Well i have recently been to the doctors and he has sent me for a blood test on my hormone levels which he said came back ok, so now i am unsure if i do have Cushing's or not.
i dont have all the symptoms but do have some which are:
Thirst and going to the toilet a lot - i have done this for years
Bad strech marks which ive have for about 3 years that cover my hips, breasts, legs all the way down to my knees and some on my stomach and under arms.
weight gain , athough its not tons, its still a lot which is mainly on my stomach and around my face, though i have put some onto my arms too.
i used to have low blood pressure but resently when i went it is now high but not by a lot, but still a sufficiant amount.
im always feeling very fatigued and get worn out a lot which has been happening for a good three years- i used to just think i was unfit but im now not sure- although it still could be.
i get very woozy and weak sometimes which really affects my legs which then feel very tingly.
i also do get very depressed a lot - i went through a faze when i was about 12 of being quite down but now over the past 2 years has gotten a lot worse and i just dont look the same as i used to....
i also get shooting pains down my neck and throat - which im unsure if is relavant or not....that happen very frequently
i sweat a ***l of a lot all the time from the tiniest thing
and the mucles in my arms are so tender and ache alot which has been happening for about 2 years....
I have now been getting a lot of headaches with burning pains in my head and have a very bloated, lumpy and painful stomach which has been there for about 2 months with contispation and diorrea- which i read somewhere that people get this with cushings.
i have extreamly irregular periods too.
i am 18 years old and am starting to get sick of feeling like this :(
sorry if this is just me being silly and over reacting but i just really need some advice...
thanks so much xx
