lwanted to ask if excessive sweating is a symptom of Cushing I have read one article on here from one lady that she has had this problem.. I am due to see a specialist for this problem don’t want to waste someone time if it is due to Cushing.. 

l was listing all my symptoms and I have a lot..

Sweating hair loss weight gain round face hump on my back fatigue painful muscles bad tremors fatty liver diabetes bad eye sight in the last year vomiting and pain in stomach anger then low moods brain fog forgetting how to spell my name.

l found the problem is you can only ask your doctor about one symptom at a time, but the last doctor read my notes before I but in and said he was shocked he said we need to get to the bottom of your problems I counting my blessing I went in that day.. I find at our surgery you don’t see the same doctor you have to see who ever is available you cannot make appointment in advance which does help.

    Hi paulette37038

    Yea for me sweating was a symptom. I would wash morning and night and put my uniform on for work an I’d be soakin with sweat within half an hour an I hadn’t even done anything. I’ve had that problem for years. For as long as I think I’ve had Cushing’s cause I initially thought it was hormone problem but I had that all tested an it wasn’t. So I just lived with it. But when I finally was diagnosed I realised it was Cushing’s. 

    So I’m saying yes. 

    Doctors are meant to look at all the symptoms, look at individuals holistically not one problem at a time. Drives me crazy!
