Andrea's Story

I am currently being tested for cyclical cushings I have a test coming up this Friday and I hope I finally get an answer after a year of testing.

For the past year I have been back and forth to my endocrinologist and she has had me do so many 24 hour urine tests that I don't think I can every go to the bathroom without a cap and bottle again. I have also had the dex suppresion test 3 times in the past year. Every test comes back high or borderline.

I finally refused another urine test , so this Friday I have to go and have a 90 min. test done, this will be after I take a steroid for two days. I hope that this finally gives me the answers I am looking for. I don't think I can take this not knowing much longer. This is the most frustrating thing I have ever gone through.

I am glad I found this site.
