Are there any hormones that are secreted or stop being secreted when one is tired or sleepy? Could any of those cause hunger/tremor?
Yes: There are hormones that overlap what you are describing: thyroid and cortisol come to mind. But perhaps more likely you have significant fluxes in blood sugar due to insulin surges related to excessive refined carbs. I would start by eating several small meals throughout the day: limiting carbs and being sure protein is in every meal. Your doc can check labs to help narrow this down ...Read more

What an odd question: The role of neurotransmitters in myoclonus is still under study. What you're describing can be caused by problems elsewhere in the body, and in fact very often is. The brain is just an unfortunate bystander. The underlying cause is what needs to be found. See your doctor and let him/her figure it out. And I'm afraid if you bring up neurotransmitters, you'll probably just get a blank stare. ...Read more

Are there any medical conditions (not psychological) that make the body over-sensitive to adrenaline?
Adrenaline: Not sure if this is what you are looking for, as I am not clear on your question. Where are you exposed to adrenaline that makes you think you are oversensitive to it? Rarely, a tumor of the adrenal glands, called pheochromocytoma, can release high levels of hormones such as adrenaline in the blood and cause hypertension attacks. ...Read more
Maybe nothing: There are physiologic reasons why the pituitary may swell, such as pregnancy, hypothyroidism, adolescence. The questions i would ask: is there any hormone disorder? Is there any other abnormality noted on the mri? Was this a "pituitary mri"? Did the radiologist misinterpret this? Many questions. See an endocrinologist, certainly before anything invasive is done. ...Read more
