TBI and Hypopituitaryism

Hi!!! New to this board...I have been experiencing alot of endocrine problems for the last 15 years, or more. I went into premature ovarian failure at 28, and now at 40 I'm suffering from low levels of almost all of my anterior pituitary hormones...I stumbled onto a website talking about childhood TBI and how it can lead to Hypopituiaryism...and I'm wondering if anyone knows about this. When I was 11 I was in a diving accident and fractured C5-C6, I had a bad concussion complete with projectile vomiting and amnesia. I hit my head so hard during the injury the back of my hair fell out, at the point of injury...I'm wondering if this trauma as a child has left me with these endocrine problems as an adult. ANY INPUT WOULD BE GREAT!!!!!!! Jen in NJ

Re: TBI and Hypopituitaryism

have you had an MRI to your brain lately? See a neurologist and have one done asap, and also seeing an endocrinologist? Make sure you don't have a pituitary tumor, as these can really screw up your hormones and such...it's the "master-gland" ya know? Good luck!
