Kathy A's Story

Ten years ago I was diagnosed with fibromalgia. I had pain in all four quadrants, but my main complaint was extreme fatigue and mood difficulties (anxiety and depression).

My symptoms got worse over the years and in the last five I had acne, abnormal hair growth, painful swelling, facial changes, foot and hand growth and weight gain, even when dieting.

I was diagnosed with acromegaly in November 2003.

I had transphenoidal surgery in late January 2004. I am still on prednisone and on a roller-coaster of recovery.
