ACTH test in the morning

Feeling on edge due to test in the morning.

Have read about side affects and what to expect but still get worked up.

The hospital im going to injects into muscle in bottom and i think its this that worries me the most.

Your expereinces would be appreciated.

I need to start approaching tests and things with a different mind set..everything is always a major thing to me.

  • Its no big deal, really. I had a baseline blood test then the injection, went to sit in the waiting room for 30 mins then another blood test, back to the waiting room for 30mins then one final blood test then go home. No side effects whatsoever.
