I have a history of Cushing's Disease, and had pituitary

Patient : I have a history of Cushing's Disease, and had pituitary surgery to help. I am about to turn 16, and it seems as if I am in remission. However, based on the past few weeks, I'm not so sure anymore. I have been EXTREMELY irritable and almost depressed. I also feel as if I am going through the same personality change I had when I had Cushing's. I am also on Weight Watchers and am exercising, but the past few weeks I have gained 2-3 pounds per week, and am growing hair on my abdomen. I'm not sure if this may or may not be related, but I also feel as if I have a cold, and am much more tired and unmotivated to do things such as reading/schoolwork, which I normally enjoy. Does this sound like a relapse?
