Surging levels of Cortisol in the beginning phase of a panic attack can increase as high as 40%.9. If your adrenal reserve is low, you can experience rapid drops in blood sugar (hypoglycemia) during stress because there is not enough cortisol to maintain sugar levels. Your body will automatically respond by producing and secreting another adrenal hormone called adrenaline, Adrenaline will raise blood sugar to provide energy for the ‘fight or flight’ reaction AND it also causes anxiety.
People who have torched their stress system and burned up reserves will now have difficulty producing enough cortisol. If you have poor or low adrenal cortisol production, then you are more prone to flare-ups of temper, nervousness or shaking, palpitations and irritability You will have difficulty concentrating, you will crave salt and your sleep cycle will be greatly upset.
You can and will progress to have fear of situations that are even moderately stressful, and can have panic attacks and fatigue. Your body will feel cold, and you may have depression.
