I am a 32 year old female in Arkansas.
I have not yet been diagnosed with a disease but highly suspect I have Cushings. Over the past 3-4 years I have developed a Buffalo Hump, lost my libido, have drenching night sweats every night, fatigued during the day, tire easily when I excercise, my hair is thinning rapidly, suffer from periods of depression, bruise easily, heal slowly, and scar easily. I also have these little bumps on my arms and torso as well as stretch marks on my sides and upper thighs. I have never had a weight problem but the past couple of years I have gained 70+lbs and have had little luck losing weight and/or keeping it off.
Every time I go to the doctor they do a blood panel and always come back with the same answer “Everything is fine”. EVERYTHING IS NOT FINE!!!!!!!!
I recently was referred to a sleep doctor and during my appointment yesterday I told the doctor I feel like I might have Cushings and need to see an Endocrinologist. I finally got my referral and hope I am on the road to a diagnosis of some sort and an explanation for what is going on with me!
