The pituitary gland

I was diagnosed 2012 and had pituitary surgery done 2013. I am currently on medications.

I’m curious to talk with other Cushings patients. I don’t know anyone with the disease and have actually never even had a conversation with someone with cushings. It would be nice to relate with someone.

Nicola C (Nikkikicks), Undiagnosed Bio

Leave a comment

 

Hi 🙂 my name is Nicola and I’ve been sick since October of 2017.

I kept gaining weight around my face and lower belly despite not eating due to a horrible flu and sinus infection type sickness where I hardly ate for 2 months.

My doctor gave me anti depression meds, sleep apnea tests, hiv test and told me that I was just not active or eating healthy enough. I swore I had pneumonia as I could hardly stay awake and was so so weak. I had a car accident in 7/17 and so I had prednisone and that is when my symptoms started.

I have also been on hydrocortisone trigger point and epidural injections since then and kept feeling worse and worse.

I am trying to cope with constant sinus infections and still juggle work and my family.

I am 40 lbs heavier and I choose between working out, cooking healthy or functioning at work. The cold Colorado weather is like stabbing me with a million tiny  knives.

My family thinks I’m being dramatic and my boyfriend thinks that I can still work out 4-6 days a week as I did before my car accident.

At this point I’m trying not to cry or mourn the loss of my healthy lifestyle- I’m literally fighting for my life.

I’m just going to get my official diagnosis and then do all I can to recover.

God bless everyone and I pray that we get better super fast.

My cushing Dr has been a bit abrasive with me. But I will keep you posted.
