Question pituitary tumor question

I was refered to this board because I heard that chrisd and others here may have alot of information on my problems.

OK, here's my story and question, it's long so let me take a breath.....

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. Go figure ... 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. 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 terrible 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 constantly 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. My Dr is pretty sure I have a tumor on my pituitary gland. That's great, I just wanted to get pregnant, not have brain surgery. I had an MRI done yesterday but they couldn't tell me anything, just have to wait until my appointment on the 23rd, so the waiting game begins

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?

Re: pituitary tumor question

Aonther thing worth reading about is antiphospholid syndrome. It is knowen to make women miscarry, aswell as give massive headaches and a foggy feeling. You can read up about it in the lupus board and the autoimmune disease board. I highly recommend you do so.
