For the past year I have had consistently high blood pressure results which I have said is not normal for me. I'm now on 3 lots of tablets for it but it still doesn't come down. The a couple of months a go two consultants thought that my face looked as though I had Cushings (fat, round face).
Both arranged blood tests where the more comprehensive one showed that this could be true.
So more tests have got to be arranged, an appt came through for one is 6 weeks time - an urgent one!!!
It's also the day we are due to go to Israel for 10 days.
I know I have a small pituitary lump which could be causing the problems which also include easy bruising; tiredness; muscle weakness, headaches - I tick all the boxes but then I have RA as well so how much is confusing the symptoms of each!!?!!
I'm struggling walking due to the muscle weakness which I have been blaming on my knee replacement of 11 months a go - although I walked better & further just after it than I do now! Also my foot is giving me real problems with my 2nd toe curling up & being very painful.
I'm still waiting to start biologics as well.
I just want everything to get sorted, I need to know what's happening so I can work out if we can go to Israel of not. At the moment I don't think I can walk far enough to justify it, it's costing a lot of money so I want to be able to get the most of out of it which I don't think I will at the moment. Also got to prove to the insurance company that we do have ground to cancel on ill health!
Sorry it's a long post!
