Hello, I'm new here and am convinced I suffer with Cushing's syndrome/disease.
I went to the doctor's (UK), listed my symtoms and eventually the doctor gave in and said she'd have to research what tests actually need to be done in order to diagnose.
I rang to book an appointment and they said all that needs to be done is a cortisol blood test at 9am...I rang them back today and the receptionist said it came back as normal and no further action is required but I'm not convinced by that.
My research seems to show that there are quite a few tests and that often 2 tests are done in order to diagnose. I also thought that the blood test was done at 9am after a dose of Dexamethasone at midnight the previous evening. Am I correct or is this precedure normal? What are all of your experiences with diagnosis?
