Slightly elevated morning Cortisol

Just wondering what some of the symptoms of a slightly elevated cortisol levels can be? My test results came back at about 750 nmol/L when they were supposed to be between 160-690.
is fatigue and faster pounding heart rate a symptom?

Fatigue is a classic symptom of Cushing's syndrome aka elevated cortisol. There are a lot of symptoms and no one has all of them. Some people have high blood pressure, high cholesterol, high glucose, high triglicerides (triglycerides), red or purple striae, buffalo hump, central obesity, poor healing, easy bruising, blood issues, heart issues, bone issues etc etc...

If you look it up, the lists go on and on. I know a lot of people with it but all of us, including me - are slightly different - we have a different set.

I had low BP, weight gain, poor healing, fatigue, etc.
