Dina (Dina) Pituitary bio

Im 25 and was just diagnosed with Cushings..I like you had gone to the doctor over and over to have my thyroid tested among other things. I also have the symptoms of having facial flushing whicj I never knew was a symptom of anything.

I had gone to the dermotologist who just told me it was from the sun and tanning...It wasnt untiol a freind told me to go to a Endo also...after I filled out the symptom list the nurse took one look at me and said I think you may have Cushings SYndrome.. SHe was the first person ever to think I actually had a problem.

I have these horrible strech marks on my stomach that seemed to just come over night..That was her biggest clue. I also Have High blood pressure that developed around the same time. After an MRI, they found a tumor on my Putitaty gland and it over procuded cortisol production. After about a hundred blood test and a 24 hour urine collection..they confirmed the Cushings.

In summer I will have the tumor removed and hopefully my energy and weigth will go backt o normal.
