Sorry in advanced for the typos and bad spelling....
I'm 25 year old white female, never been preg. I noticed in April of 2007 that my breast were lactating. This was from both breasts. I took preg. test 3 times all were negative. I went to the OBGYN and she took T3, T4, Free T something..Prolactin level and preg. test...ALL WERE NORMAL. In Aug. I began having the worst headaches ever, I mean mind numbing headaches. I went to the ER and was admitted due to the fact my head hurt so bad I could barely stand up. I had a CT scan MRI and blood work for 4 days, nothing was abnormal. Well I did notice my prolactin level went from 24 to 12 in 24 hours, but the doctor never said anything about it. Anyways for awhile now I have had very weird long black hairs that show up out of nowhere on my body. Sometimes in patches and sometimes just one here and one there. I have also noticed my periods are super heavy but only last about 2 1/2-3 days max. The cramps before my periods are getting very very bad, but again the doctors don't link any of that together. I had a 10 pound weight lose, then I gain weight out of no-where, acne, wierd hair growth, menstrual irregularities, galactorrhea, and migrains......The doctors say they don't see a pituitary tumor, and blood levels are all normal....They also ruled put medications that could be causing this....Does anyone have any idea what could be wrong. I do know that I have cysts on my ovaries but the doctors say that should not be a problem and that it's normal to have that at my age? Anyways I'm going crazy here...Thanks for reading this

  • Wow, that is fascinating. I was just curious since it's been a couple of months, have you had any luck trying to find out what it is?
