Not sure whats going on?

I went to my doctor due to excess hair growth all over my body. They ran tests and found out that I have really high DHEAS, prolactin, and free testosterone levels. My doctor believes that I either have an dheas excreting adrenal adenoma or adrenal hyperplasia. I am in the process I getting a second opinion now. After talking to my doctors, I am worried something else is going on. They seem to think that only a few of my symptoms are from the adenoma/hyperplasia and I fee like I am going a little bit crazy. I am going to my primary doctor Thursday to talk with her but I was just wondering if anyone with an adrenal adenoma or adrenal hyperplasia has similar symptoms to me or if they had anything other illness as well. My doctor has also told me that my labs are complicated which makes me think something else might be going on.

My symptoms are:
lower back pain (constant although varying in severity for about a year, had an x-ray that came out fine)
my upper back has just began to hurt in the middle between my shoulder blades
pain in my knees/elbow/wrists
muscle pain and weakness especially in my arms
extreme fatigue
tingling in arms
tingling and swelling in legs
pain underarms
chest pains
pains in my side
discomfort in neck, like pressure or pinching
feeling very flush, and then having cold chills (my temp goes up and the comes down by a couple degrees when this happens)
cold hands and feet
thinning hair
burning scalp
vitamin d deficiency

My symptoms aren't constant, expect the back pain. Sometimes I feel fine, sometimes I feel horrible for weeks. It seems to be getting progressively worse in the last couple months. The left side of my body seems to have more symptoms.

I am not really sure whats going on or if all this is just from the adenoma. Any opinions or experiences?

Thank you.
