  1. As it turns out, I surpress. So, I've asked her to run some other tests, though I highly doubt that she will.
  2. I don't know if all doctors check for it. They actually have to send it out to another lab and it takes nearly a week, while I should be finding out about my cortisol levels in the next couple of hours. No MRI or CT of anything. I highly doubt if any Endo with my HMO will do it if these come back "normal." So, the hope is that I find a job soon enough and can get enough money to go to a specialist.
  3. No, but I get a feeling that it's going to be very difficult to get any doctors under my insurance to test for anything else. It won't stop me from trying to find another doctor, but most of the doctor's I can get with my HMO aren't much help.
  4. Thanks. Took another blood test this morning after taking 3 mg of Dex, so we'll see.
  5. Since the level of dex in my blood was below 180, which is the cut off. She's having me do a 3 mg DST, and so I'll get tested again tomorrow. It's interesting because I've never actually met her in person! I was referred to her (my second endo in the last month) for thyroid issues, which she dismissed. However, in her email she suggested getting tested for Cushing's. It's 1 am and I'm not even close to being asleep (as always), so I'm doing a ton of reading!
