I am a 21 year old female and have had a lot of odd symptoms for over a year. My last period was in October, but I am not sexually active so I know that I can't be pregnant. I always had regular periods beforehand, so I'm not sure what's going on. Also, I've been steadily gaining weight in my abdominal region for no reason. I am naturally pear-shaped, so this is extremely odd to me. My face looks puffier than normal, I have terrible anxiety, am exhausted, have vertigo, and haven't been sleeping well. I know that PCOS can be a cause of the period issues, but I dont have excess hair or any signs of having high androgens. Do you think this is Cushing's? Or PCOS? Am I overreacting? I feel awful, but I feel like doctor's are going to blow me off, saying that I just need to exercise more. I go on hour walks everyday and try to eat as little as possible so I don't think my diet is an issue. Thanks for any input!
