OK, here's my story and question, it's long so let me take a breath, and yes it does have to do with by pituitary gland.....
I decided, immaturely, to get pregnant at 16
so stopped taking the pill. Well I didn't have a period for 1 1/2 years, thank God. During this time I would have this really strange thing happen that none of my Dr's could figure out. One of my pupils would get very large, dialated, while the other was normal. It would come and go, very strange. I would have severe migrains and nothing the Dr's gave me seemed to work. Found that of everything the Dr's gave me, buying Aleve at the store worked the best. Then I was in a car accident and began to bleed. About a month later I was pregnant. First beautiful daughter was born.
Got on BC after the birth and was normal. Then, at 20, I decided it was time for another baby. Got off the pill and within a couple of "normal" months I was pregnant. Well it didn't last long. I miscarried at 10 weeks
So I tried again immediately and had on and off periods but got pregnant within 6 months of the miscarriage. Second beautiful daughter is born.
After giving birth to my second daughter I got on the pill again. About a year later I was having extreme bleeding and such horrible cramps I left work crying. They changed my pill a couple of times with no success and discovered, through a hysteroscopy (camera through vagina into uterus) and laperoscpy (camera through cut in belly button to view outside of uterus) and several ultrasounds that I had fibroid tumors in my uterus. They preformed a D&C and since then I have not had any pain and my periods went back to "normal" with the pill
And that leads us to where I am now. 27 and trying to get pregnant again. I stopped taking the pill a year ago and have only had one period. I have also been having the annoying dialation in my left eye again. Everything goes blurry and I look like a freak, my hair is shedding like a dog which is strange since now it seems to be growing on my upper lip, never had to wax that before
, I get terrrible migrains about once a week, I feel foggy and can't remeber things which just reverses at night when I can't sleep because I can't stop thinking about things, I am very tired during the day, I have been very moody and emotional, I have gained 40 pounds in the past year, I am natious, feel like the room is spinning at times, and the other day I had a wet spot around my nipple. And again a negative home pregnancy test, what is wrong with me? I went to the eye Dr to get a new prescription, both of my eyes are usually the same RX but this time my left eye was worse. They dialated my eyes and did the eye exam again, this time my eyes were the same. Weird huh?
I went to the doctors and they did alot of blood tests, again negative pregnancy, but the Dr said that there was something strange. One test showed that I was about to ovulate and another test showed that I was in post menopause, did I mention that I was only 27? Thyroid tests came back normal and now my Dr has ordered a CAT scan of my brain. He is pretty sure I have a tumor on my pituitary gland. That's great, I just wanted to get pregnant, not have brain surgery.
Anyway, thanks for letting me vent, does anyone here have a problem similar to mine or know anyone who has. I just don't know what to expect. I am scared. Are these really symptoms of a pituitary tumor?
