My 14 year old daughter has had symptoms for the past year or so, ever since she began menstruation. Her symptoms are: heavy prolonged menstruation, unexplained weight gain, extreme tiredness and fatigue and can barely get up in the mornings, cold hands and feet, tingling pins and needles sensation in legs and feet, constipation, brittle nails, thinning hair, anxiety, depression, extreme mood swings, anger, purple stretch marks on thighs, low blood sugar/hypoglycaemia, craving carbs, sugar and salt, etc. She has not been herself for a long time and we are desperately in need of answers. She has had tests for under active thyroid (blood and urine) and they have come back as normal. She is on a long waiting list to see a paediatric endocrinologist. It's so hard to get an appointment with our GP as they are so overstretched. Do you think I should demand answers sooner as if it is Cushings, it could be very dangerous couldn't it? Many thanks for your thoughts and opinions on this Sheryl x
