I have all the symptoms of Cushings but my doctors are refusing to give me an MRI, or even a referral so I can get one done privately - what can I do?
I have had unexplained amenorrhea since age 14, an underactive thyroid, pituitary irregularities, dry cracking skin, headaches, night sweats & leg cramps, a buffalo hump and am overweight and suffer from depression as a result.
I am now 38 years old and exhausted. I have had so many examinations and blood tests done and been on so many kinds of HRT that I have lost count.
But yet the only time I have felt healthy was when I was pregnant (after my 6th IVF attempt) with my daughter. My hair and skin glowed, and I lost 2 stone in weight during my pregnancy. It was then I realised how run-down I normally feel.
Can anyone advise - What are my options?
