The fear in waiting.

I just had an #Endocrinologist appointment that ended with bloodwork. Now I'm in that dreaded stage of waiting. I may have had every single symptom that checked the boxes for an endocrine problem, specifically #CushingsSyndrome , but you know... that's happened before. As someone who has spent their entire teen and current adult life suffering through doctors and their tests, most of them coming back negative, I'm used to this. But this time...I really need to have an answer. An answer with a solution, no more incurable diseases. If its Cushing's, which I hope it is, I'll just get the snip of a benign tumor and return to my typical homeostatic state of #EhlersDanlosSyndrome . I really just need some support during this time, and good vibes I have solid answers instead of "rule outs." #ChronicIllness #ChronicPain #Asthma #HypermobileTypeEDS #IrritableBowelSyndromeIBS #AcidReflux #GastroesophagealRefluxDisease #BellsPalsy #Tachycardia #CheckInWithMe #Undiagnosed

Adrenal Glands? Hang in there!

Before I became Secondary Adrenal Insufficient, I hadn’t a clue on the role my adrenal glands played in my overall wellness. Now, I do. I had to learn this new lifestyle. Hang in there! 💕 What have you learned about your new lifestyle with whatever you had yo adjust through? #MightyTogether #AdrenalInsufficiency #Endocrinologist #AddisonsDisease #CheckInWithMe

Tested for #MCAS, but derm said results are not “clear.” Have you been diagnosed with #MastCellActivationDisorder without conclusive results?

I’ve been getting extremely bad/burning flushing since I was a kid and have had trouble with full body itching, dizziness, fainting etc. I was told by my primary it was stress, but decided to investigate with my dermatologist bc it occurs very randomly up to 3 times a day. After initial testing he decided to test me for #MastCellActivationDisorder, but the results didn’t come out “clear.” He referred me to an #Endocrinologist and said if I didn’t want to go that route he’d put on #Propranolol . Have you been diagnosed with mcas without conclusive results? Is an endocrinologist the way to go?

Any idea what to expect at a first appointment with a #Endocrinologist ?
