I went to a Dr this week that thinks I may have a pituitary tumor. I have had hormonal issues, constipation, bladder problems, foggy thinking, memory troubles, shaking and tremors, headaches, extremely cold feet especially, depression. My grandmother had a brain tumors in the late 60s, but noone in the family can remember what type. She had it removed and live another 10 years. It wasn't the tumor that she died from though. She developed stomach cancer. That was her demise. The doctor put me on armour thyroid and said that should help. When I asked what else I should do if it was a pituitary tumor he said nothing else was necessary. That is not what my research has said. Can anyone tell me if this it true?
