My cortisol results
Please can someone give me their views on my results in simple easy-to-take-in terms (I'm really struggling with brain fog and just can't take in the long reads that I can find on the internet).
I had a Cortisol test done as I'm looking to see if adrenal issues could be the source of my debilitating fatigue. It's more mental fatigue than physical fatigue; it's as if I'm carrying around lead weights on my eyes and shoulders so that getting up and doing something is an effort; I can ride a bike for 9 miles but all the time I have to fight wanting to close my eyes and lie down doing nothing, not always successfully.
