After being sick for the last 3 years, I paid to have some very expensive blood tests done since the NHS were not willing. I have a history of constant headaches/migraines everyday, extreme fatigue, loss of feeling in some of my extremities, as well as a myriad of loads of other symptoms too long to bore you with.
I was told my cortisol blood levels were high at 9am at 655 with the specific range given by the lab as 166 - 507
Does this look abnormally high? I have to say the only stress in my life is being chronically unwell and I don't think i was particularly stressed that early in the morning when I had this done. Also I am not on and haven't been on any kind of medication around that time or within a year and a half of it.
Did any of your GP's follow through either with more tests or a referral to an Endo after a result like this? Or did you get dismissed?
I'm under a new Neuro team i am meeting on Monday after being handed around different places because no one could figure out these constant extreme headaches every day.
Any advice or experience would be so appreciated.
