Breast milk but I'm not pregnant

I've had health issues for years now. Two years ago I finally saw my doctor due to dizzy spells, falling down a lot (I broke a bone in one fall which led to me asking for help) and memory problems. I've had trouble sleeping for years along with depression as well. I was sent to a neurologist who did an MRI and some blood work and ended up being told my symptoms were brought on by stress and/or lack of sleep. He said the MRI showed arthritis in my spine but nothing wrong with the brain. I was put on an anti-depressant and that was pretty much it. I stopped taking them after about six months since they didn't help.

I had my youngest child seven years ago. I breast fed for six months. Even though I stopped the one breast never "dried up." The other one did. I've never mentioned this to my doctor because I figured it was normal. Last week I started have pain in both breasts. I've been pregnant three times and have never experienced any breast pain. Nor at any time of the month either. I'm also certain I'm not pregnant now. After a few days of pain I decided to check them and now milk is coming out of both again.

I've looked up what could be causing this and I can safely eliminate pregnancy, certain drugs, I don't eat a lot of poultry, my weight and diet are the same as usual, in my early 30's so age shouldn't be an issue and my breasts aren't be "used" in the bedroom. Pretty much leaves me with a pituitary problem (unless I missed something). But if that is the case wouldn't it have showed up on my MRI? I know the MRI is from two years ago but at least one of my breasts had milk back then so I would assume if it is a pituitary problem it would have been there. Also, I haven't discussed this with my doctor (I'm debating if it's even worth bringing up) but if I do is there some type of blood work he can do. I dread the idea of having to show him milk coming out.
