: Hi again
It is the fifth day, and no improvement. Today is an holiday. Could it be a pituitary tumor?? or clot?? I thought of the pituitary I have a pituitary-hypothalmus (sp?) related hormonal deficiency which is why I am on HRT. The last time I had skull xrays was in the early 1970's. I called my family doctor over the phone who prescribed Toradol (NSAID) which he thought would help reduce the problem. It did, but not for long. Please explain all this to me. It is the first time I had to report and complain this severe headache. The aching is stil in the back of my head. It still hurts when I bend over, cough, get up, etc. It is similar to the post spinal tap headache I had years ago. Can you tell me what early symptoms are for a pituitary tumor?  Many thanks.

Sorry for the delay Beth. I'm sure by now your HA has gotten better or you have sought treatment with your doctor. Pituitary tumor can cause hormonal problems and due to their location they often also cause visual problems. Breast milk production can be a sign of a pituitary problem. Headaches are also reported but less frequently. If a concern persists then I would recommend an imaging study (MRI) Good luck and I hope things are better.
