I am 50 years old and recently found out tht I have high cortisol and over 3 testing periods it has come down from the high 500's to mid 350 range. My DHEA is also high. I went to a new Dr and he has requested a 24 hour urine and a blood panel. I am always fatigued and sleep poorly in addition to mid section weight gain 5"7 155 lbs. I am post menpausal, two and a half years since my last period.
The weirdest sensation that I am experiencing is that I feel like I have caffeine running through my veins and by brain pulsing. Up until now , I have been healthy. What questions should I be asking my DR? I don't have deep pockets and need to find some relief and restore my energy levels and sleep.
