Re: High Prolactin Levels!!!
I was diagnosed hypothyroid back in Jan '07. I'm still having symptoms despite excellent thyroid levels. I have headaches and I've started having trouble with my vision. I'm going in on Monday for some follow up blood tests including a redo of my prolactin levels, it was around 50 in Jan, that's above normal but not super high. If my next test is elevated I'll be going in for an MRI pronto. I assume my endocrinologist is looking for the same thing your daughter's doctors are - pituitary adenoma or aka just "prolactinoma". (almost all are benign)
Why the long wait for an MRI? I know from what I've read that most prolactinomas are small and can be treated sucessfully with a medication called Bromocriptine.
