Re: low cortisol, low acth, almost quadrupled in stim?

I totally understand about the unemployed couch potato...I too was going along great in life and BAM i get a case of Mono and never recover. End results= Addison's.... But your test look normal to me did they do an actual ACTH level. that sometimes is how you can distinguish primary vs secondary. THE ACTH stim tests are more for primary and sometimes really don't tell us much if its not primary. Your thyroid as you know will cause the God awful fatigue and pretty much just an overall Blah to life...* i see your ACTH result now. It seems fine too....with secondary your ACTH will be lower usually meaning a pituitary issue have they set up MRIs?
