      Jan I think you have described most of the symptoms the majority of us get. If you are worried go to the doctor though. I can tell you I have gained weight. My periods are out of control I get crippling migraine and my mood can be up and down. I get muscle aches, tummy ache, indigestion - the list goes on. Hope that helps xx

    I just got tested for the hormone prolactin which is the hormone that produce breast milk and was high and I goggle and the first thing said is cause bening  tumor in the pituitary gland .  Im at ease because stress , anemia ,  and other things also can cause this hormone to raise . I need to stop goggle I went and retake it again .  I’ll keep you post it . I wish they have something natural medicine for peri symptoms . Did you aunt got surgeries I’m curious about the treatments .((((  Hugs )))

      Hello Eliaimee

      I’ve had a pituarty tumour since 2005 which causes me to have a high prolactin level I have been on medication since. 

      Your right some of the symptoms are the same as peri menopause and when I started peri in 2011 I didn’t know what had hit me as I had it twice as bad but not everyone is the same. 

      Please dont worry yourself silly cos you’ll get all stressed and feel worse,

      sending you a comforting hug x

    Hi

    I’ve got a pituitary tumour, (prolactinoma) I’ve had it for 25 years. It messed my periods up along with my mood, depression mainly. I am now in peri and still taking meds for tumour as the excess prolactin the tumour produces suppresses oestrogen as well as peri doing its thing so it’s like a double whammy. The tumour itself is nothing to worry about unless it’s bigger than 1 cm as it can press on optic nerves. It will never turn cancerous. Don’t stress over it, there’s loads of reasons other than it being a tumour and there’s no evidence of it being hereditary.

      Hello Bellaboo

      i too have a pituitary tumour (hyperprolactinoma) and the experience of per starting in 2011 was an enormous shock to the system, I had 2 1/2 years of constant headaches feeling I could pass out and anxiety which i’d never experienced before among many other symptoms. How have you gone on with  your symptoms. Love to hear from a fellow sufferer. X

      Hi anxiousface 

      Yeah the anxiety has been the worst thing since starting peri. The tumour always had me in and out of depression but last year when peri started I thought I was literally going to die or end it all. I started peeing blood when I had a period and had really bad bladder infections because my oestrogen was so low. I went back on cabergoline after stopping them for a few months and went on anti depressants and hrt. I feel a bit better mentally but still feel like I have no future, useless and have no confidence. My hair has been falling it out for about 10 yrs, doc says that it’s prolactinoma and with peri I have all sorts of random pains in legs, chest, stomach and get acid reflux a lot. There’s so much to mention I’d be here all day. How have you coped over the years and also with peri? x

      Bellaboo you are really suffering and been through so much I so sorry. I thought I had it bad and often feel sorry for myself but your so much worse than me I have not experienced depression. I’ve had the tumour since 2005  and coped quite well except for the horrendous headaches, weakness and tied but when I didn’t realised I’d started peri in 2011 but I started to feel faint daily my appetite disappeared and I became anxious, I had so many

      tests but not one GP or specialist mentioned peri menopause, the conclusion was hypoglycaemic which is low sugar level and as I already suffered from low blood pressure that started to dip lower daily so I would continue to feel faint and shaky. I stopped going out alone and my world fell apart. I was in work full time but some days couldn’t get there. It’s taken till last year for me to feel myself again. 2018 I promised myself I will get me back and you must try and think like this too cos we have so much to live for, bellaboo please promise me you’ll try, it will get better but it will take time. I’m sending you an enormous comforting hug xx

      Hi

      Thank you for your kindness 💖 I keep saying that this year will be better but I keep letting my head tell me that somethings not right with my health as I physically feel so I’ll all the time. I do hope you can get better and I will keep trying as well. Take care and keep posting your progress xx

    Yes it’s best to check it out but it would be through a doctor with a blood test for a pituitary tumour. It can mess with your vision if it’s 1cm or over but I’m sure you would have had other symptoms before now if you have one. I’ve been getting zig zags and headaches with peri menopause along with loads of other symptoms and I started panicking about my health and now have health anxiety so on anti depressants.  This getting older thing is a nightmare. Take care and I hope all is well for you.
