Back in 2007, I was diagonised with a prolactin tumour. I had several symptons, one of which was waking 2-3 times at night to urinate. This disturbed my sleep and so agrivated my symptons of fatigue.
In 2007 I was proscribed Quinagolide (Norplac) and the symptons slowly went away. In 2013 I had a brain scan, which showed the tumor had gone, so in 2014 I was told to stop taking the medicine.
About 3 months later, the sympton of night time urination slowly started to come back.
I spoke to my GP, who first thought it might be depression (I don't know why, as I've never suffered from this?) but after three visits, he refered me to a bladder specialist. They only looked at the bladder (not the kidneys) and said everything was fine and gave me solifenacin to stop urine production. It worked, but I had to stop taking it as it makes me very drowsy and gives headaches. They then gave me oxybutynin and said to see them again in May, but it's sideeffects are the same.
I also saw the pituitary doctor. He recommened another brain scan, but there is a waiting list, so I wont see them again until September.
The bladder problems have become really bad now. I am usually so tired at night that I fall deep asleep and so either wet myself or don't wake until I get stabbing pains in the kidneys. These are really painful.
Are these sort of bladder symptons assocated with prolactin tumours?
