just got back from Mayo. felt like it was wasted trip. cried for two days. Last doctor abruptly stopped eval and said eval was cancelled. I went because I beleive my adrenal gland is shot. I have read so much, including the adrenal fatigue book. Having taken prendisone and had thryoid disease, I was hoping that they would do cortisol saliva test and check diurnal rythym and also ACTH challenge test, PCR test, and A COMPLETE ADRENAL PROFIle. guess what they did .. a blood and urine test at 10:00 am. The results were the same as in the last TWO occasions and as a repeat, a complete waste of my time. When I asked him about other tests, if he had heard of james wilson, or the GAS, he said no but "that he knew how the adrenal glands work". He said he was going to do a blood test to rule out thyroid and then send me to the cardiology dept (despite no heart problems and his not hearing a murmur or MVP) and to go get a mamagram, then he sent me to an obgyn who was the most obnoxious dude on the planet with a god complex. I knew at this first meeting, that he was not going to give the tests I thought wise or expected. I started to cry which made him annoyed. I have been feeling so poorly for seven months, and I had such high expectations. I thought these guys were cutting edge,t hat they would not leave any stone unturned...especially since i have a past bout with subacute thyroid disease which was very hard to diagnose. This is a bunch of BS. My morning cortisol was a 9. I bet if they injected ACTH it would not have jumped much. No questions answered. A colossal waste of my time. The endocrinologist wants me back up there again in two weeks for a neurology and rhuemotology appt..I am going just to see what this guys says to be on my discharge interview. In the meantime, sorry for going on and on.. so mad(*^&%$$# but what do I do and who do I see. I am in a small town. SHould I see endocrinologist, neurologist, alternative med person. I am wondering if should just administer my own darn tests (saliva) send them out and then just follow wilson's protocal. These jerks are worthless.
