Do you think or know whether the tumor is causing all your symptoms?
and see if I can find any info concerning the tumors. So I guess if they find one in me that removal isn't an option? I'm probably getting ahead of myself here....after all, I don't even get the MRI til Monday!
I'll just wait for the test results for now, and take it from there.
Like Wakemeup said, it's hard to say whether the p tumor is the "cause" of CFIDS/M.E. symptoms for us, but it's certainly not helping. I have M.E., FM/MPS complex, now Lyme, etc.
I've had a pituitary tumor for at least seven years, but the radiologist didn't catch it until my wonderful neuro told him to focus on looking at the pituitary/hypothalamus area.
I suffer from chronic, incessant head pain/pressure, so I told my neuro that I wouldn't be surprised if I had a brain tumor. It was after that comment that the radiologist listened to my neuro and saw a very small 2-3mm pituitary tumor.
It's too small to be removed, but as Wakemeup said, it totally screws with our hormone levels. lol I can't say for sure if it's causing my incessant head pain. My neuro doesn't think so nor do I but who knows anymore.
Keep us posted. If you do have a pituitary tumor, mass, etc., make sure to get it checked every six months to make sure it hasn't grown.
