  11. Hump at back of neck

    Hi, Amy - I had most of the same symptoms as you but I was always "chunky". I thought I was pregnant when I noticed my first symptom - loss of my periods. Even though I was faithfully working out most days at my gym and was on track with my foods with Weight Watchers, I gained weight. And tired/exhaustion/fatigue was with me daily. It took about 5 years for a diagnosis. My whole bio is here (although it needs an update): https://cushingsbios.com/2013/04/29/maryo-pituitary-bio/ Why not join these boards so you can read everything we've written about the symptoms you're experiencing now? Best of luck to you!
  12. Hump at back of neck

    Hi my name is Amy and I have had this weird looking hump at the back of my neck since my late teens and I was a size 9 6 months later im twenty and I went to a size 11 I figured ok I’m still growing and also figured it could have been water weight from the birth control of was taking back then and I continued to take this birth control for years until 2005 as I gained more I figured I stop and the water weight would subside but I was wrong as the years went by i kept gaining but staying at the same weight for a decade and it would increase it was now 2007 this was when I knew something was really wrong I was massively gaining weight in my mid section I thought I was pregnant but I wasn’t my stomach just kept increasing in since and I didn’t do anything different to my diet , I just couldn’t understand why and the aches and pains my body has on a constant basis is really hard it’s almost unbearable at times. And the tiredness I feel after a work day is rough and I just stay in bed after cause I’m in soo much pain. Any how from what I heard not every one who has cushings suffer from same symptoms and if this is true who else has felt the same thing as I have . And how long did it take to get a diagnosis

Join Dr. Friedman for a webinar informing the Cushing's and Addison's community on the newly available Peak Biometric Research Stress Management System that offers a quick, private, and non-invasive way to measure cortisol levels —without the hassle and expense of sending samples to a lab. Dr. Friedman will go over how to order and use the POC salivary cortisol monitor. He will explain that the product is not FDA-approved for diagnostic purposes and how to use it with commercial salivary testing. There will be plenty of time for questions and discussion.

  25. The problem with Addison's disease is that only 1 out of 100,000 people get this.  Lisa's symptoms were classic, vitilago which are white spots, darkened pigment, and flu like symptoms.  Even in this day and age doctors can miss a case of Addison's.

      Hi Shaw .. I am very happy to say I got 24 hour cortisol back results are elevated and I have an appointement with an endo who specialises in cushings in montreal for the 23rd .. I am so happy .. I just feel so sick these days ..this is realy my last hope .. I cant take this much longer .. I went from working 10 to 12 hours a day 7 days a week to being in a wheelchair after back surgery an doing nothing for the past 7 years .. The last year has been hell muscle weakness and very lethargic ... I hope this hole ordeal will be over soon .

      Having a high 24 hour cortisol is the best news for testing. For most people it's the hardest test to come back high but for me my other tests were normal except my urine test. I did many 24 hour cortisol tests and all were elevated so they really helped me get to surgery. The muscle weakness is the worst part, I used to tell my doctors it feels I'm trying to walk in wet clothes. The muscle weakness was the first and quickest thing that improved for me so here's hoping you can move along to treatment soon!
