Can I ask how many of you had all the symptoms of Cushing's? I've been unwell for 2 years and after an adrenal adenoma was found over a year ago I have gone up 4 dress sizes. The operation to remove the adrenal gland was already in the pipeline but after having swelling in my legs recentIy, I got onto my consultant and made such a noise that I got to see him urgently and after having read up on this condition I suggested it to him. I am finally getting the correct tests done but initially they poo pooed the idea because I don't have all of the symptoms. I have massive weight gain that continues despite me not eating much at all, sores or bites that never heal, fatigue which means that some days I cannot get out of bed and pain in my side (where the adrenal adenoma is) and across my back. I am so close to this being diagnosed but I can tell you it has nearly destroyed me. Mentally and physically I am an empty shell. After reading your messages, I finally have hope that one day, very soon, I will be back to my old self. The one who was a size 12 and at the gym or running most days, and more importantly, able to do normal everyday things, including getting dressed and being able to put on my own socks without struggling.
I would be so interest to hear what symptoms everyone had and anything else you think would be helpful.
