    Please help!!

    I received my dictation from Doctor F.. I pray that I am on the road to a diagnosis. I don’t know how much more of this I can take.

    This Endo doesn’t believe in cyclical Cushings. How high does your salivary cortisol have to be to be considered diagnosable? My last tests were .99. & 1.69 The range is .09-.90. If Dr F can’t help me, I don’t want to live anymore. I can’t spend my whole life sleeping and suffering. I’m literally watching my life pass me by.

    Thank you Shaw. The endo walked in the room, introduced himself, took a good look at me and my pictures and asked me if I had ever heard of Cushings? He told me that I was in good hands and that he would set me up with a great neurosurgeon. The tears just rolled down my face. I just want my life back! I promise never to take life for granted again.

    I Went to my Endo appt yesterday (prepared) I had a list of all of my symptoms and a few photos of me to show the dramatic changes that my body has gone through over a short period of time. Without my prompting, He is sure that I have Cushings. Now, to prove it. I Walked away with a long list of labs to do, including...blood, urine, and saliva. Although I already knew in my heart that this is what I had, it was still very hard to hear. I know this is not gonna be an easy road to travel and I would be lying if I said I wasn’t scared. (I’m terrified) I had a hysterectomy 4 years ago and ended up with sepsis, e-coli, c-diff, just to name a few. It nearly ended my life. I’ll keep you guys updated when I know more. Thanks to everyone that has helped me along the way and to those that will continue to do so.

    My family Doctor said she doesn’t see a hump on my back. Is it just me that sees it?
