i am a 32 year old female who is suffering very badly with lots of symptoms and i am stuggling to find a diagnosis of anything!!
When i was 15 i was diagnsed with pcos, so it follows suit that i will hve weight issues and be a hairy mary! But now for the last 3/4 years i have had a massive problem with leg and arm weakness. I also have a large buffaloo hump. I am currently signed off work as i am so week in my arm and leg. I have been seen by neorologist who says its not ms etc. my symptoms are below;
Facial hair (i shave every morning like a man)
body hair (everywhere!!)
buffaloo hump (painfull)
leg and arm weakness
tired all the time
feeling low in my mood
panicky about being seen looking like this
i have alot of weight around my middle, neck and face
If i have a spot or cut the red mark doesnt go away. i have small scars all over me.
I sweat like crazy
I have big stretch marks on my belly.
One of my ankles and one hand swells
I went to the drs with these symptoms about 3 years ago and i said someone had mentioned cushings and she dismissed it saying it wouldnt presnt this way?! she had my neck fat ultra sounded and it was just fatty tissue. Now my gp says on a bloodtest they ran that i am showing signs of having a under active thyroid.
Am i crazy or do all these symptoms sound like cushings?
Please dont think i am desperate to have something wrong with me.....i am not one of them. I have just got to the point now where want a diagnosis before i loose my job and my house form being off sick!!
Any advice would be great!
Thanks in advance
