Is itching common with Cushing’s Syndrome?

Question

Guest Sharon Johnson

Is itching common with Cushing’s Syndrome?  Is it common to feel somewhat good for a day and then have itching, high blood pressure, nausea, flushed red face?

Sharon, I'm not sure of the answer to this question, but I have occasional itching.  Mine started in perimenopause and it was helped by first taking estrogen pills, then weaning off them and onto soy shakes.  

When I became menopausal, the itching seemed to have stopped but it's returned in recent years.  Only occasionally, but about every month I get intense random itching.  Benadryl helps.

Because of the seemingly cyclical pattern to the itching, I asked my endo about it and he said I should get my liver tested.  (I didn't.  I just put up with the itching when it happens).

So I don't know the answer to this question but know that you're not alone!

Best of luck to you.

Thanks, Gig!

I also got this answer from another Cushie:

Yes, extreme itching. Diabetes causes itching and Cushings causes uncontrolled diabetes.

Hi Sharon,

I had all of that except for the nausea. The itching I had mostly at night and it woke me up. The flushing red face and chest and arms were the colour of lobster and then my face was the colour of red wine.
