I just learned about Cushing’s and am pretty sure that this is what is going on with me. I have had my blood work done and the NP told me that everything looked fine and to take fiber pills and lose weight. I have gained 42LBS since May and don’t think I just need fiber… Some of the things I noticed on my test once I got a copy is that I had low testosterone levels (44.2 should be 63-120). I figured since she didn’t mention anything about this then she isn’t going to look too hard to find out what the deal is. I have suffered from vertigo for 25 years undiagnosed. I have been having a lot of joint pain, swelling in my face, hands and feet. I have hair growth on my nipples and chin and neck. On disability for depression, a lot of lower back pain for about 4 years. I have the hump on the back of my neck, rounded face, neck pain, heat and light sensitivity, night sweats, leg cramps, GROSS sweating. I can’t help but wonder if this is what I have, but I have been so beat up every year trying to find out what the problem is. I know something is wrong.
At this point I am looking at 3 things. MS, Cushing’s or Pre Menopause. I have a 46 month daughter and I am 43 years old. Does anyone have a clue for me?? J Do you think I am on the right track? I am doing the 24 hour wiz quiz today and I go to an Endocrinologist tomorrow. I will be seeing a Neurologist next week. I keep hearing that this is a very rare disease and to me it doesn’t look that way. Then I think how could I possibly have this if it is so rare. Help!
Happy Thoughts and Warm Hugs!
