❓Can You Help? Normal Test Results

From the Message Boards:

My GP has suspected Cushings for a while now. I have the extreme fatigue, muscle weakness, round face, facial flushing, Buffalo hump, weight gain right in midsection – all the alleged tale-tell signs. However, I’ve had to urine tests and one blood test and they are always normal.

I’m seeing a third endo now and she agrees with my GP and plans to do another series of blood tests.

I guess my question is has anyone else out there ever had initial normal cortisol test results only to later find out it’s Cushings?

Please comment here and I will get your answers to Lizzy or on the boards directly.

 

Thanks!
