Hello Dr. Mo. My mensturation was abnormal in April but after that it was all good. I have got my prolactin test 4 times and it's fluctuating and last month tested it was 41. I get severe unexplained headaches as someone is pulling hair of my scalp and also I get blured vision and feels pressure on my left eye and eye sockets.
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
I can't call I am at work please help me though I am really concerned. No period are fine
Doctor: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 8 months ago

Your prolactin level is high enough to worry about a prolactinoma. Generally they are much higher than that and rarely will a prolactinoma cause those headaches until it's much higher. Have you had an MRI done at all of the head?

No haven't got that done. Do you think it is something serious.
Doctor: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 8 months ago

No, I don't think it's anything serious at all based on what you're describing.

Have you had an exam done by a doctor to see if these headaches could be stemming from the neck or due to tension headaches?

How long have they been going on for now?

Ok! This is since August 2017
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
I have only got my prolactin level tested with other blood tests nothing else though.
Doctor: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 8 months ago

I see. That's what I suspected, if the headache is been going on for this long it's not likely to be a dangerous headache such as a tumor.

Ok! then what it could be
Doctor: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 8 months ago

So the 2 possibilities would be a migraine or tension headache but it can still be a referred pain from a pinched nerve in the neck.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
