Cushing syndrome is also known as hypercortisolism. The cause of Cushing syndrome is an excess of cortisol. This can happen because of a tumor in the adrenal gland or the pituitary gland or if you take prescription steroids for conditions like asthma, rheumatoid arthritis, or lupus. Cushing syndrome is more common in women between the age of 25 and 40. Symptoms include depression, weak muscles and bones, massive weight gain in the neck, back and upper body, rosy face, and exhaustion. In most cases the tumor can be removed and the recovery time is between 2 and 18 months.
