My Endo has not addressed the possibility of a pituitary cyst/tumor.
Kind of long story but since about 1999 I've thought there was a thyroid problem. My PCM never believed me or sent me to one, finally in 2006 during the Gastro's endoscopy he noted a "web" at the level of my thyroid and TADA it was a nodule. My TSH levels were actually of Hyperthyroidism but symptoms were hypothyroidism. So she did a testosterone test in 2008 and seen it low.
I am going to get a copy of my records this week to see what all tests and results, she did to a cortisol test but when I took the pill my schedule was nights and not sure if that throws off the test or not.
I did have a brain MRI for "memory" problems and such by another doctor a while back and had three subcutaneous cyst in my scalp. I wonder if you need a "special" MRI or not? I know they were not looking for anything with my pituitary during that time so you know how that goes.
I appreciate your experience with this and I will address the possibility with her at my next appointment and I will continue my T injections until then.
Do you know what causes the pituitary cysts? or what makes you a higher risk? I do have a cyst in my sphenoid sinuses and not sure if it is from that or maybe the pituitary but get serious eye pain and my right eye mainly tears so bad I cannot see.
