Hello, I am new to PCOS!
I have just been diagnosed with PCOS! I have an elevated level of Prolactin, and Testosterone (with weight, acne, hair growth on my face problem, my mom just died of breast cancer, and her sister did as well, and her other sister has PCOS-just for the history for you guys)... but I have been reading that Prolactin is supposed to suppress Testosterone.... wondering if anyone else has both high levels of prolactin and testosterone?
I am wondering though if the elevated Prolactin is another endocrine problem, as I sporadically get terrible headaches, and my vision goes blurry... everything up close, and far away. (The eye doctor said I needed reading glasses, but it is a weak prescription, and I don't think that I would get that kind of pain behind my eyes if I don't have a pair of glasses to fix my sight... it is a little odd, because I can read without squinting, and I can wake up with this pain). I have been for a CATSCAN to see if there was a tumor in my pituitary (because of elevated prolactin), but nothing was abnormal on the scan. I am going for insulin-resistance testing next week, and apparently this can affect your vision, I don't think this explains the prolactin level though?? Just wondering if anyone has any thoughts about this the prolactin and vision issues.
