So apparently when i was 19 a routine blood test said i had hypothyroidism...then they said i had Hashimotos diease...then after two years of thyroid med. a different doctor said i didnt have thyroid problems. I am now 25 and looking back all of this seems to fall in to place. I turned 21 and constantly felt like my stomach was itchy. Very rapidly my stomach just ballooned up with big stretch marks that were very deep red, the shape of my face changed (which can be decieving when your growing into an adult), all the while my arms and legs have stayed slim. Looking back i can say my personality has changed, i used to be a competative swimmer, i can now sleep for 15 hours if im not working...i have thin skin, hair loss, and i bruise like a peach. Im not sure if i had always had anxiety because it seems like a lifestyle now.. but what brought me upon the possible diagnosis of Cushings was when i googled the words "thin arms and legs, pot belly, fat face" and then came across the buffalo hump. Mine may be small, but for the past four years i cant recall having much muscle control or movement in that area and the hump appeared along with the weird abnormal weight gain around the face... So im currently waiting on my endo. apt. to get here but i have attached some photos to get some input. Obviously the photo of the red stretchmarks are when it began when i was 21ish and the other photos are from this month im now 24..about to be 25. Id appreciate any input i can get. Im just extremely tired of explaining symtoms when they seem so common
