Mike's Story

In hindsight, I realize my daughter displayed all the symptoms of Cushings, starting a few years ago, with panic attacks and shaking.

She used alcohol for relief and eventually went through rehab. She's not 100% clean but does not drink much, however, she still has all the signs and symptoms of Cushings(upper body weight gain, moonface, buffalo hump, mood swings, insomnia, no menses, etc).

I understand that alcoholism can cause psuedo Cushings. Does anyone know if Cushings can cause alcohol abuse?
