Susan's Story

I am waiting for a definite diagnosis. I have had symptoms for at least 15 years. I am a 47 year old female.

I have just had blood test results with high morning cortisol, very high CBG and low morning free cortisol. I have increased in upper body weight quite considerably over the last 15 years, have a round face and thick neck, have hypoglycemia, extreme fatigue, muscle weakness, depression etc.

My doctor says I have Cushing's and wants me to see the endocrinologist.

Could this be Cushing's??? I'm getting frustrated waiting to know, because I can't get an appointment before 12 November.
