Thanks, Redrose. I thought some of it was from my spinal problems and so my nerves to my stomach muscles aren't so good so its hard to contract, but after the pred, I'm pretty sure alot of my problems are better. Yeah, I need to get retested for cushings, I screwed it up by not getting it first thing in the morning and not having someone drive me. I didn't even know she was testing my cortisol because it was part of a panel. But even so, my ACTH was low and my cortisol was just at the lowest of normal range for 8AM and I got tested around noon, so my cortisol should have risen significantly by then (in the morning its the lowest and rises quickly once you are up and moving around) so at 8am, well, it was probably very low. I need to point that out to the rheumie without offending him and see if he will do it one more time. I see a new endo mid Oct so I can talk to her about
it too. I'm so glad you are pregnant and I hope you are doing well and not getting morning sickness and all. I always got it in the beginning, but AI disease is like having morning sickness all the time so...
