Symptoms explained below.

Detailed Answer:
Hello and thanks for using HCM.

I have read your question and understand your concerns.

Pituitary tumor bleeding (or apoplexy) is a neurosurgical emergency.

Some patients may experience no symptoms, others may experience symptoms such sudden onset of headache, meningismus, visual impairment, and oculomotor abnormalities in varying combinations.

In such cases, ER evaluation is mandatory.

Hope you found the answer helpful.

Take care.
