I am a 23 year old female who has struggled with my weight for years. The doctors and I have always thought it as simple overeating. However, I try to diet and exercise and I never lose any weight, only slowly gain. I was not always a heavy child. The weight suddenly came on when I was in the first grade. Around that time, I also had severe abdominal pains at night. The pains have gone away for the most part, only getting them about once or twice a year. However, new, seemingly unrelated things have begun to happen. I get frequent headaches (at least twice a week) that range in severity from annoying to almost migraine level. My vision is beginning to blur, not every day at first but more frequently now. I have always had irregular menstrual cycles, for a long time only getting them every three to four months if at all. I have been researching related diseases and several seem to fit. Do I have Cushings, hypothyrodism, or something else? I do have a rounded face and muscle pain somtimes along with fatigue and a lack of energy. I want to go to the doctor but I am afraid that they will not listen to me and brush me off like every other one has. Can anyone help me figure this out so I can go to the doctor with some good reasons as to what I have? :confused:
