Hi, I have just been diagnosed with hypothyroidism (autoimmune). The chap who scanned my thyroid said it has been in decline for years. Thinking back, I have never been able to breastfeed my children(aged 18, 16 and 8) and know that milk production can be regulated by your pituatory gland - i have never been able to produce breast milk and perservered with breastfeeding, but failed due to lack of milk. So I am wondering if my thyroid problem is due to a pituatory gland problem, and how this can be diagnosed. Also, I have developed a tick in my left eye (for 3 months now) - can this also be realted to my pituatory gland. I have been started on 50 mg of thyroxin. Any advice would be welcome, thanks
