If anyone will listen if greatly appreciate it. I've been having this issue for almost the year. My symptoms have been intermittent ( muscle wasting, moon face, brain fog, flushing sensation, bad anxiety). I went to the endo and tested but I think I should have waited for a day where my face was swollen. test showed normal cortisol but a raised creatinine ratio and raised dopamine.
My main question is does moon face ever come and go or worsen in severity in response to stress?
After a stressful conversation or event my face gets red dots and VERY puffy on the outside. But on a rare good day or sometimes after a hard workout it will go down the same/next day. On top of that, I've noticed a lot of fat loss in my face, particularly around the eyes.
Is intermittent nature of the moon face something that occurs in Cushing's?
