My story began in February 2015, or so I thought. I woke up one morning with my legs swollen again and it felt like my heart was racing. I made a doctor’s appointment that day. My blood pressure was out of control. My primary care doctor requested some blood work, and when my test results came back, I was able to review them online. There were a few test results that were either a little too high, or a little too low, but nothing significant. I did some research on my own and asked my doctor to request a test to check my cortisol level because I thought I had Cushing’s disease.
