I have been feeling really ill for 3 years now. I am unable to work full time and cannot get out of bed in the mornings. I have hashimotos and have been on 150mg of levothyroxine for 3 years now with no improvement on symptoms. I was sent to the Uk for a heart study because i had arrhythmia and high heart rate. They suspect an extra electrical pathway but my heart rate if horrible.
Does anyone think i may have cushings ? Im worried because my auntie had adrenal tumours and she produced cortisol. She ended up obese and with a bad case of diabetes she died from her high cortisol levels a few years ago...... the doc says im just sensitive to stres....
ive seen a physcologist and she said nothing was wrong with me mentally and i was given the all clear....
nobody seems to know whats wrong with me but i am only 25 years old and i cannot function like a normal person anymore
