It is great news and I'm so happy but I am also very dissapoited because not only am I back at square one again but now I also have to find out why the prolactin level is high. The only other causes I have found during the massive amount of research I have done over the last few days is pregnamt or breast feeding and neither applies to me. I had my uterus removed almost 2 years ago due to severe hemorrhaging so bad I became anemic and had to be put on iron. A few places mentioned that low vitamins and minerals could contribute and I barely eat as I have no appetite and for the first time in my life I'm struggling to gain weight instead of losing. I've lost too much according to my doctor. Another posibility I read could have something to do with the fact that I was annorrhesic when I was in my teens. I have always been extremely independant, never let anyone do anything for me and have frustrated my husband over it because I won't let him do anything for me and I take care of everyone else. Now I have no choice. The severe fatigue has kept me in bed for most of the last 2 months with my family waiting on me hand and foot and I hate it. I get up to go to the bath room or shower and don't have to leave my room. Just taking a shower leaves me so weak my whole body trembles and my legs feel like jello. I want my life back. I can't live like this much longer. I'm not the type to sit back and feel sorry for myself nor do I want any pity. Just not the type of person I am. I'm strong willed, pig headed, stubborn, independant and have one hell of a temper when provoked. It must be the italian and irish in me. My fuse is a lot longer than it used to be but I'm running out of patients. I see my doctor on the 23 rd for the results of a bunch more blood tests including Epstein-Barr. I'll let you know how it goes. Send me a message that night because I'll forget. My memory is not so good either these days. I hope you are doing well and continue to improve. I appreciate you remembering and writing to me. It means a lot to me and reminds me I'm not alone with this. Have a great night.
