  1. Hello Erin, welcome to the boards, you are in the right place to get the answers that you need. you sound like you need a full endocrine work up: thyroid- tsh, free t4, free t3, Anti-TPO and Anti-TG, parathyroid - PTH levels, growth hormone - igf-1 levels, Adrenal - aldosterone, serum cortisol, epinephrine & norepinephrine, 24 hour urinary free cortisol, 24 hour urine metanephrines sex hormones- estrogen, testosterone, progesterone, dheas, pituitary hormones - acth, FSH, LH, prolactin You need a good endocrinologist to check for any disorders such as- hypopituitarism, graves disease, pheochromocytoma, hashimoto's thyroiditis, growth hormone deficiency, late onset congenital adrenal hyperplasia, multiple endocrine neoplasia, or cushing's disease. I truly hope that a doctor will identify & cure your symptoms, good luck & God bless
  2. (((hugs))) I've heard that it gets better, it can take up to a year for aches and pains to lessen. Aches are a good sign that you are cured...... I hope you feel better, Good luck & God bless.
  3. :( (((hugs)) Lydia I am praying that the doctors will stop being stupid & lazy and help you
  4. I am a pharmacist and I have always suspected this but never heard a doctor in managed care admit to it. So awful but true

  6. Wow interesting. I'd be afraid to test with my luck, My telomeres are probably as short as an 80 year olds ......
  7. Tanya Buffalo, NY. Pituitary surgery #1 - February 2010, currently seeking re-diagnosis
  8. I like the new Avatar pic, You look amazing!

  9. http://jcem.endojournals.org/cgi/content/full/86/8/3568 This article is about a patient who was taking 2000mg of mifepristone! He was still able to be treated for AI with a dexamethasone bolus. Maybe it might be a viable treatment option...........
  10. It sounds like it could help in diagnosing pituitary cushing's as other patient's don't get AI from mifepristone: http://www.eje-online.org/cgi/content/full/157/5/561#TBL1 I just wonder what the side effects from long-term use of this drug will be. It sounds great at first, but in the long run......
  11. Oh my God, that is so sad. Health care is so AWFUL across the globe........................
  12. Yes the interviews are through the computer and you must have speakers, sorry............
  13. At least the article didn't site that darn useless dex suppression test!
