Long story short.... Ive been an athelete my wholelife, Played college basketball for two years and have always been physically active. About 3 years ago now I was lifting and I felt extrmemly nauseated as If I had the flu, this continued for months and I lost over 40 lbs, went from 235 to about 190. I couldnt eat, couldnt sleep, and was nauseated all day.
I went to go see the Dr and he said that I had Anxiety and put me on lexapro, I insisted that I did not have anxiety but agreed to take the medicaiton any way. That only made things worse so I discontinued it becasue it made me feel worse. I saw many Drs after that and I've had almost every test in the book done.. the only thing that I was diagnosed with was a hormonal imbalance. I will post my results if any one can help that would be great.
Cold Basal Temp 97.2
Cortisol-8.7 in evening
My testosterone has always been low and estrogen has always been a little high if not very high. My IGF-1 has always been high I've had it tested 3x and it has always been abnormal. I had an MRI of the pituitary and it was flattened but no diagnosis of an Tumor, but also no diagnosis of empty sella syndrome. I am having another MRI the 22nd of October to see if there is anything abnormal with the pituitary. My guess is a microadenoma or something that is putting pressure on the pituitary gland causing an imbalance.
