I have gotten some test results back and am trying to make sense of them while waiting to hear back from the doctor. My ACTH was very low - <5 (scale starts at 9) and two different cortisol tests showed it was low. They had me come in today for the ACTH stim test and called me back to tell me that those results were all normal. So my understanding of that is that my adrenal glands are working fine, and it is something with my pituitary gland, correct?
My doctor initially said that she was thinking this was due to my taking steroids a few years ago (which honestly doesn't make sense to me, because the symptoms don't seem to fit, and I don't understand why it would suddenly appear 2 years after stopping the steroids).
I have been wondering if perhaps this might be a tumor that was missed last summer - one day, I suddenly started feeling dizzy and nauseous. I had an MRI and they said it was fine (they were looking for MS). I was diagnosed with a vestibular migraine and they said something was off with my vision. I have been dizzy every day since then, and in the last two months, have had a whole host of other symptoms: fatigue, weakness, shortness of breath, yellowing complexion, hair falling out, diarrhea (sorry), my foot broke for no reason, memory and concentration problems, inability to tolerate heat or cold, loss of appetite and weight loss, and the occasional terrible headache... and the dizziness has gotten much worse. i know these symptoms could be a lot of things.
does anyone have any experience with this or any thoughts? i am going crazy waiting for the doctor to call me and trying to figure out what it all means...
