I am ill so this is short. I will try to make a more detailed answer later.
Do you still have a Neuro endo and do I get regular tests? Is your eye doc a Neuro optho? We need special docs and tests.
Get copies too of every thing. Things change.
Sorry to hear that you are ill. I still have a neurologist and an endocrinologist. They did tests every six months but once everything appeared stable they changed the check ups to every year. My eye doctor is just and ophthalmologist. Should I look for a neuro optho? Thank you for your response.
In my experience, a neurologist is not a pituitary doc... and you really need a competent pituitary endo - so you need a pituitary center. I get tests quarterly and I take a heck of a lot more thyroid which may be a consideration for you - as they may be thinking your TSH is low (it is now post op pit) but they have to look at all the thyroid tests too to see what you really need and my docs like the upper ends of the ranges, not low or mid range. I feel like crud otherwise.
You would be, IMHO, better off with a neuro-optho and a neuro-endo. You may need the DDAVP as well as other replacements.
Do you get copies of your reports and labs?
I haven't gotten any copies but I'm definitely going to. I found a pituitary center and I'm going to see what I can do to become a patient.
I am glad you found a center! Before you go though, they will want records. I helps if you have them and have read them yourself.
I sadly found discrepancies between being told *ok* and my tests - so getting my tests later on I found tons of evidence I had no idea I had!
I haven't gotten my records yet but I do recall one instance where my endocinologist had students she was teaching and one of them showed me my results. A bunch of my test results were on the low side but my endo told me it wasn't abnormally low so they ignored it. At the time I trusted my doctor but the more I find out the more skeptical I become. Thank you so much or your help! It's really got me on the right track towards feeling better.
Things like thyroid - my good doc likes the T4 and T3 in upper parts of the ranges. TSH sadly many labs use the wrong range (it is .3 to 3)...
Plus you have to look at the whole picture. And it helps if the doctor checks both the gland and the pituitary hormone so you get the loop (the signal and the response).
You must, as Rumpled advises, see an endo. A good one connected to a pituitray centre. You may need to see a neuro-opthamologist, but that can wait until a skiled endo reviews your test results and considers if your headaches and vision problems relate to levothyroxine as these are two rare but known side effects of the drug, see http://www.drugs.com/sfx/levothyroxine-side-effects.html
If you recently raised the dosage then that too would cause the side effects.
Do you take other meds? vitamins or supplements? diet pills? etc
be sure to tell the new endo he whole story of what you took and what you are taking EVEN if it doesn't see relevant to you.
You say: " A bunch of my test results were on the low side but my endo told me it wasn't abnormally low so they ignored it". The point here is to ask what is the trend over time? Are your lab results falling or rising? Are they low but not 'abnormally low' in all your tests? If so then you have an issue to investigate and for that you need a new endo.
You say you're often very thirsty and urinate a great deal. I know there is one condition that explains those 2 symptoms as well as fatigue and blurred vision: DIABETES. Have you been checked out for ths?
