Re: Undiagnosed pituitary disease

It will take time to see your weight change after a small dose increase, but at least now there is hope, and you know what is wrong, and will get your meds adjusted to the right doses. I would highly recommend, if you are still feeling sick, to get tested for other autoimmune diseases, since you have one, you may have others. Many of them cause significant fatigue, and some cause swelling either in the tissues or joints, and can affect the feet. I would ask for Vit D, folate and Vit B12 levels to be tested on blood, as B12 and folate deficiency can cause burning in feet from peripheral neuropathy. You may only have one part of the puzzle put together, I hate to say. But the more pieces that fall into place, the better you can feel, so it is worth finding out!
