taxing and draining experience making managing other bodily functions more difficult. Excess cortisol can lead to hormonal deficiencies that influence the thyroid and different parts of the brain. Essentially, PTSD can make simple things, like studying for an exam or preparing a meal, extremely stressful and draining experiences.
