New to the group and currently undergoing Cushing's testing after gaining 63kg over 5 years and having all the classic clinical presentations: buffalo hump, central obesity, stretch marks, fat pads above clavicle etc, in addition to incredible fatigue, insomnia, depression, moon face etc.
A recent chest xray for pneumonia showed 3-4cm adenomas and an angiomyolipoma on my left ovary, right kidney (on adrenal) and on the thyroid. I have a brain scan MRI tomorrow morning to check for pituitary tumour + also booked in for blood tests, dex test and 24 hr urine test.
Am wondering if anyone has experienced long term pain... or pressure causing pain... behind the bridge of the nose and between the eyes, with associated chronic headache? I've had one hanging around for months on end, along with ever increasing facial pain in that nose/eye region. Also a bit of pain at base of neck. Last night it was so painful that I woke up with moderate swelling of the skin around my eyes and petechiae patches either side of my nose. It's definitely not sinusitis... no congestion or runny nose etc... so was wondering if it could possibly be related to a pituitary tumour? Maybe a macroadenoma invading the nasal canal?
Any thoughts would be appreciated! Thank you!!!
