So, I’m in the process of being tested for Cushings. I have to have an MRI and CT scan pending bloodwork results for the contrast dye. My endocrinologist said I keep failing my cortisol tests. In other words something is always elevated.
For me my journey began a few years back when I was working out like crazy doing cross training and kickboxing 4 days a week and bike riding and taking long walks, I was also dieting. I kept gaining weight. I started needing maternity clothes. I had the hump already for a few years but was previously able to lose weight.
I assumed oin was menopause but nothing I did worked. The Drs did bloodwork which was all fine. I started having hot flashes do they put me on HRT which actually caused me to drop 5 lbs. Now I know something is off.
It took my BP shooting up suddenly along with my A1C reaching prediabetic range for the Drs to believe there really was something going on.
So here I am, I started my testing in June and now it’s Sept. Still no official diagnosis. I’m very tired and depressed. I don’t go out because I don’t want to see anyone. I can only wear stretchy pants and have a hard time finding long enough shirts.
I don’t recognize myself anymore. *sigh*
