Hey everyone I am 22 years old and I have been having a rough two years.
Some background info is back in 2005 I was seen by my gyno who pulled blood work and found I had large amounts of testosterone in my body. She then did a mri and found a tumor on my pitutary gland. PLace me on meds and sent me home. After a few months check blood levels again and said I was better.
Months later I went back about trying to have a baby because it just wasn't easy. So I was placed on steriods and metformin and about a year later I was pregnant. My periods were always heavy but always on time.
Then in Sept of 2007 I delievered and felt fine. At 6mths after delivery I asked to be put on Yaz birth control. One week on med I was sent to hosp for fuzziness, and very bad obsessive thoughts. Never had it before in my life. I started on day two of Yaz having headaches and made a call to my dr who setup for a mri to check and see if tumor was back. it was not back. After several crying spells, mood swings and freaking out I called gyno and they suggested I have Post partum depression and placed me on effexor xr and to take it.
Meanwhile this is 2 years later I have been diagnosed with panic disorder, ocular migrains, cluster migrains, tinnitanitus, sinusitius. I have gained 50 lbs and cannot loose it. I workout at gym but weight seems to stay. I am severly fatigued and hardly am able to get up and move. I have very bad night sweats that just drench the bed and I have headaches that are unbearable at times. Along with other symptoms numbess in face, arms, legs, headaches, depression, panic attacks, mood swings, paranoia, loss of sex drive and I have stopped having a period. Seen several docotrs and they basically say loose weight and u will get better or they look at me like a hypercondriac and send me elsewhere.
I have an appt with a endo in June see 4 months away like they really care. The doctor has checked my thyroid it was normal did a metabolic screening t was normal and says that if I had cushings it would show up on a metabolic screening is this true? I am at my wits end.
Please if you have any information that could help me plz email me.
