I am a 39yo female who has been lactating but not pregnant since 14 months. I have also gained about 40 lbs in the last 18 months.
I have had prolactin levels tested twice, thyroid checked, had a breast ultrasound and mammogram – all WNL. I had a Vitamin D level of 14.2 and was prescribed Drisdol and Vitamin D which I took since September. I just had my blood drawn for both Vitamin D and Calcium.
It has been suggested that I ask for a CT scan to check for a pituitary tumor even though my prolactin level is normal. Other symptoms I’ve had: weigh gain, loss of interest in sex, hair loss, heavy periods, heartburn in the last few months which is new for me.
Any suggestions? I have an endo appt on 1/12.
