i have been tested for blood sugar and thyroid illness but my result came back normal.so according to lab i don't have neither thyroid problem not diabetes.
but i have never been tested for cortisol level.a psychiarist suggested me dexamethasone supression test ,he advised me this because he wanted to know ,if my depression is resistant or not.yes i have high cholestrol,high level of lipids in my blood stream.i dont know what is going on with me .i just want my tranquilty and mental peace back which has been destroyed by these problem.i often wake up with confusion,some time i feel like paranoia.i dont drink alchohal.and i have never been on steroid medication.will basal cortisol test be sufficient in making the diagnosis of cushing disease or cyclic cushing disease.i also take medicine to treat my hypertention but it works for short time.i take tranquilizer whenever i feel that bad feeling in my headit works but it makes me drowsy and i use to have a nap and when i wake up after taking nap i again start to feel bad in my mind.i cant explain what kind of bad i feel ,i know there is no muscle in brain but i feel stiffiness like feeling in my brain.and when i feel fulness in my stomach i also feel fulness like feeling in my brain.please tell me the way to bring back my tranquility and peace of my mind as well as to bring back my physical health.

thank you
