Pituitary tumor symptoms: joint, muscle and body aches
Hi. I am new to this. And not sure I’m in the right category. I was diagnosed with a pituitary tumor in November. However, I have been experiencing terrible joint, muscle and body aches for a year now. No doctor knows why and nobody can confirm its from the tumor. I’m frustrated and becoming very hopeless and depressed. Can anyone with a pituitary tumor relate to body pain?

That’s great that you called and got a much earlier appointment for your MRI!
You are resilient- keep up with your different ways to stay strong and positive!
been going through same things for 2 years!!! Pain getting worse daily….whole med team now!!! I am seeing my neurosurgeon on 5ec 21 and will say, " I want this tumor out NOW!! " the pain is debilitating! changed GP's because she ever said for 2 years was , "I don't understand what you are driving"
Anyway, can't afford the $50K to go to Mayo so will continue to push and advocate for myself in Alberta!! The Canadian Med system is not all it is cracked up to be!! I am on the journey and Will win!!
Can a regular MRI see the difference of a tumor and cysts? I was told I have a cyst on my pineal gland that wasn’t there before and I’m so sick in bed bound and just got out of the ER. Please any help would be greatly appreciated 🙏🏻🤍 blessings of healing ❤️🩹
@lidiana – I’m sorry that you are so sick! Can you tell me what brought you to the ER?
Did you have the MRI there?
A skilled radiologist should be able to tell the difference between a tumor and a cyst. Do you have a follow up appointment after your ER visit? Neurologist?
As far as I have learned from reading about pineal cysts they are not that uncommon, but they have to be followed. Obviously, if they get large they can cause problems too.
A Neurology follow up is very important so that you will know if the cyst is causing your current problems and also what are you supposed to do.
@astaingegerdm im trying to get help with neurologist but they seem not concerned even tho I’m extremely symptomatic and not thanks to a laparoscopy I found other positive neoplasm. I’m so sick and tired of the gaslighting. I hope this stops for the good of everyone since we literally are killing each other with indifference and lack of care. This is not what God call us to do and we keep missing his point. I’m so scared of the heartless humans in medical fields and out of it as well.
Accountability it’s non existent in this fields apparently 😞
You mention a neoplasm found on laparoscopy- can you go into more detail?
