I ust had saliva testing. I was told I have very high AM cortisol , rest of day somewhat normal range. I was also told all my hormone levels were high.
My naturopath says my progesterone was very high .My progesterone was previously very low ( near zero by blood testing) and was put on oral progesterone by family MD.
Now I am told to stop all bioidentical hormones and we will discuss other treatments plans next week at appt.
I am confused.....
My symptoms are insomnia , anxiety surges, heart palps and racing at times, fatigue, ect...
Any opinions here??

Your symptoms may be the result of the meds your MD gave you. The anxiety, insomnia and fatigue could indicate an adrenal problem. Start by getting off all the stuff your MD put you on and see if you improve.
Thanks. I see an endo for my hypothyroid. She did a STIM test last year, and said it was normal. Most of the Md's say its nothing and want to give my sleeping pills or antidepressants to "relax' me. I have had lots of tests, but all that comes up is I am estrogen dominant, low progesterone, hypothyroid ( borderline) and I have thyroid nodules ( half thyroid removed from benign nodule).
I think it is just perimenopause and stress ( I am type A personality), plus there has been a lot of tough situations in my life the last 2-3 years.
I failed all my stim tests and still had Cushing's. You could be cyclical like me - which makes the case more difficult to diagnose, but still you have all the symptoms and damage, but the tests are not showing it. I could not sleep as that is when my cortisol kicked in, but I was high at night, low during the day, but my average, for the 24 hour tests, were normal! The 10 hour UFCs however, showed how high I was at night.
I also had all the thyroid issues - had my thyroid out in halves too for nodules.
Keep that in the back of your mind if things are not better - keep all copies of tests - there may be clues in there that you may learn later.
