I'm sorry to hear you have not been feeling well. I'm not sure how to answer your questions, but I do have a question for you, as I've been having similar problems. It was discovered through MRI three months ago that I had a tumor on my pituitary of 5mm in size. I had the same tumor back in 2004. The doctor is not convinced, however, that the tumor is what is causing my symptoms, since my prolactin levels are normal. He can't explain why I've been lactating, however.

Anyway, since I had my daughter more than one year ago, I've been experiencing several symptoms, including extreme fatigue, joint pain (sometimes so severe I can't function), unexplained weight loss, headaches, dry eyes/blurry vision, heart palpitations, upset stomachs, heartburn, mouth sores, salt cravings, dizziness, confusion, low blood sugar, depression and anxiety. I also have had low blood pressure for some time and 10 years ago was diagnosed with PCOS. All of these symptoms have been incredibly diffuclt for me, as I am a military wife who has a child to care for, and my husband is deployed pretty much around the clock.

I did have a 24-hour urine collection done, and many of my catecholamine levels were low or borderline. I'm still waiting for the hospital to schedule my ATCH stimulation test, and I'm getting tired of waiting for treatment. How were you diagnosed, and how did the doc determine it was a result of the pituitary tumor? Is it possible that I have Addison's, in your view?

Thanks for any help you can provide! I hope you're feeling better soon!
