me again!

Hi All

Me again, coming in for yet another rant! 

Still really suffering with stomach problems, anything I eat now no matter how little is causing me pain (although I have found yoghurt is ok). I get instant wind/cramps and Its becoming so painful and annoying! 

I have taken BUSCOPAN, Tums and any other form to help with "IBS" relating drugs. I have googled so much into Cushing Disease with relation to stomach cramps and doesn't seem to be that common as I haven't found much if anything! 

Like I've said before I'm currently in training for work so I don't have time to be going to doctors or even be in hospital hence why I have left it! 

I am still waiting to be seen by the surgeon and Genetics team, its only been a few days but seems like forever when your in pain and miserable, I've failed 2 off my constable exams and I seem to have the weight of the world on my shoulders! Fighting the depression, fatigue and weight gain alongside stomach pains and everything else us "cushiers" experience is too much alongside the stress of work!

    I feel your pain. I don’t work as too sick but do have two kids and a single mum & know how hard it is being ill all the time. I have Crohn’s disease as well so can sympathise with the tummy issues. I’m currently in bed with hot water bottle as tummy is really bad tonight 😞 Drs have diagnosed me with diabetes & put me on metformin which has aggravated my tummy even more so.. Its never ending. I hope you get some answers soon & start to feel better & can continue with your exams xxx

    It is possible

    You are having gallbladder issues,

    I had this for almost 2 years now

    And am now dealing with Cushing

    They are related to a tumor

    When I am having a gallbladder attack

    Which you are describing

    The best thing to do is call an ambulance

    And hope they give you about 5mg of morphine

    But you need a doctor for this

    Sorry. One more thing

    Avoid high saturated fast like

    Cheese and steak

    And even cream in your coffee

    You will be less likely to

    Have a gallblader attack

    Good luck
