Check the type of meds you have. You might have a bad batch. I am telling everyone!
Read my letter to my doc:

Hi,

I have Addison's, and I know that my stress levels (and just about everything else) gets worse when I'm taking the wrong amount of medication. This is difficult to determine as it's mostly based on how you're feeling, how stressed you are, potential illness, etc. Many times this is difficult to catch; It usually takes me several days to recognize that I'm feeling stressed, usually after someone asks me to stop yelling at them. :) It's a difficult disease to keep up with, and I'm certainly not capable of diagnosing or un-diagnosing, but the dosage of medication could certainly affect your symptoms that you noted above.
