i am a 27 yr old male with a pituitary tumor. i am taking medication to lower prolactin lvls. i am get really bad headaches. they seem to be focused behind my left eye and temple. does anyone happen to know if that is tumor related? if not what is causing it to be only right there?
Is this a change after the medication?
Have you seen a neuro-opthomologist, and are you being followed by your doctor regularly for MRIs, tests and all?
The meds do have side effects - so you need to determine if it is a side effect or if the med is not working. If you have not had levels taken recently (I get mine taken quarterly), I would get them done. I would speak to the doc and/or pharmacist about the headaches - see doc if you do not get satisfaction about answers.
thank you for helping rumpled, i havent seen my doc in about 2 months. but i did just see the eye doctor and he said it has nothing to do with the tumor or the meds. I had a lapse in time with my meds for about a week due to an insurance issue and thats when it started. it went on for about 3 weeks and stopped. idk, i just find it to be 2 much of a coincidence to happen while i had the lapse. i figure the meds worked its way out of my system and and then the headaches began. what do you think?
i am went back on the same meds about a week after the lapse. the headaches continued for about 3 weeks. i agree, it may be withdrawal. but can that withdrawal taget one spot in my head and only that one spot?
