I am 36 years old and have had symptoms since I was 19 or 20.
I have had rapid weight gain, stretch marks, fatigue, hair growth on my face, moon face, infertility, high blood pressure, have a lump on my lower back, anxiety and depression.
When I had my first appendectomy in July of 2010, my potassium was low. I didn't think anything of it at the time. I recently started on blood pressure medicine and they ran my potassium levels which came back low. My doctor thinks it is the medicine, but I am not so sure. I researched low potassium and Cushing's was one of the results. As I read I thought "That is me!".
I have scheduled an appointment with my primary care doc and am hoping he will test me. I am so thankful I found this site!!!
