Does anyone out there have Cushing's disease? I went to an endocronologist yesterday for my lack of losing weight. I brought him a food diary/bathroom journal and he can not explain with as little as I am eating and as much as I frequent the bathroom why I am not losing weight - let alone gaining. I have to take Ritalin everyday just so I can stay awake at work and while driving and I know it is a vicious cycle - you get scared to eat - you end up in the bathroom - you end up with no energy, etc. He is having me do some tests to see if I may have Cushing's disease. I looked up some of the symptoms and alot of them I have - but then again I have a lot of symptoms of a lot of things. I feel like if you have Crohn's you are doomed to have so many other things wrong with you. Part of me wants him to find something, but the other part of me doesn't want to feel like a "freak" the rest of my life with all these conditions.
