Hi, My name is Jennifer I am currently 18, and when i was 16 i was diagnosed with a pituitary adenoma (5mm)... just TODAY i was at a wedding reception and i just found out i had my period and so abruptly started getting stomach pains i went outside and i didnt make it i collapsed on the floor and was semi-unconcious until a few hours in the ER i was diagnosed with the same thing the vaso whatever he said that the pain in my stomach sent a message to glads in my neck that my heart rate is up so my body tried to slow down my heart rate (even though my heart rate was normal) so it went below normal and blood stopped flowing to my brain and i fainted. I have never fainted in my life and i usually do not have that kind of pain during my periods... i was looking online and found your question, but the ER doctor said he doesnt think its related to my tumor... i wanna know your daughters story and ask if you know for sure they were related and how she would faint if thats ok with you... thank your for your time Jennifer
