I understand why...: ...your doctor referred u to an endocrinologist. Many of your symptoms are consistent with Cushing Disease caused by overproduction of ACTH in the pituitary gland. But your low normal ACTH & normal DST suggest otherwise. Cushing's syndrome can also be caused by prolonged use of corticosteroids or a primary tumor of the adrenal gland, A good endocrinologist can figure this out! Best wishes! ...Read more

My lower left abdomen feels bruised. Is this a symptom of early pregnancy? Also I usually have 7 day periods. Then suddenly had a 2 day one.

My adivse is to: Get a home pregnancy test and go from there. You sound like you could be pregnant assuming your sexually active, which I assume you are or wouldn't be asking :-) If your worried about family and friends, share with those you trust. If you are pregnant, it's important ot have support people in place. Best to you and be well ! ...Read more

Constant nausea, abdominal pain (upper and lower), loose stools, fatigue, hot flashes and dizziness, emotional, flu-like symptoms and tender breasts!?

Carcinoid Tumors: Carcinoid tumors that can be found in small intestine or in the chest, could cause similar symptoms. Sometimes they may cause hypotension too that cause "dizziness". See an endocrinologist for a complete history ; physical exam as well as hormonal work up. "endometriosis"; "irritable bowel syndrome (ibs)"; "psychsomatic disorders" ; "panic attacks" need to be ruled out also. ...Read more

What do my symptoms sound like?hip pain,lower abdominal pain both sides, headache,painless bruising,fatigue, clear urine,backpain.Bloodtest was normal

Multiple causes: No single illness will explain these. If physical exam and labs are normal, look to a functional cause. Headache can be due to something as trivial as needing eyeglasses. "Clear urine" is not an illness. Look at your entire life situation, including sleep patterns and what difficult interpersonal situations may exist your physician could perhaps help with. Best wishes. ...Read more
