Hi wondered if anyone could help me out - been suffering with these symptoms lately and wondered if cortisol could be the issue 


- Thinning legs 

- Fat building in the trunk (abdomen and chest)

- Seemingly more fat under my chin 

- Excessive fatigue even after a nights sleep 

- Weak muscles - mainly back /arms and shoulders 

- muscle wasting 

- Feeling very low and anxious 


Thanks in advance ,

Those are all definitely symptoms of Cushing's...and excess cortisol.  I think I had every one of them while I was being diagnosed.

Have you taken steroids, especially often?  They can cause these symptoms.

Definitely mention these symptoms to your doctor.

Please keep us posted.
