Question Confused over cortisol!

hello all,
I have been ill for a long time and when something new happens to my body i know,well my knee about 3 months ago started getting worse with arthritis so doctor put me on prednizone for 1 week,thats when i went down hill.The first 2 days was ok but then my legs felt like jelly, it took me a month to feel better.Well i was still ill feeling so doc ordered a 24 hour urine test for cortisol ,he said lisa i know you have been under alot of stress and he was so right so i figured ok so i took it back within 48 hours later,I did not think nothing of it util today when doc called and said lisa we want to do a cortisol swab or something like that and i said ok so im going friday.My question is would the doctor order these for no reason or could he be looking for something i am stumped. happy thanksgiving.
