Hi my name is Christine. I am 52 yrs old and under going the first stages of the diagnosis of Cushings Syndrome
My diagnosis started back in Septmeber 2008 but unfortunatly I still don’t have a final diagnosis almost a year on.
I am at my wits end with frustration and feeling really poorly right now and know were to ask questions.
I have just returned home from a 5day stay in hospital for a midnight cortisone test. I left more frustrated than ever as the tests all went so very wrong and I may have to return and start all over again.
Can you help by answering this question…..when asleep and blood is taken at midnight……do I have to be in a deep sleep state for a result. Obviously I keep waking up and my Consultant insists I must remain in deep state sleep to confirm a diagnosis.
Please can someone help.
