I don't know where to begin exactly, so I'll begin by saying I have a high prolactin count. I've known for a very long time and for reasons that would take forever to explain, I haven't been able to do anything about it until now. Actually, it wasn't until 6 months ago that I was alerted that I needed to do anything about it but I didn't have the money.
For those of you that don't know, high prolactin most often is an indicator that there could be a tumor in/on the pituitary gland which is located just below the base of the brain directly behind the nose and right between the eyes. Other causes could be thyroid related, I believe.
So, about a week or so ago, I went to an Endocrinologist and had blood work done for my thyroid, then I went to St. Lukes and had an MRI done. It's really cool because they gave me a CD of my images with a viewer included. So I got to see the images before my doctor did. I reviewed them and reviewed them and couldn't find anything.
I heard from my doctor and apparently they didn't find anything either. So, good news is, no tumor. And my blood work came back ok. So what's causing the high prolactin?
Don't know. Doctor is working on it.
