About 2 and a half to 3 yrs ago, i was being treated for a condition called Reflex Sympathetic distrophy.
While they were treating me, they were injecting me with steriods. And from that symptoms started showing up that had nothing to do with my rsd condition like; the red moon face, the obesity, the irregular periods, and the striae marks.
Due to the VA ruining all the tests they did, about 6 months later i was rushed to the hospital near death, when the doctors at the hospital did the tests they discovered that i had cushing’s syndrome and that i was lucky to be alive.
I am now cured of cushing’s however i still the striae marks all over my body and am still somewhat fat. I am afraid i could get sick again and am very self concious about my body.
