Has anyone had a Cortrosyn challenge test done?

    My endocrinologist, in trying to diagnose me, is having me do a Cortrosyn challenge test (blood draw, then injection of Cortrosyn, then blood draw one hour later) to check my adrenals. The pharmacist said it may make me dizzy or nauseated and right now my body is so incredibly off-kilter. Wondering if anyone else has done this and if the medication made you feel bad?

    Also, did the test help you learn anything?

    Thank you ~
