Hello all i have been in and out of the doctors lately and no one has figured out my problems. 4 years ago i started having facial flushing aswell as acne. My stomach started to have constant pain with diarhhea/constapitstion. 2 years ago the flushing spread to my chest knees and shoulders. I started to get permanent fatigue. I have always lifted weights so i stayed pretty thin and had a nice physique. Last year i started dieting, mainly less carbs, to see if that would help my problems but i actually lost too much weight 6’2 170lbs->150lbs) and didnt see any improvement. Within the last 5 months i stopped my diet and started eating sugary foods again and now weigh 188lbs (30lbs increase in 5 months). All my weight went to stomach chest and worst of all my face. I have extreme “chicken legs” even though i lift. Right now im dealing with extreme purplish flushing (face chest shoulders knees), acne, fatigue, insomnia, puffy face, diarhhea, easy infections, and slow wound healing. Lab tests: low platelets (110k), elevated liver enzymes, elevated histamine. I have had a ct scan for carcinoid and it was negative (getting a special new pet scan soon).
My question is, can this be cushings? Im a little overweight but not fat with all my fat being on my stomach, chest, face. I had symptoms for a few years before the weight gain. My face however looks like very rounded when it usually isn't. I dont have straie but my abdomen is always a little reddish on the sides. I tested negative for all alergies. I have before and after pictures aswell.
