low cortisol levels

I was getting a series of nerve blocks for neck pain and after four ended up with low cortisol levels, high blood pressure, rebound pain worse than the pain prior to the nerve blocks, weight gain, extreme tiredness, low Na and K levels. My family doc suspects everything is due to the steriods in the nerve blocks. After thinking, I remembered that i often have a slightly loe K and Na level. Could this be Minimal Change Syndrome?
