pituitary tumor?

Hi,

Posting here b/c it looks like there are a lot of threads about pituitary tumors.

I was told I had a high IGF (insulin growth factor) level. Could this possibly indicate a pituitary tumor?

Other symptoms I have are frequent headaches, fatigue, and irregular periods. Plus, also diagnosed with high dhea and testosterone (which was causing me a lot of facial hair issues!) I also have a lot of sinus/breathing problems, but i don't know if this is related to anything or not.

I'm having a 3 hr GH suppression test on Wednesday...anyone ever have one of these, and if so, what conditions is this test used to diagnose or rule out?
