Re: Thyroid troubles
Your pituitary is what releases TSH so yes, your pituitary tumor can totally mess with your TSH levels if the tumor itself is secreting TSH. That little tumor is probably the cause of your trouble with the up down up down effect.
Your pituitary sends signals via TSH to the Thyroid to release hormone or not. If that tumor is interferring with those signals, as it appears it is doing, then you would get that kind of wildly fluctuating TSH, particularly if you've been tested for antibodies and nodules in the past and the results were negative. Essentially if you have a healthy thyroid and you are getting those symptoms, then absolutely yes, that little tiny tumor can cause those fluctuations.
