Hey guys, First time posting and been browsing the forums the last few days. I have some abnormal blood work and im hoping this is the cause for why ive been feeling awful the last 3 months. I’ll explain briefly.
3 months ago had a what i imagine, a panic attack out of nowhere at dinner. I’ve never been an anxious person or had an attack before. My life was going in a great direction so i was not stressed. That was 3 months ago and i haven’t felt right since. I am not on any medicine at the moment or being treated for TRT. I was taking adderall at the time but have stopped since.
Labs 8 months ago when i felt normal besides fatigue

I have some other bloods, so if im missing something feel free to remind me and ill post it.
MRI of my brain showed a 3mm-4mm Rathke Cleft Cyst in my pituitary. First endo i saw was not helpful and didn’t know what to think of it.
My current endo doc has been great so far and is ordering all the bloods and isn’t ruling out my pituitary being the issue for this. I have a follow up next week. i guess what im getting at is, could my bloods and symptoms be why i feel like complete shit and out of nowhere?
24 year old male, clean diet 5’11 190lbs. I used to lift 6 days a week but now i hardly lift 3 days a week because im so fatigued and feel awful.
Severe brain fog/lethargy
Anxiety and occasional panic out of nowhere
appetite not great alot of days
trouble processing things
loss of libido
orgasms aren’t as good
gaining fat around my lower stomach
and im sure a few other things.
I feel like my world did a complete 180 the last 3 months and i can hardly function. Does my blood work make sense for why i feel so crappy? Now were trying to find the cause, but i just want to know WHY i feel this way. My Blood pressure has also spiked pretty high sometimes but goes back to normal. Could be because of anxiety or another issue. Doc also did an MRI of my adrenal and carotid Artery to rule out Pheo as i had all the symptoms. My catacholamines bloods were normal. waiting on 2nd batch to come back.
Thank you for reading and sorry for the long post.
