    Question Low cortisol, Normal Acth. Help please

    I have been seeing an endocrinologist who is at this point unsure whats wrong. My cortisol levels stay between 1.3-4.3 at 8am which is low but my ACTH is 18 at 8am. They did a ACTH stimulation test and it came back 39. I have horrible aches and pain in my back which is horrible, I have low to no energy at all, I feel dehydrated no matter how much water I drink. If you have any idea what this might be please let me know. My endo isn't able to put the pieces together and I am falling apart at the seams health wise. Thank you in advance for all of your reply's.

    Re: Low cortisol, Normal Acth. Help please

    Hi there Jeremy, How are you going now? I am unsure if you are still on the boards but have you had your levels re-checked at all to see if your levels are still low? Is there a possibility of seeing another Endocrinologist for a second opinion at all?

    Maybe have a search and a good read around the boards, there really is a wealth of information and lovely people here

    All the best!
