Hi...new here. I have alot of symptoms pointingt towards Cushing's, I think. Starting with infertility, premature menopause (age 28), HTN, Insulin Resistance, High Triglycerides, Puffy, Round Face, Osteopenia, Red Cheeks, Hot flashes and Serious Weight Gain (all over but abdomen/trunk area is out of control)Fatigue,Muscle Pain and lastly noticed by my husband this weekend...I'm developing a lump of fat between my shoulder blades/neck area. It sounds like it could be Cushing's, but I've never had a cortisol level drawn...I'm off to the Endo. Doc next week. Any input or info would be GREAT...I'm scared. If this is Cushing's I've had it a long time...I've just turned 40. Thanks for listening. Jen in NJ
