    i forgot to mention, before i was dxs with cfs i had very bad bouts of cluster headaches ! asked my doctor to do an mri of my head and they found a pituitary macroadenoma that is in the back of the sellica (the bony structure that protects the pit) so it could not be operated on. i went ot 4 different doctors and got 4 different views on the tumor and my fatigue !
    i do know my prolactin level's were above 400 pretty high 4 a 42 yr old male, and i had all kinds of weird horomone things happening as well. plus that's when i came down with mono and the cfs started.
    so i have one more pituitary scan next month and if its not grown or shrunk i can rest about that problem.
    very confussing stuff ! be well all

    There's been a lot of talk on here lately about this. When I was first having health problems, I thought maybe this was my problem, but no one has ever checked my hormone levels--I specifically asked two doctors and both of them said it wasn't necessary. :shrug:

    Early in my illness, I did experience absolutely horrible headaches. I almost went to the ER one day because I was in so much pain. But, when the semester ended, so did my headaches. I figure it was tension headaches, but I don't know.
