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.
