Hi, new to the forums here. I'm pretty desperate so I've gone online to try to find some help. I'm 22 years old, female, and have had a chronic set of symptoms for the better part of 2 years. Hopefully this will sum up some things.
Current symptoms that gradually worsen: Fighting fatigue daily, blurred vision when looking into distance, increased sensitivity to light ( can barely open eyes in sun ), Horrid headaches that come and go with pain killer not seeming to help, corner of BOTH eyes tinged yellow ( doctors brushed this off and could not explain it, liver tests weren't elevated enough to warrant investigation by them, I guess )
Here's a brief history: Had suspected meningitis at 9 years-old, doctors never found what it was. They just assumed it was meningitis. Was in hospital for two weeks headaches/elevated fevers then discharged after many tests and antibiotics stabilized me. I recovered ok.
Flashfoward to age 21: Went to gynecologists ( thinking I had reproductive issues after abdominal pain on right side and horrid weight loss ) and bright red, inflamed appendix that was 'elongated' discovered during a laproscopy by doctors after abdominal pain persisted since age 18. Discharged after a night in the hospital with no explanation as to why it. Helped fatigue slightly.
After this, fatigue ( a feeling of barely keeping my body alive ) continued and abdominal pain. Seen by specialist for abdominal pain and yellow eyes ( he confirmed he saw the yellow in both corners of my eyes ) and it was just assumed i had gallbladder issues. They took that out, noting the gallbladder had "minimal chronic inflammation" but noted no stones or anything of the sort. Felt better for a while. Eyes are STILL yellow in corners. It is not damage from the elements.
In the now: My current symptoms are: Yellow schelra in corners of eye and below eyelid, Horrid fatigue, 15 lbs or more underweight, yellow fluid coming out of ears, ear pressure right side, eye pressure/eye pain right side, dizzyness/bad headaches that come and go, Delayed menstral cycle, Extremely cold 24/7 body temperature of 95 degrees ( I measure it due to how cold I was ) and sore breasts with an occasional white discharge.
I have tried to get an appointment with an endocrine doctor thinking that the white breast discharge was a big hint that my prolactin levels are high, but I still need help towards a step in the right direction. They will not let me see an endo without a referral, which is rubbish as I've been through enough doctors already, I wanna skip it and get right to the point.
My main question: Do you think this is a sign of a pituitary malfunction? I am at my wits end and it's ruining everything in my life, especially since I enjoy physical activity. I know a lot of you may be in the same boat. If you have any ideas, I will greatly appreciate it.
