I have been suffering recently from headaches, lightheadedness, difficulty concentrating, memory problems, changes in vision, horrible balance, swollen lymph nodes just on my neck, excessive bruising, fluid retention, slight weight gain and depression. I have also had a few fainting episodes.

I have been doing a lot of research and had some blood work done because I thought maybe it had something to do with thyroid or vitamins. Most of the blood work came back with in the “normal” or “close enough” range. But the outliers are:

High BUN
High Creatine
High eGFR
Low Carbon Dioxide
Low Vitamin D
High Cholesterol
Low T4
High MCV
High urine pH
Slight protein in urine

I am only 25 and try to live a very healthy lifestyle but these symptoms are ruining my life!!

I was in a car accident a few years ago resulting in head trauma and unconsciousness. I have been doing a lot of research and am wondering if I had damage to my pituitary gland???
