What could be the reason for small amounts of breast milk and irregular periods and is MS related to it?

hi I was dx with MS last march but I also have a problem with small amounts of breast milk and very irregular menstrual periods, I was wondering if it could be related since my blood test for prolactin was in normal range. could there be another reason for this? I am not pregnant or breast feeding. also in the past my glands all over my body would swell and be come painful. I had my tonsals removed 3 years ago since then no swelling glads but everynow and then have large amounts of tissue or something fall from behind my nose into the back of my mouth

Small amount of breast milk is commonly due to hormonal imbalances, medicine side effects, elevation in the production of prolactin in the brain cells (Hyperprolactinaemia).

Irregular periods are commonly due to aging, thyroid problems, hormonal issues, anemia, polycystic ovary syndrome, etc.

You are suggested to get physically examined & get all the medical problems assessed, detected & treated at the earliest.

Since you have symptoms of discharge from nose into the throat you should get physically examined by an ENT, get X-Ray PNS done to detect any pathology or malignancy in the Nasal cavity & Paranasal Sinuses.

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