Adrenal Fatigue - Can I SCUBA dive and other questions on activites

Asked on August 08, 2013

I tried to post this earlier - don't know why it didn't show up.

I have stage 3 AF of the low cortisol kind. Almost everything I can find on AF is geared for people with high cortisol. Are the activity requirements different for someone with more cortisol? For instance, if the normal requirement is for walking because someone is high cortisol, should I be trying to do something like running to raise my cortisol?

Also, wondering if I can SCUBA dive, specifically deep wreck dive (80 - 110 feet deep) while trying to recover from this AF state? I've read that being at a certain depth for a certain time is the equivalent to running for 20 minutes. If it's true that running would be bad for me, I would think SCUBA would be just as bad, even though it feels like a very minimal exertion (I suppose the issue it the pressure and it's effects on the body). I ask because I have 1, maybe 2, upcoming SCUBA trips and need to make alternate plans ASAP if diving is a bad idea for me.
