Need thorough checkp: Fibroids may imply heavy bleeding, and anemia, fatigue, tiredness..Im not a Gyn , you need one. Why is prolactine high? Any meds? I would be concerned and agsin, best is to obtain a thorough gyn evaluation for correct diagnosis. And start treatment.

Depending on a lab's range of normal, prolactin levels in non-pregnant adult females can be up to 29 ng/ml. It fluctuates with the menstrual cycle & is highest in the luteal phase. With reported symptoms, if a repeat is still mildly ^ed, a doctor may choose to order a Free T4 & Ultrasensitive TSH to check thyroid function. I agree that other clinical & lab investigation is warranted.
