Annette's Story...

Hello...I'm 43. And I believe with every fiber of my being I have Cushings!

The symptoms and the pictures are ME!!! From the buffalo hump, facial hair (If I don't shave everyday my beard is as thick as my husbands), the rounded face, feet that I can't stand on they hurt so bad!! The list goes on and on!! When I see the Pictures I see my body!!!

Please can someone, anyone help me? How do I go about getting tested? Can you die from this? (Other than from embrassment) "Eat less sweets..." You need to get up off the couch and excerise..." They say....Doctors have even! You need to lose weight. And when I don't lose an oz. they say " your not working on this..." But they can't explain why I don't gain!! I have weighed the same (give or take 1 or 2 lbs only ) for the last 7 years!! 285lbs.

Thank you for listening. Please if anyone reads this please contact me and tell me how to fix this. Thank you!
