So neither of you ended up having a pituitary issue?
I refrained from decreasing my dosage today.. It felt more responsible to wait and talk to my doctor on Tuesday.. But now it's 2pm, when my thyroid replacement would probably be causing my levels to be highest, and I feel exhausted/like I'm on speed... Now that I recognize this feeling as a hyperthyroid symptom it's going to be hard to keep doing this to myself. I may decrease my Naturethroid a little tomorrow. That should lower both my T3 and T4 a little.
My ct scan wasn't necessary, as I had a dexamethasone test done and I passed the test.
A couple months later, retested the cortisol and it was normal.
i had the mri of my pituitary gland already scheduled, and went ahead of it.
There was another blood test done - ACTH
I can't remember all the details now.
So, the MRI didn't show a tumor or cyst, but it said something like: "pituitary stalk slightly deviated to the left of unknown significance"
Of course I'm thinking maybe they missed the tumor or cyst that is pushing the stalk to the left...lol.
I have to add that my thyroid tests - TSH, FT3 and FT4 are good...and I've had them tested at least 3 times.
I never had thyroid antibodies tested...
