    Possible Cushing's Syndrome

    Went to the doctor yesterday and he said he thinks I have Cushing's Disease.
    I've had alot of weight gain, weak, tired, I look 7 months pregnant, bruising,
    stretch marks, hair loss, high blood pressure, puffy face. and swolled legs with fluid retention. The only symptom I don't seem to have is the excessive hair and hump on the back.
    I'm going to be tested May 7, the doctor is waiting because he's trying to get
    my vasovagal sycope medication regulated. So, if you have Cushing's, tell me do you think I have it?

    People with Ai don't really know much about Cushing.

    Hiya Sunshine,

    I had Cushing's disease. I am completely cured now but it has been a very long and difficult road. Let me tell you that I did not have all of the symptoms such as the hiar growth or the hump. You don't have to exhibit all of the symptoms. It's very important you are tested correctly.
