Ok so these are my symptoms...?

Ok so I am a young man in my 20s and I've been experiencing some symptoms over the past 3 years. Almost 3 years ago I developed muscle twitches all around my body. They last for a couple seconds and the move to a different part of my body. I am losing my hearing and was recently diagnosed as moderately hearing Impaired. Doctors have no idea why I'm losing my hearing but I've always taken very good care of it. I have developed weird stretch marks by my shoulders and around my stomach. I have also gained some weight it seems like and my facial shape has changed. I also feel very physically weak and have lots of back aches which I never used to get. I feel tired all the time and depressed sometimes. I have lost all motivation to do things. I also have been told in the last year that I'm getting irratable despite the fact I'm a very easy going guy. I have an easy life, a dream job, and I live with my parents. It's not like I'm going through something difficult other than losing my hearing. Tests for Klinefelters were in vain as my chromosomes were normal although I have similar symptoms. The only thing I can think of is Cushing's Disease. What do you guys think?

    The stretch marks and weight gain look like an endocrine problem like you mentioned, but the other stuff looks neurological. A bunch of tests are likely necessary to diagnose vague problems like this. My next move would be an appointment with a neurologist to get screened for neurological problems and then see where that goes. or start with an endocrinologist.
