Myxoedema or cushings??Hi. I'm new to here and you all seem very supportive. My daughter is having such a tough time with all over body swelling (almost 5 yrs ago and very sudden gain of 90 lbs) she is also extremely weak and fatigued which comes and goes in cycles leaving her bedridden for weeks. Her face swells up and gets red. She has head and eyebrow hair loss and her skin is very firm. Her tummy gets very swollen under her diaphragm. She is convinced she has cushings but tests are negative. She is type 1 diabetic and also coeliac and has MS (a lot to deal with) hashimotos is closely linked to her conditions. GP will only test TSH which is within normal range. I think she should be having antibodies done. What do you all think? She does appear to have the signs of myxoedema apart from cold intolerance (quite the reverse). Any advice much appreciated
