Could a prolactin lvl of 26 ug/L in a male cause sleep disturbances? Also, is FSH <2 IU/L and total test of 11 nmol/L normal for a 19 y/o male?

Could a prolactin lvl of 26 ug/L in a male cause sleep disturbances? Also, is FSH <2 IU/L and total test of 11 nmol/L normal for a 19 y/o male?

Not right: Hi. No, those labs are definitely not normal. That prolactin (PRL) is not causing an undetectable FSH and vanishingly low testosterone. Could measure PRL at 1:100 & 1:1000 dilution ("J effect"). There could be a pituitary stalk effect. Many other things possible too. Will need pituitary MRI. Did puberty ever start, to did it start then stop? Do you wake up to pee? See a good endocrinologist. ...Read more

Can brain tumor cause full body aches and twiching also sleep disturbances wake up every 3h did spine MRI neuro blood eyes test all good...?

Can brain tumor cause full body aches and twiching also sleep disturbances  wake up every 3h did spine MRI neuro blood eyes test all good...?

Not likely.: This does not fit the typical presentation of a brain tumor. That would be headache, vision change, or even more likely, a gait disturbance. It still might be one, but highly unlikely. More likely, is something like a nerve compression, or seizure, or some other illness. You really should see a neurologist for a full work-up urgently as this can still be serious and result in permanent damage. ...Read more
