I have a huge buffalo hump with purple striations below it on my back.
No high cortisol problem found.
Frusterated and searching for possible other cause.

diagnosed with cushings 2004 after being miss diagnosed 12+ years.
Head a left adrenalectomy for a benign adrenal adnoma. Been in secondary addisons since.
My right adrenal never fully recovered it makes about 4.5 cortisol. I average 12-15mgs of cortef per day.
Work full time as a nurse anesthetist, one daughter in 4th yr of college, have a very supportive husband we met in 2004 but did not marry until July 2012. Bicycling is my passion and like to cross country ski.
Interested in being a support for anyone with cushings or addisons.
Would like to compare notes with any addisions on how they adjust their steriods. I am 56yrs old.
