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.”
