Natalie's Story

My name is Natalie and I am 25 y/o. I have been happily married to an amazing man for 3 years. Below is a tid-bit of my story...

I am being worked up for Cyclical Cushing's. I have had Cushing's symptoms for the last 10 years and just in the last 3 years I've been testing for Cushings. I have seen countless dr's and done what feels like a million tests...but nothing has been officially diagnosed yet. The dr's are "highly suspicious" that i have cushings and they say that there really isn't anything else it could be.

I have Hashimoto's, uncontrollable weight gain, central obesity, fatigue, hair loss, 8 mm microadenoma on my pituitary MRI, edema, dry skin, buffalo hump, stretch marks, red round face, acne...and the list goes on.

I am hopeful for answers soon and I am praying for a miracle.

Thank you to all who have contributed to this website. I am so glad that you all know what it's like.

Blessings, natalie
