    HRT and Cushing's Syndrome?

    Hi All, I posted this on another forum but no response, so I'll try here. Has anyone ever had symptoms of Cushing's Syndrome when taking HRT? Or rather, can HRT cause Cushing like symptoms? Since I have been on HRT now, about 7 years, I have developed a "hump" on the back of my neck and a pot belly along with a few other Cushing like symptoms. Could the hormones I am taking be causing this or should I look into it further? I thought about going off my HRT (Vivelle ***) and see if they'd go away. I am not a heavy person nor do I tend to over-eat, I am though a bit overweight....5'3#, 150lbs. Any suggestions?
