    (Mods please move if the topic isn't right for this board.)

    From what I've read about the symptoms, and personal experience, I have to think it's real but others poo-poo it. I have also seen it associated with exercising too frequently and/or strenuously. So it seems to me if you are into PMO but also working out a lot, you are at high risk... assuming it's a real thing. Thoughts or experiences to share?

    Adrenal fatigue is not a real thing. The closest real thing is adrenal insufficiency or Addison’s disease. Generally the body does not respond to stress by becoming weaker, rather it responds by becoming stronger. If you were exercising a lot, your adrenal glands might compensate by increased output, but they would not “run out” of cortisol. That’s not real.
