You could have Cushing's - and you could have the cyclical form.

The doctor may be dismissing the *highs* as some doctors have been trained, in error, that they have to be 2x or 3x the range - that is crazy wrong.

It can take a lot of testing to know if you are high, low or normal, and you need ACTH and other hormones to support the finding as well. I had cyclical Cushing's myself.
