DP triggered not caused? cured by fixing something unrelated? - Serious discussion topic

I wish I was good at writing tittles or even writing. I'd love to a good discussion as this is easily the best question i'll probably write, it's all down hill from here.

I'd like loads of opinions, stories and thoughts as possible.

I'll give two examples as I'm finding it hard putting this into the right words

1. Say you get DP from going out and taking a substance, for example the movie numb, smoked weed. From that day forward your head feels funny, numb and all the usual stuff we all know too well.

The usual assumption would be there is something wrong with my brain as my brain felt weird that night and still does.

In his case though, he fixed his Cortisol and cured his DP.

2. In my case, DP from stronger drugs. Turns out later down the line I have Adrenal Fatigue. By treating Adrenal Fatigue could it cure DP or do you think that it couldn't?

(not talking about specifically about Cortisol, rather the idea of getting cured from something unrelated to the cause)

My formulae conundrum;

A = weak adrenal glands. B = bad drug trip trigger.

A and B could be unrelated. I think it was just B and I now from stress also have A... but a very small percent of me thinks, maybe it could be B with A kicking in and keeping DP going?

My question is can the trigger, the drug trip (or whatever trigger) put you into DP but maybe trigger something else that is keeping you in it, for example hormones that when treated kills of the DP? (and dp we have any examples of this?)

EDIT: just been told an example of this, Bignoknow (Noah) triggered DP with medication to stop his drink addiction, yet cured it with Testosterone replacement therapy.

Is there such a thing as "adrenal fatigue"? The term often shows up in popular health books and on alternative medicine websites, but it isn't an accepted medical diagnosis.

  • Fatigue
  • Body aches
  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Low blood pressure
  • Lightheadedness
  • Loss of body hair
  • Skin discoloration (hyperpigmentation)

Proponents of the adrenal fatigue diagnosis claim this is a mild form of adrenal insufficiency caused by chronic stress. The adrenal glands produce hormones

with levels that can be detected in the blood.

It's frustrating to have persistent symptoms your doctor can't readily explain. One is tempted to agree to a diagnosis that

is not medically recognized or accepted. Look at the recommended treatments for adrenal, relaxation, reduce stress, etc.

One might just as well be diagnosed with Depersonalization LOL.

I think the logical progression is dp - stress - adrenal fatigue, with the latter being the effect rather than the cause.
