HI

Thanks for posting your query.

Well a low cortisol levels can definitely explain your problems . You need to get further tested to check for the cause of low cortisol levels. Low Cortisol levels usually happens due to problems in Adrenal glands , but what is the problem has to be evaluated . It needs further blood tests and scanning test.

In this regard I would recommnend you to consult an Endocrinologist and get yourself evaluated.

Hope this information was useful to you.
Any clarifications feel free to ask.
