I think it might not hurt all of you who complain of head pressure to also have your prolactin checked in case you have a pituitary tumour. about one in six people does, and if you have Lyme, I would think the likelihood may be much higher because those patients tend to have a lot of cysts and tumours. A prolactin test is really simple and can be taken along with other blood tests.
Interesting you should mention that.
I requested a dye enhanced mri to check my pituitary gland - and it showed the stalk had a slight deviation to the left - but didn’t show a tumour - maybe because they weren’t looking for one?
Great - something else to worry about
I’m bringing all my imaging to Dr J appt so I will mention that.
