Hello, My name is Sarah. I am currently researching and undergoing test related to Cushing’s. I am turning 30 this year and have decided I have ignored my body long enough.
I was diagnosed with 2 pituitary tumors at the age of 15. At that time I was having horrible headaches, neasea on a regular bases, balance issues, gained 80 pounds in 4 months, and some crazy stretch marks.
The last time I saw a doctor for the issue was when I was 18 because they could not figure out how to treat me. Since then I have gained 240 lbs., have hypothyroidism, have had 6 carpel tunnel surgeries, and have issues with blood sugar levels. I am a large woman but do not eat like one…. I swear. My husband and I are doing a diet diary to take to the pituitary center with us. Sounds crazy I know, all I have ever heard is that I control my weight , so stop eating.
I saw a TV special about Cushing’s and my husband and I both agree that is me. The woman that they featured , my body is shaped just like hers. I hope that I can find a dr. that will listen to me.
