Cushings disease or...?

By Anonymous January 26, 2018 - 3:13pm

I've recently been tested for cushings disease: blood test and fasting blood test. Both came back fine. So the specialist has ruled out cushings. However, I do have quite a few of the symptoms (including weight gain, buffalo hump, headaches, bruising easily, difficulty sleeping, fatigue, anxiety, depression). If it's not cushings, what else could it be? I've been having tests for various things for 5 years now and still no closer to an answer. So frustrating and stressful :(

Hello. Thank you for reaching out to us.

I'm sure it must be frustrating. Some conditions and/or diseases are hard to diagnose and often, it's ruling things out that helps narrow it down. That does not make it any less stressful for sure! It sounds like your doctors are not giving up, so that's good.

Keep us updated.
