Anyone with any info on Cushings would be appreciated. I went to an endocrinologist after seeing every other specialist in town. He did the 24 hour urine, a load of blood tests and the cortisol test. It turned out my cortisol test is abnormal, I have very high calcium levels, hypothyroid--he told me he was fairly certain I have Cushings but on getting back the rest of the tests said they don't indicate it. My symptoms are headache, weight gain around the middle, round face, small neck hump, rapid heart rate, flushing, chest and upper right side pain, tremors in my hands, rise in blood sugar and blood pressure, odd sensations in my face and nose and some kind of weird feeling that comes over me like I'm scared to death and don't know why. This doesn't seem to me to be what I've read about panic attack---I don't breathe fast or hyperventilate. (In the past year my family doctor has put me on Atenolol for the new rapid heart rate and glucophage for the sugar.) The endocrinologist ran the tests again after a few weeks and am waiting for results now. Does this sound like Cushings and is it sometimes hard to diagnose?Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
