What tests do I need to ask for from an Endo? by hotswap ..... Adrenal Fatigue Forum

I'm almost on my deathbed with fatigue, insomnia, daily panic attacks, trembles, shortness of breath, lack of appetite, hypoglycemia (diet controlled) and all sorts of digestive problems and severe multiple chemical sensitivities. I've done as much environmental clean up as I can but can't in my state for example escape a house that uses gas central heating.
I've been to ER twice and on both occasions it was attributed to panic attacks. Once they drew some blood but only standard blood work was taken.
I feel my body is shutting down and therefore rock bottom on cortisol. I tolerate no nutritional supplements except digestive aids. In fact most supplements make me worse and cause me to crash harder with no recovery from it. I can't do anything with candida or a sluggish liver due to absolutely no energy reserves. I tolerate about 15 foods which excludes starch, fruit, grains, eggs, dairy and nightshades.
I had a horrific reaction to an asthma inhaler where I thought I was going to die with breathing trouble, convulsions etc. I now understand it contains adrenaline, one of the worst things someone in my position could have. I also tried oxygen in a can and that made me worse. Not sure if that was the oxygen or a propellant that may have been included.
i'm literally shaking and feeling smothered all day. This is horrible way to live and I can't cope with much more of it.
What battery of tests should I ask for from an endocrinologist? Will the stim tests hurt me? Which for me might mean death.
Because I can barely eat, can anyone recommend a source of bassline nutrients that can help my body to function?
