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?

@cheryl1 – You have been through so much in such a short time- Are you on any medications now? What do you experience being your biggest challenge now?
@cheryl1 Thank you so much for the update. You certainly have been through a lot over the past five months. Will you be going to physical therapy in order to build muscle?
Do you find it difficult to keep up your determination and courage to complete the recovery process?
