What treatment is suggested for pituatary adenoma and PCOS?

Hello and Happy New Year! I have been diagnosed with a pituitary adenoma (very small, around 3mm), and PCOS back in September. I've been on meds for these and since the meds started I have had no side effects, and my symptoms went away (biggest one being headaches with blurred vision, nausea and vomiting). Beginning of December I got a headache that didn't go away for almost 3 weeks. Also accompanied with blurred/cloudy vision, dizziness, and nausea/vomiting. The headaches have gotten better, but the cloudy vision has stayed. I had an eye exam a few months ago which showed that I had blind spots in my left eye, leading the neuro and eye doc to believe the adenoma was slightly pressing on the optical nerve. Problem is when I went back to my endo and neuro this past week and told them about the headaches, neither seemed to really care. I of course am concerned because I do not want to end up with permanent vision issues. Not to mention the headaches are not pleasant. I am due to deploy in the very near future and don't want to get somewhere and have an issue down the road. Is this something I need to push with my primary care doc and possibly get a new neurologist, or am I worried about probably nothing? Thank you in advance! - Jill
