I'm a 22 yr old female who has been diagnosed with poly cystic ovarian syndrome and a benign pituitary adenoma. In the last year and a half, I have had drastic changes in vision ( I now wear glasses), I have begun having heart palpitations, I have a temperature intolerance, light sensitivity, hearing sensitivity (seems like I have super hearing now), and I can never get a good night's rest because I dream constantly. I used to sleep just fine, but I have not had a good rest for over a year. Also, my mood drastically changed. I am MUCH more emotional that I ever have been before as well. Neurologist said MRI was fine, nothing to worry about. Endocrinologist says all are related to PCOS which I have had all my life, but these symptoms I have not had forever. I am miserable and can't get anyone to listen to me. I don't know if the pituitary adenoma could be causing these symptoms or not, and if so, is there a way to treat it?
