I and my identical twin brother have a weird genetic disorder. At the age of 16, we became hyperprone to stretch marks and so I avoided serious athletic exercise. At 24 I developed rosacea and neck ring wrinkles. At 28.5 I developed two stomach wrinkles, stretch marks from sitting, persistant folliculitis, black heads on my nose, back acne, and delayed wound healing. I had a battery of blood tests done and so far the only that has come back abnormal is that i have 3 times the dhea and very low salivary, secretory IgA. Anyone have any ideas? I don't know immunology very much. I don't have hypermobile joints (no Ehler's Danlos) or high cortisol (no Cushing's syndrome). I am normal weight, normal blood pressure. There are so many smart people on this site. Please let me know what you think. Anyone heard of people with similiar symptoms? I can only think that my skin and my adrenals are hypersensitive to cortisol. Please help!Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
