I have all the symptoms of Cushings Syndrome except for osteoprosis. I have a fibroid tumor, a cyst on my ovarie, high blood pressure, swelling in my feet and lower legs, muscle weakness at times, potassium inbalance, my sugar ranges from 130-148, I have the purpleish pink large stretch marks, the hump on my back up by the neck, arms and legs that are thin compared to my middle body size. I have some problems with my vision that comes and goes, I get dizzy at times, I just keep gaining weight no matter what I do, I have back pain around my kidney area and my face has cushionoid features (my dr. made this remark). (I have irrigular periods. The last one I had was in August and then the 1st of March I finally started again. I am 55 years old but have been having this problem off and on since 1989.) The rest of the symptoms mostly started in 1970 when I had my first child. I weighed 118 lbs at 6 months then just started gaining and by the time I delivered I weighed 190. My dr. told me during a exam while I was pregnant with my first child that I had a fibroid tumor (it is currently the size of a gratefruit) I had a tubal pregnancy in 1983, it ruptured and both my tubes were removed. The dr. said I had para tubal cysts. Yet, my cortisol level is around 42. I am at my wits end, if I keep gaining weight ( I am majorly over weight) and if my BP, sugar and potassium don't get under control I will be having more problems. Now that cushings seems to not be the problem I don't know where else to look.
