So i finialy found out why im lactating. Went to the doctor monday and he said i have prolactinoma witch is a small tumor on the pituitary gland. so he is sending me for a MRI of my brain to see the size of the tumor and from there options to controll it will be given. If anyone notices they are lactating with out being preg or ever been preg dont just waite for it to eventually fade away go get blood work done to find the problem. my doctor said my prolactin levels are as high as a 20 week pregnancy should be.

There is a woman on here..Runnershirl...i think is her name and she has the same thing, maybe you could chat with her a little. You can find her on the TWW thread.

So sorry to hear you are going through this. I think I seen your post on a different thread asking about lactation and pregnancy. When I read your post a tumor popped into mind. I hope all works out for you and they get rid of the nasty tumor! Is it benign or do you know yet?
