I have been diagnosed with cervical disc herniations and lumber herniations and had a number of MRI's 5 years ago including brain scan which was normal. Just got back from seeing family doctor to go over last weeks MRI's of my neck and back. similar findings as i had 5 years ago, but new findings include, " enlargement of the pituitary fossa most suggestive of an empty sella, futher evaluation would need to be considerd." My doctor did not mention this to me during the office visit, i get home search on the web and am totally freaking out!!! called the doctor but he wont get back to me today!!!!!! i dont know what to do, i dont understand what is wrong with me. I do not have symptoms like headaches, nausia,vomiting,...just have neck and back pain, and i have been losing my hair for some time, just thought it was part of aging..am 52. I am so frustrated that this doctor did not go over this with me. what are my next steps? thanks much
