So, I typed Cushing's into youtube search and one of the videos that turned up was an interview with a model that had Cushing's:
Talk about an unusual case: She developed Cushing's symptoms, went to a Chinese acupuncturist for answers. The chinese acupuncturist told her it sounded like cushing's and to go to an ER immediately. From there she was sent to a general physician in NY who diagnosed her "in the waiting room" with Cushing's. She went in for emergency surgery two weeks later!
Oh, if only it were that easy for all of us.
