Hi sb. You are right about Cushing's Syndrome. After all my cortisol tests were found to be abnormal, I was given a sort of ad hoc diagnosis of "Depression with Endocrine Features". From what I have learned, severe depression always has "endocrine features". It's just that they aren't usually looked for.

I'm glad to tell you where I went: to Dr. Mark Hutto in Atlanta. He and Dr. Steven Best, near Chicago, are the only two experienced, recomended psychiatrists who use TMS "off-label"in the US. If you are interested in looking into TMS, you could consider the studies currently being carried out by Neuronetics. They have manufactured a TMS device, and it is currently being tested by psychiatrists in 14 centers across the states. It sounds nearly identical to the TMS I had, except that the device is of a slightly newer design. By carrying out such a large study, they hope to get FDA approval fairly quickly. One important consideration- it's free! They have a website if you are interested.
