Hi all. Last August 2017, i had a hysterectomy with ovaries conserved. i immediately began to lose weight afterwards. Since that time i have lost 68 pounds without trying. February of this year i had a severe anaphylatic reaction to peppermint which triggered underlying asthma we did not know i had. i was put on lots pf steroids and given BREO 200 a day. Pulmonary functioning initially improved but then began to drop significantly. Meanwhile Im battling severe depression and anxiety that i already have and am on medication for but is getting worse, irritiability, complete loss of libido, extreme fatigue, body and muscle aches and some memory problems. i saw my PCP, he did labs and AM cortisol, prolactin and testosterone came back abnormal. then referred to endo. Endo did more labs. AM cortisol off again and DHEA abnormal. Sent for ACTH stim testing after having to come off steroids for asthma treatment for 2 weeks. All results were within normal limits. I follow up up with endo in two weeks to find out whats next. im having MRI brain this week because he wants to check my pituitary gland as i also have intracranial hypertension. Ive done alot od research bit quite frankly there isnt alot out there. Im thinking finding real peoples expierences might be my best option. i want to go into my dr appointment prepared to fight for myself because i KNOW something is wrong with me. ANY advise anyone can give i would be so greatful for. Im a nurse so this makes it even more frustrating that I cant figure more out!
