Prolactinoma then some
I was diagnosed with a prolactinoma in 2013.
I had my last child in 2011 and never stopped lactating ( I’ll add that I also had my spine punctured during my epidural and had to have a blood patch) by 2013 my periods had stopped migrains everday. My OB diagnosed me fallowed up with Endo started cabergoline, within a few weeks lactation stopped and periods started again. This is where the AND THEN SOME COMES IN. Since 2011 to now I’ve been diagnosed with a prolactinoma, fibromyalgia, ostiopeinia, carpal tunnel, raynauds, chronic fatigue, edema, I also have large swollen lyphnodes under both armpits not painful, biopsied and found non cancerous. I have a 7mm non calcified growth in my lung, 2 very small growths on my thyroid, an enlarged non painful thyroid which is visible and embarrassing. Just started getting ovarian cysts during my cycle. Now for daily symptoms. Migraines, joint pain, fatigue I crash about ever 2 hrs, sever anxiety, nausea, constipation, sometimes dizziness that fluctuates from day to day. Complete numbness in toes I have to put them in warm/hot water at least 1× a day. Occasionally chest pains which have been diagnosed as pericardidtis seems to flare up if I don’t take diuretics. Also have a small tissue on a valve in heart that seems to stay stable. I’ve also started gaining weight around my waist at a crazy rate. So my conversation is, I’ve been a mess since 2011 only seem to be getting worse. I have seen. Cardiology, GI specialist, rheumatologist, endocrinologist, ENT, neurologist and my pcp. numerous scans and blood tests. Almost everthing comes back abnormal but not enough to do anything about. So I just keep getting scanned and my blood drawn while all these drs just wait. I understand for some of these issues that’s what they think is best. Just unbelievably frustrated and sad I have 3 children and can’t work we are all very happy and have a wonderful life besides my health issues, some days I’m just over it all and feel depressed and helpless I just want to beg anyone for help. I eat very healthy do low impact exercise for at least 20min a day. Drink plenty of water take vitamins. I do what I can.
