I have numerous symptoms of Chushing's Syndrome (weight gain, unatural rounded face, hump in back of neck, hair loss, bone deterioration, night sweats, etc.). However, I was recently tested by my doctor and she said that all my blood tests were normal (except my blood suger was elevated) and that my 24 hr. urine test was normal. I should be happy that my tests were normal, but I know that something is wrong with me. All you have to do is look at me to see that I do not look normal. Should I be re-tested or do these symptoms denote something else? I trust my physician, but feel that perhaps the tests were inaccurate. Does this sound familiar to anyone else? Should I be re-tested? Please help.:confused:
