Hello,

It is not usual for high prolactin levels to cause joint pains. Arthritis may cause such issues. Instead, you should be evaluated with brain MRI with gadolinium and visual field, in order to evaluate a possible pituitary adenoma. Discuss with a Neurosurgeon for these issues.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,

I am a 53/male and I have had 7 back surgeries and I am a chronic pain patient for 27 years now. About 10 years ago, I was started on methadone for pain. A very high dose because of my high tolerance of pain meds. I have recently over the past 6 years reduced my dosage to 60 to 90mg a day. I was on 120mg a day. I take 60 mgs a day more than the higher dose now. A month ago I was diagnosed with a 1cm prolactinoma and my prolactin level was at 203. My question is, did the methadone cause this?

I have high prolactin levels (45-75) and have been post menopausal for 7 years. I have breast pain, galactorrhea, headaches 24/7/365 due to the microprolactinoma 1x2x3 mm. I eliminated any meds that could increase the levels four years ago. I only take atenolol and Panhematin for AIPorphyria. Ideas on foods that might drive the levels up?
