MRI showed no pituitary tumor, but I don't believe it
I've been suffering most of my life with low hormones, hypoglycemia and thyroid, although I was first diagnosed with hypothyroidism and hypoglycemia 4 years ago. I also have cortisol imbalances. I've been told I have hypopituitarism because my body doesn't produce hardly any female hormones on its own. I had to be put on hormones at age 17 just to start my period and even while on birth control pills for 20 year, I only had maybe one period a year. I'm now on bioidentical hormones and finally have regular periods. My growth hormone levels were also very low when tested a few years ago.
I had two MRI's though and no tumors were found. I was just told my pituitary gland was concave and therefore not functioning right. Since I started taking thyroid hormones 4 years ago though I've been getting worse. I have this band of pressure across my forehead and severe brain fog.
I feel like there had to be something on the MRI that no one saw and wonder if I should get a second opinion. I mean, if all I needed was hormone replacement, why am I not feeling better? Also, after a year on estrogen replacement, my estrogen levels are still around 1.5 (range starts at 0) and my testosterone is in the negatives. So something is preventing my body from absorbing and using any of the supplements I"m taking. Could that be from a tumor?
