Hi Confused,

I am not a medical professional so I cannot comment about all your symptoms. I do know that the size of the tumor does not really have anything to do with how it is affecting you. I suggest you get a second opinion and complete hormonal testing. I also suggest that you go to an endocrinologist that is experienced at treating people with pituitary disorders. You deserve answers and assurances, not all endocrinologists have the necessary training to treat people who have pituitary tumors.

We have a list of pituitary specialists on our website, here is a link:



Feel free to contact us at (805) 499-9973 or you can email me at [email protected] if you have any questions.

Take care,
Tammy

Symptoms Associated with Low Estrogen was created by msconfused

Hi,
I have recently been diagnosed with Hypopituitarism, but I have not received an explanation for all of my current symtpoms. I have been experiencing loss of appetite, loss of satiety, stomach distension, loss of thirst, cold intolerance, loss of menstration, dry skin, acne, increased facial hair, water retention, thinning skin, loss of muscle firmness and mental disturbances. I go to the gym every morning and hot yoga in the evening but I never feel exhausted, I don't react to the heat, and I never experience dehydration. The biggest concerns for me are the loss of appetite and loss of muscle firmness. I am a very athletic person, yet no matter how much I exercise my muscles are not responding other than doing the physical work. It feels as though the nerves in my muscles are not transmitting signals back to my brain. The tumor that I have is very small and I am told that it is not putting any pressure on any of the surrounding organs, it is only putting pressure on the cells that produce estrogen. My question is, are all of these symptoms attriubuted to low levels of estrogen or should I have additional tests? I am currently on HRT, but my fear is that this will not resolve all of my symptoms. My endocrinologist hasn't assured me of anything, just advised to take the medication and see what happens. Not a good enough approach in my book.
