Signs and Symptoms of Cushing’s Syndrome
Regardless of the cause, the symptoms are the same. However, many are either non-specific, common complaints or medical conditions and therefore the diagnosis is not always straightforward.
Moreover, there are a group of patients with little to no symptoms but abnormal labs who are categorized as ‘subclinical Cushings’ and should still be considered for treatment.
- High blood pressure
- Moon facies (round facial shape)
- Buffalo hump (mound of fat at the back of the neck)
- Stretch marks
- Abnormal hair growth
- Easy bruising
- Weight gain (particularly around the mid-section)
- Leg swelling
- Mood swings
- Irregular periods
- Muscle weakness
- Mental fogginess
