Hello good people. Bear with me. 🐻 So i think I maybe have Cushings. For 3 years now I have been feeling tired, with muscle and joint pain, fatigue.also diabetes insipidus ( I think, excessive thirst and urination) and excessive brusing on legs. My period stoped for a year or so after the pill. That's when I started looking for a couse. My doctor gave me metformin for my period wich helped as my period was back and regular. Also I noticed circulation problems. Have been reading a lot about Cushings and I have almost all sympoms except striae and I'm not entirely overweight but I gained 15kg in a few months. Also I think I have a small hump that is visible sometimes less sometimes more. My weigh is oscilating from time to time as are my symptoms. I asked my doctor about Cushings and he says that he doubts its Cushings as I'm not obese and don't have striae. I've been reading a lot about cyclical Cushings and I'm about to do 24h urine and supression test. I also have PCOS but mild. And hypothyoridism. Could you give me advice on when is the best time for testing. And if I have to stop taking metformin before doing those tests. Before, when testing cortisol in serum I usully went when feeling really bad and my cortisol was elevated but not enaugh for my doctor to call it anything other then stress. Thanks so much. Hope you understood this gibberish of mine. Excuse my English. Not a native speaker. 👌🤗
Do you want to keep the Cushing's Help message boards? Do you know that MaryO spends thousands out of her own pocket to keep it running? Do you want to wake up one day and find it gone? If the answer to the last one is "no", then take the time to donate what you can each month/quarter/year. I know I'm not here much anymore since my BLA, but I still care that others have this support. I would have never found a doctor to help me nor understood this disease if it hadn't been for this site. There are so many more out there who need them, too. If you are here, I suspect you do, too. If you look at the right side of the main page when you login, you will see the donation site and Donations: 801.61 USD || Goal Amount: 2906.00 USD. It shows we still need to donate at least $2104.39 for this year. So, skip that lunch out at McDonalds or Wendy's and donate the $5 or $6 dollars instead. PBJ will taste really good that day! If we all donate just a little bit every month, it will make a difference. Thank you, Robin
