You might want to get a 2nd opinion from an endocrinologists.
I have attached a link to doctors specializing in pituitary disorders on our website.
If the hyperlink does not work. Just copy and past.

Hyperthyroidism? Pituitary? was created by ccthomas1992

Hello, I am writing in this forum in hopes of gaining some insight of what is wrong with me based on the experiences of others.
The past two years, I’ve experienced:
• Stomach cramping
• Increased irritability
• Weight gain
• Loss of vision
• Frequent headaches
• Lethargy
• Thinning of hair
• Loss of sleep
• Loss of memory
• Mood Swings
• Nausea.

I’ve lived with these symptoms and experimented with change of diet, increased exercise, more sleep, etc. I work out 5-8 times a week. I don’t eat gluten. I drink lots of water. I take vitamins. I moisturize. Hopefully you get this gist.
When I had a physical this year I finally told my doctor of these symptoms and he suggested testing my thyroid. He tested it twice and received the same results.

The only abnormality was found in my “TSH”: TSH, 3RD GEN 0.14 uIU/mL

I was referred to an endocrinologist and left feeling more hopeless and with more questions than when I walked in.

When speaking to a family friend in the medical field- they suggested with all of my other levels being normal that it could by Hyperthyroidism OR a problem with my pituitary gland.

The endocrinologist stated that my blood test results indicate that I have hyperthyroidism but my symptoms reflect hypothyroidism. This has lead me here because I believe my symptoms would indicate an issue with my pituitary gland.

Any insight would be fantastic. I don’t want to keep paying for visits with specialists without any treatment plans or ideas.
