Red face I need a doc!!Secondary Addison's

I've been through multiple tests, scans, ect. I believe I have secondary Addison's caused by a pituitary tumor. I've been to the hospital twice in the past year with "heat exhaustion" and what they insisted were anxiety issues. I believe I was actually having an Addison's crisis.

I need to find a doc in the Midwest that can finally diagnose me correctly. My ACTH stim test was baseline 6.3 cortisol and 21.5 at 30 minutes......in line with secondary AI but the doc isn't very knowledgable and said my reaction was great. I feel like I need to be treated for Addison's before I become extremely sick. Can anyone give me the name of a doc?
