The Voices of Acromegaly: Acromegaly Symptoms

Acromegaly Support interviews these acromegaly patients about living with the symptoms of acromegaly.

“You do not have to look like Andre the Giant in order to have this condition.”

“What a good day for me with acromegaly would be is having maybe just one headache, no sweating, no memory issues.”

“You know I feel terrible. I lose focus, or I forget.”

“My teeth were separating and it looked like I had a tooth missing. I never smiled.”

“I get tired pretty easily, and I’ve had to learn to say no.”

“Being so tired that I thought that I was going to collapse.”

“If something doesn’t feel good, make sure that you tell them that. Don’t let them tell you that’s normal because nothing’s normal.”
