Hello martinosdarlin,

I hope you are able to find someone who can help you soon. A year is too long to wait. I really think you may need a specialist so that you can get the bottom of it and start treatment instead of searching for answers. Please keep us posted and let us know if we can help.

Take care,
Tammy

Hello martinosdarlin,
I am sorry to hear about the troubles you have had getting a diagnosis. Have you seen any of the doctors on our list of physicians experienced with pituitary disorders? If you haven't I highly suggest that you do, as soon as possible. You need someone with experience who can get to the bottom of your symptoms and provide the best treatment plan for you. Here is link to the physicians page.

At least contact one of them, maybe they can't recommend someone or something that you can do to help.
