Does anyone have any experience with Addison's? I went to the Endo a while back for a bunch of weird symptoms. My doctor confirmed Hashimoto's but my thyroid is still in range, so she won't/can't medicate me. However, she did test my cortisol and it came back low. I went in for another blood test and a saliva test which also came back low. So she sent me for an ACTH Stimulation Test, and the results aren't what I expected. Here they are:
Base Cortisol: 14 (low/normal)
Cortisol after 30 minutes: 28 (high by 2 points)
Cortisol after 1 hr: 40 (high by 10 points)
That bottom number is a bit confusing since it's so high. I went in for low cortisol (was at 6 for each original test), add a little ACTH and it goes haywire. Does this mean secondary Addison's is possible, and that my pituitary may not be producing enough ACTH to stimulate my adrenals to produce cortisol?
Any and all advice is helpful! TIA.
