    Synacthen test today

    Had the test done this morning. It was nothing to worry about. If I don't hear anything the doc said I can assume it's normal! Crossing fingers I don't hear anything 🙏🏻

    Awesome news! I was wondering how you went with the test. The injection itself hurts like no other I've ever had in my life! I didn't want to say that before you had it done though as everyone is different. It also made me quite unwell

    I am keeping everything crossed for good results for you!

    It went really well. I didn't feel a thing. I was in and out within an hour. I've been feeling different today! Is that even possible �� Maybe coincidence!

    Wow really? I was stuck there for ages in day surgery! They took bloods at 8am for cortisol and ACTH levels, then the injection, then bloods half hour and an hour after that. Then I had to wait a while to ensure no bad reaction (aside from feeling like death as you already know), they then advised for me to go home and rest, not to go to work as it hadn't agreed with me. I can't remember what time I got out of there but it seemed to drag on a while! You're lucky!

    It's a good thing you haven't heard from them as they'd have your results by now <3

    They take two days and it's the weekend so Monday they'll be back at the earliest. I'm hoping for good news. 😊😊

    Mine was back within 24hrs, the hospital called me the next morning to tell me my test was positive and I had to go see my doctor for steroid replacement that day. Maybe different countries work differently though

    I've read there is a test where they take blood every so often for 24 hours, and another where they just take it twice(once before injection & once after). I had the second kind.
