Adrenal Fatigue & Burnout Symptoms: Online Test

I see many people who are over-stressed, burnout and anxious. The majority of them aren't fully aware that they are, and it is sometimes difficult to judge your own status.

Here is a beginning of a questionnaire which will help you find out if you need help.

For each question, count the result as such:

0 = Never/Rarely
