Just returned from my neurologist appointment. Basically the stem attached to my pituitary gland is twice the size it should be. It could be a tumor or it could be lymphocytic hypophysitis, which is inflammation of the pituitary gland due to autoimmunity. The symptoms are very similar with both, but they are treated differently. If it’s a tumor they remove the pituitary gland, if it’s autoimmunity they use steroids. Either way there would be tons of side effects. Go figure. 😉
Next step is to find an endocrinologist and see what they say about it. I’m not sure at this point if it would be worse to treat it or not treat it. I am incredibly unhappy with my endocrine system function as it is, but the side effects could be quite severe. Is joint hypermobility considered an autoimmune illness? My immune system function is very poor.
