Unhappy Low end Aldosterone Confused please help

Hi, I`m new here so bare with me

I`ve been having symptoms for about 4 years now, extreme fatigue, dizzyness, bloating, craving salt,and generally feeling awful 24/7 almost flu like. Ive had a few tests, thyroid is fine, although i was convinced it wasnt. I had a short synacthen test, to test adrenals and that came back normal, but looking at the other tests i have, i still think something is wrong, i still have symptoms, i sweat profusely, and cant exercise now (I used too!) as i feel really ill afterwards, any kind of slight excertion and i feel lightheaded, clammy,and i just have to sit down. I also drink alot! and im always passing urine.

Could you look at these results and shed some light on them please
Aldosterone 108 (100-800) although in range this is low!
Potassium 3.6 (3.4-5.0) In range again but low end
Sodium 145 (140-150)
Phosphate 0.80 (0.80-1.4) again low
B12 338 (211-911)
Ferritin 46.2 (10-291)
Vitamin D 55.1 (25 - 50) sub optimal

It cant be Addisons can it, as my test was ok, i`m at a loss

Caz
