Any ideas out there will help! I have been dealing with a body that is falling apart since the birth of my child. First it started with severe Proteinuria (protein in the urine) that finally lead to a very expensive kidney biopsy that showed Basement Membrane Disease which I was prescribed blood pressure meds even though I have normal blood pressure.
Then a year later came low white blood cell counts that lead to thought of possibly Leukemia. Tested for everything under the sun came back normal the only thing found from a stomach ultrasound was an enlarged spleen.
Now I still have the enlarged spleen and was told it's pushing on my rib cage so off to an Endroconoligist to get tested for Cushings Syndrome due to weight gain, round face, tiredness, redness in face, irregular menstrual cycles and the inability to get pregnant for a second time after 5 years of trying.
Any thought to what I could have wrong with me?

Thanks for your help.....:confused:
