Meanwhile increase your fluid intake. If you do not feel like voiding in next 4-6 hours, you may need to go emergency room for evaluation of the kidney function tests.

Thanks for using Just Answer.
Yes exactly, prolactin is the likely culprit here.
Your doctor should also get an MRI of the brain to look for the pituitary gland abnormality which secrete prolactin. A microadenoma (small enlargement) of the pituitary can cause headache and prolactin increase. These would need medication called Cabergoline for 3-6 months.
