    hi. unfortunately this is all quite specialised and sometimes beyond the training of general practitioners...however i'd suggest looking at the website for  the pituitary foundation. they have a document aimed at GPs which is very clear and has some useful information.  it might be worth printing it out and taking it to your GP, highlighting the relevant pages that you think refer to your particular condition.

    Sounds like you need to see an endocrinologist as well as a neurosurgeon. They should be able to prescribe something to rebalance any upsets in your hormone profile.

    good luck with it all

    I'm sure that this is stating the obvious but just in case... Have you tried eliminating all table salt ( = Sodium Chloride) from your diet? Microwave dinners are notoriously high in salt so it's not just what you put on your chips!
