Hi Jeff,

It sounds like you are having a difficult time managing your health. I'm not a medical professional so I cannot answer your questions. I can however suggest that you find a doctor that has experience treating patients with pituitary disorders.

Here is a link to a list of pituitary specialists:


I'm not sure what area you live in but we have several doctors on the list in various areas. If you cannot find one in your area, it may be worth it to travel or you can contact one that is closest to you and ask them if they know of anyone in your area that may be able to help. Finding the right doctor, one that will listen, is very important. Please try to find a pituitary endocrinologist that can help you manage your symptoms. Feel free to contact me at tammy@pituitary.org if you have any questions.

Take care,

Issues Mounting - Losing Faith of Physicians - Feeling

Fourteen Hours of Sleep?

a few weeks back, getting up and fresh takes fourteen to seventeen hours. I am
missing doctors’ appointments, making them angry, and speechless. My
relationship with my PCP is most fair shot. I take the blame. Last night I
became fed up with the sleep. Every hour I took 10 mg of Cortisol. Eventually,
it worked. Not completely, but I began to feel as if I cooking dinner wasn't

Hands Freeze?

New symptom. My hands freeze.
It is arthritis or osteoporosis. I don’t know the difference. I pulled over the
car three times. I screamed foul words and tried to relax my hand. The answer
from my PCP didn’t even write it down.

I use painkillers responsibly. My neurosurgeon stated not to discontinue them.
I am doing it in a case. I can’t afford a doctor was not providing medical
treatment once they find out painkillers are in my daily regimen. It happens
frequently; doctors see it, the attitude in the room changes.ote: I have been using hydrocodone for ten years after my first surgery. I was on day two of detox. My plan is to go to an ER and merely state the facts. I took the pain killer because I am in pain, and I
can’t walk into an ER cranky and perturbed.
