hi, I'm new here. long story short, I had an acth stim test done because my cortisol was low. I was recently diagnosed with myasthenia gravis and was on prednisone, so I stopped that for a week before the test. test results said my cortisol was .5 away form being low and my acth was low. I get a call from the drs nurse and she just said I have adrenal insufficiency and since I was on prednisone already to call them if im ever dropped below 2.5 mg and they will see me in 6 months. I looked at my labs online and it said I have mild adrenal insufficiency. after looking on Google I don't see anything about MILD adrenal insufficiency, and there are also 3 kinds of adrenal insufficiency. I'm kind of at a loss right now as to what I have. I did see my regular dr. and he said the end didn't write any notes, now I have to wait to see a new end just to know what I actually have and what my future holds. any input would be nice. I have sjogrens, myasthenia gravis and now adrenal insufficiency. the prednisone is not helping. I think it's making me worse.
