Hi. Welcome to JustAnswer. My name is Uzair.
I am reviewing your post and will get back to your reply momentarily.

Expert:  Dr Uzair replied 15 days ago.

Your prolactin and ACTH levels are on higher side and your symptoms point towards pituitary adenoma, that is overgrowth of the gland. Pituitary is a small gland near origin of optic nerve which secretes various hormones that acts on various body organs like thyroid, ovaries, breast and its physical overgrowth produces headaches as well. You are on the right path as you should see an endocrinologist and you might need MRI to look at the pituitary gland as well.

Hope this helps.
