    Doctor suspects Cushing's but I am losing weight, please give me your thoughts


    I am a 22 year old male with no known health issues. It was recently discovered I have low testosterone, high cortisol levels, and slightly high cpk (creatinine) as well as a vitamin D deficiency. I just completed more blood tests and a 24 hour urine sample and am waiting results. The problem here for me is that I am not gaining weight like cushings pateints do instead i have been going down in weight. My fear is ectopic cushing's which relates to a tumor outside the pituitary or adrenal. What i have experienced is hair loss (receding hair line), depression and slight acne also i have had red eye only in my right eye like pink eye but not pink eye and snoring. Also 3 years ago I was physically jumped by a group of people and hit with multiple objects to my head all over, MRI's right after showed no damage to my brain, but could this cause a pituitary tumor possibly? (i hope so).....PLEASE LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK OR ANY IDEAS...
