I am going to see a new dr. on Monday and want to try and express what is going on w/ me in a way that will help him figure out what is wrong. I get horrible debilitating headaches - dr. prescribed maxalt - which sometimes works and sometimes doesn't dent it. I've been diagnosed w/ asthma since 94, but I dont use the inhaler all the time. I use a flow meter to check & make sure I'm breathing okay. I am on cytomel for thyroid - when last tested TSH was normal, but FT4 was just about non-existant (<0.4). I'm 47; I had my 2 kids late - at 39 & 41 - due to infertility and went through treatment. I had a very difficult time getting my milk to come in. Since last child - I have regular but extremely heavy periods. In December, I was at the end of my rope - headaches, dizzy, lightheaded, felt like I could not catch my breath, - but felt way different than asthma. I went in, walk-in dr. did CBC & iron testing. Results - potassium low, iron 33, tibc 383, iron sat 9, ferritin 5.3. So I'm taking mv w/ iron. My optometrist has me come in 2 times a year for exams b/c he cant correct my vision as much as he thinks he should be able to. I was trying to make sense of everything - and pituitary came up - w/ sphenoid as a way to get to it. Then I remembered - way back in college I had horrible headaches & went in - they did ct - but decided it was stress. Years later - a different dr. looked at it and saw a mass in sphenoid that bowed the bone between right and left. Another CT showed sphenoid clear. Is it possible any of what I am currently experiencing could be due to a possible recurrence of something going on in my sphenoid? Do I ask for another CT? Are any of these things possibly related - I keep getting symptoms treated, and I guess I'm hoping there's an actual cause that can be corrected. Any advice or thoughts would really be appreciated.
