Is low cortisol the cause of muslce and fatigue issues?
I have been through sooooo many tests!! I just had a saliva test done and it showed high cortisol in the morning, and below normal from 10am to 10pm. I have been trying to figure out what is wrong with me. I had a muslce biopsy done (barbaric!!) and it showed problems, but nothing that could be identified. I went to an ND and he ran the cortisol test. From what I am reading low cortisol levels explains almost all of my sypmtoms... except muscle pain... do any of you have problems with muscle pain?
I have been taking an adrenal glandular supplement off and on for about 4 yrs and I know I would be in bed if it weren't for that. I did have an cortisone stimulation test done and it showed that my adrenals are fine. When I asked the doc if the problem could be from what gives the adrenals the chemicals it needs to function... he fluffed me off... hense my reason for my own research.
I would greatly appreciate any input. I also eat a LOT of salt, drink a lot of gatoraide (diluted)... but still have problems with dehydration, have problems with hypoglycemia, brain fog, memory, digestion, etc.
