problems...if your cortisol is high, you need to find a good Cushings specialist---do a lot of research and don't take the doctor's word regarding their "specialty".

Not much differnet from what I am feeling now... 30 years later.
It is necessary that you go to an endocrinologist who also has a speciality in Neurological issues as well. You might even go to a Neuro Opthamologist to get your visual fields checked. This could also indicate any Pituitary issues.
Remember, the Pituitary is situated smack dab between the Optic Nerves from each eye, like an X. The pituitary is a Pea sized gland that is in in Sella Tursica.
You might have your friendly family physician help you out by getting the Prolactin Blood test and a Lateral Skull, to check the status of the Sella and Pituitary.
Hope this info is helpful.

Had an appointment with my Neuro-Opthamologist and also with an EENT Specialists who does extensive work with NEURO patients.
My Prolactin level is 5, my MRI does not indicate any new problems. I do have a new 5mm pituitary tumor, but it has not grown since 2005.
It seems I may have damaged nerves or something wrong with my vascular system in my brain. I am scheduled for a special test on October 8th, to determine the situation.
