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

Could i be pregnant. I had my last depo shot on the 3rd of March. Symptoms is period like pain, tender breasts, abdomen feels heavy but no period yet?

Yes: Depo-Provera is intended to be used/given/taken every 3 months to be effective as birth control. Your March 3rd injection would have run out around July 3rd (actually you get a few days leeway). So if you've engaged in unprotected sex since then, you could now be pregnant. Best way to find out if you're pregnant is to take home pregnancy test, which is readily available at most pharmacies. ...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
