Amanda K's Story...

I am 16 years old, I have been sick since December with a fever that won't break, muscle weakness, body swelling, and other symptoms.

I have been back and forth to my primary doctor, he couldn't figure anything out. He sent me to an internal doctor -still no help. I continued to get worse. My doctor thought maybe I had lupus so I go to a rheumatologist, still no diagnosis. The specialist later on came up with Cushing's. He had my primary doctor check for it and it came back positive and now I am off to a Cushing's and pituitary specialist.
