armymp Posted August 15, 2010 Report Share Posted August 15, 2010 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. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
