I’m new and need help was created by apower47@juno.com

I have been having issues for years,and chalked it up to life. I am diabetic, have had my thyroid removed and possibly have polycythemia, hemaoglobin and hematocrit elevated. I was told by a grastoenterologist that I probably have Cushing. Went to my Endo he did the blood, urine and saliva tests they were borderline than negative, I am having the blood test done again. I have no skin on my legs they’re just spindles, my arms are the same, I have a hump on my back and midsection is huge, I was never like this yet here I am. I seem to get an influx of adrenaline in the least little activity, I am exhausted and think if this keeps up I’ll go insane. I desperately need help.
