about tests

I have not had any of the scary symptoms since the day before yesterday--after I had a healing dream. Not to be mistaken as part of a delusion; I had an emotionally healing dream when I was 14 years old and it has positively affected my life every since. I've also had other profound dreams I won't get into here...This was more of a physical healing dream rather than emotional...Could be the former was my mind's way of coping with somewhat hellish experiences, this time more of just a crisis, which I guess the psych world would explain as a coping mechanism, maybe transference, or it is something spiritual.

It could also be that I had a bad reaction from taking melatonin or magnesium citrate - even eating lots of cilantro and kale, and that this was a temporary reaction.

I'll never know. Or, the symptoms could very well come back.

My question about the tests - if I am not experiencing the symptoms I've had recently (panic attacks that led to racing thoughts and even severely distorted vision), wouldn't that skew the test results? I'm concerned about the cortisol since my panic attacks and other symptoms are no longer present and I have to do the 24 hour urine tests. I can't do it until the end of the week because my schedule is full of appointments and meetings and I can't carry around the damn bottle...or maybe I can but don't want to. Wouldn't you know though that the testing facility gave me a plastic container full of ACID that goes with the test that is meant for the processing lab! Thankfully I am thinking clear enough to have realized this is not a bottle I am to fill and called them.

Anyway, 3 tests will be drawn from this particular 24 hour urine test and am wondering if it will be as accurate if I lack symptoms at the time of the collection. Any opinions?
