Possible Cushing Disease

Please help me:

I was identified a while back having an iron deficiency. My gyneacoligist couldn't find anything wrong. I am currently on Depo - contraceptive injection, and does not experience any menstruation. Me and my fiancee eat the same diet and his iron is fine.

I had glandular fever - 3 times - about 18 months ago.Although I am using iron tablets, i still feel very tired. I do moderate exercise about 3 times a week and try to walk whenever I can - except when I am to tired, which is most of the time.

Over the past 3 -5 months I have picked up weight mainly on my tummy area, and did not lose any, although I had a very stressfull time in my life.

Could you help me please?
