Took corticosteroid longer then recommended , excessive urination 2 months could my cortisol levels be a mess without visually looking like Cushing's?

In brief: Still taking Rx?

You do not have to look like you have Cushing syndrome to have Cushing syndrome.
If you are not taking corticosteroids now, you may not have it however. A likely explanation has to do with blood sugar, not cortisol. Taking corticosteroid may raise your blood sugar, and this can lead to you needing to urinate more often. A simple test could be a urinalysis first.
