Hi all, I am writing here as I don't know where else to turn as yet another doctor dismissed me this morning as being fat and lazy and told me to get a job!!! The worst of it was my husband had gone with me to see him as we are sick of getting nowhere. He has agreed to to a cushings test next week in the surgery but I am sceptical as I thought it had to be done by an endocrinologist and determined by a certain test? He is going to do a blood test at an appointement in the surgery at 8 a.m after fasting and then give me another at 10am after giving me a drink after the 8a.m blood test.
Is this a good test to take? Will it give a true result? I only ask as for the last 2 years I have been ill enough to be unable to return to work to a job I did actually without a doubt love!! I'm sure they think I just can't be bothered getting off my lazy fat behind and working!
I also am very angry as he said they did a cushings test in Oct '06, I know for a FACT that I had no such test. I did get blood tests but not the test they are about to do even though he says it has been done, I'm confused, tired and am for giving up and lying down to what I believe to be the cause of my problems. I don't WANT to have this but I do believe I have it, just wish my doctor would. I KNOW it is rare!! But someone has to have it!! Rant over - sorry, please could someone reply to my blood test questions and with any advice you may have as to getting through to the doctors! Thanks in advance
