I'm 37 years old and was diagnosed in May with a Pituitary Prolactinoma. In February of last year I started getting severe headaches, low grade fevers, irregular periods, insomnia, lethargy, muscle pain, and my blood pressure, Triglycerides and cholesterol were suddenly through the roof. In May they found the microadenoma and also found a small hemorrhage right next to it. My prolactin levels were between 85 and 148 on any given day. My Endocrinologist put me on 2.5mg of Bromocriptine 2x a day. My regular primary care physician put me on Norvasc, Niaspan and Triamterene all for the Blood Pressure and high Triglycerides.
Since then I have developed chronic pancreatitis, transminitis (Liver Damage) and Anemia. I'm going to 8 different doctors and it seems like they each look at the one thing they specialize in and ignore all of my other medical issues (which i have to tell you is extremely upsetting). No one seems to be looking at my body as a whole or know why I suddenly have all these other complications.
Some doctors feel that I'm over 35 and that blood pressure, cholesterol and Triglyceride issues surface after the BIG "35" @_@ ***Rolls Eyes in Disbelief**. I just find it funny that I was perfectly healthy last year and suddenly come this January my body is going haywire. I get a physical religiously every year and I had never had blood pressure or triglyceride issues ever in my life.
Does anyone know if my tumor has anything to do with the anarchist behavior of my body or if the tumor might just be a sign of maybe another disease? I am desperate for answers. :(
