i think kiera has fed up of my questions.i just want to ask 'what are the test to be sure about having cyclic cushing syndrome?

i can bear all physical problems that are associated with this disease (whatever disease i have,because i still dont know what is my real problem? docters relate every thing with depression and i think all this is not due to depression.there must be some other reason behind this,)

but the mental problems i am facing are really unbearable.as i can't wake up early in the morning to go to work,and i feel drowsiness in day time,i feel no mental clarity,feel nervous,brain fog,i feel mental and physical fatigue all the time,lake of initiative drive,fading libido.
in simple words i don't know what to do in my life? what is the goal of my life?i choose kiera to ask the questions because i think he/she have impathy.

  • Ashar... I am not fed up with your questions at all, and I am pleased if any info I have helps you out. I just think you need to talk to your doctor so that you can get some tests done. First of all I would ask for a referral to an endocrinologist. An endo should know about cushings and be able to help you test. You do however need to test the cortisol multiple times for cyclic cushings, since the cortisol levels in the body fluctate in cycles. Here are some basic tests that you would need to have done. I would aslo ask for a CT of the adrenals and a MRI of the head. Serum Cortisol (8am and 11pm)Salvia Cortisol (8am and 11pm)Serum PotassiumSerum Vit DACTH24 hr urine for CortisolTestesteroneTSHT4 T3 Good Luck, Ashar!
