  3. Well, still waiting on the doc to get back to me on the topic. I asked him for some research or case studies about receptors... still no answer...
  4. The bad thing is that they come and go so fast since they are residents. He will only be there for a year and we only get 2 to 4 appointments a year with them. I don't go back till Feb. but I am going to email him as soon as the website is back up. I hope he can help me get more info on this. I told my husband that I wonder what my PCP would say if I told him this.. prob that he this other doc has no clue what he is talking about. No... my PCP probably wouldn't even believe me. He doesn't believe a word that comes out of my mouth anyway, he would prob think I was making it up.
  5. I doubt that. He said he would love to but can't help me because he can't refer me. He's just a resident. Go figure. But maybe I can take this information and us it some how. Of course the school's website is down the past 3 days and I can't get his email address.
  6. Ok.. I went to my Psyciatrist (sp) the other day.. were I see a counselor at my school we are required to the the Doc ever so often. Anyway, it was amazing. I had never seen this doc before but he kept looking at me funny while we were talking, then he was like "Can I feel your legs and neck?" I was like "OK"? Then he sat back and was like "Have you ever been tested for something called Cushing's"? OMG.... I just looked at him and was like.. "If you only knew". I told him a little bit about my ordeal and you could tell he was kinda interested. He said that he saw some people with Cushing's while in med school and that they had made a wild discovery. He said that they found that some patients whose Cushing's tests all come back normal are false negative tests. He said that they have way too many cortisol receptors that take up the extra cortisol. He said that is why all of the tests come back normal, that there is actually way too much cortisol being produced but the extra receptors make the tests all come back normal. Has anyone else heard this??? I think I may ask him where I can find the research about that.
  7. I plan on doing my master's degree research on Endocrine Disruptors.. if it gets approved. I guess I'll get back to you guys in a couple of years on that. LOL
  8. I have free access, my college didn't have it. I had to request it from another library though so it will be a few days before I can get a copy of it.
  9. Thanks for that link. Do you know much about the author? I thought about sending him an email. I noticed that he works for the VA. I am a veteran. I was in the Army for 10 years and really enjoyed it. I had to get out because all of my symptoms started after I had my son (difficult pregnancy, HELLP and Pre-eclampsia). I couldn't do the work that the the Army required, so when my enlistment was up, I reluctantly got out. SInce then I have had the same trouble that everyone on here seems to have with finding the right doctor. Do you think it would be worth it to send him an email an see what he has to say, since I have veterans benefits? Thanks
  10. I WISH doctors would listen to us. Everytime I start talking to them like I know anything about Cushing's their eyes glaze over and they put up a huge wall... then get pissed off. What are we supposed to do, sit back and just listen when we know they are wrong??? UUGGGG
  11. That is so weird. People make fun of me all of the time cause one of my ears gets so red.. even purple sometimes.
  12. http://www.goodhormonehealth.com/symptoms/testosterone.pdf There is the link to this article. I am taking to my Doc on Tuesday, along with lots of other paperwork. I also posted it in my "uuhhh.... bedroom question" topic because several people have said that I need my Testosterone tested. I thought this was a good article.
  13. I just had my blood work and UFC back and he said... well.. it LOOKS normal... Also said one test is good to rule out that anything is wrong. I was looking for some research or articles to show that sometimes it takes years to get diagnosed and that its not as easy as they are trying to make it out to be. Something to show that ONE test is not enough and that it is a complicated process.
