Hi my name is Sara. I seem to have many symptoms of cushings, and locah. I havent been able to get a diagnosis. Here are my symptoms:
weight gain, 100 pounds in 4 years, 50 this last year
hair growth on upper lip, chest, and belly
depression
buffalo hump
purple straie
muscle weakness
no energy
confusion
memory loss
fatiuge
There are probably more I just cant remeber right now. I havent been able to work ofr almost a year now. I sleep alot, and I just cant function as a normal person. I don't eat very much. I hurt a lot, and many days I just cant get up and deal with my problems.
I have had a 24 hour urine cortisol test done and the doc said it came back normal.

PPPPPPPPPPPlease help me! :(

User avatar Hi!

Although I cannot be nearer a diagnosis without a clinical examination, a possible discussion with your doctor could include the PolyCystic Ovarian Disease. Have your cycles been normal?

Sara!

Wow talk about bringing back the memories; your symptoms sounded EXACTLY what i was like for months and months.

I had most of your symptoms and had had enough so i went to a female GP in the city whom diagnosed me with Polycyctic Ovarian Syndrome like Bill said..

Also i had many allergies and chronically low iron which led to how i was feeling..

It may not be convenient but i'd see your doctor..get an ultrasound and skin allergy tests..

I'd higly reccomend it, i never thought i'd feel good again but i do =)

Goodluck with it all,
Amy.
