Hello good people. Bear with me. 🐻 So i think I maybe have Cushings. For 3 years now I have been feeling tired, with muscle and joint pain, fatigue.also diabetes insipidus ( I think, excessive thirst and urination) and excessive brusing on legs. My period stoped for a year or so after the pill. That's when I started looking for a couse. My doctor gave me metformin for my period wich helped as my period was back and regular.

My GP has suspected Cushings for a while now. I have the extreme fatigue, muscle weakness, round face, facial flushing, Buffalo hump, weight gain right in midsection - all the alleged tale-tell signs.

I guess my question is has anyone else out there ever had initial normal cortisol test results only to later find out it’s Cushings?
