Hello, I am a 32y/o female, married for 9 years, no children(never wanted them), and otherwise healthy except for the following: I have low am cortisol levels intermittently-one day low and the next average. I have low 24 hour urinary cortisol levels. All other blood work is wnl(within normal limits). I have low blood pressure-nearly shocky (90/60). I have high bad cholesterol levels-50 points above normal. I am constantly exhausted and have unrefreshing sleep (wake up at least 3-4 times a night). All of these symptoms have been going on for at least 11+years and no doctor can explain the nature of its origin. I have had psychiatric tests done and whatever I have it is not mentally related (depression, mania, etc...). I recently had a mri of my puititary and it was normal. Can any of you tell me what this is, or what it is like, or maybe guess so I have something to look for??? Help is despirately needed and appreciated. Thank you!
