I recently had a 30 min synacthen test to investigate symptoms of muscle pain, weakness, fatigue, joint pain, headaches and brain fog for the past 2 years. My basal cortisol was 396 and 479 after 30mins.
Endo described the results as 'subnormal' in his letter to my doc and said that they 'may account' for my symptoms but I can't get an appointment to see the endo for another 5 weeks ..
Am wondering, do these results mean I definitely have some kind of Adrenal /pituitary problem or could there be another explanation? Could they even be a false result?
The numbers don't seem really super low, as in some people's cases. So I wondered if there's some alternative reason cortisol might be low? .. Any help greatly appreciated.. Thanks
