In brief: Pituitary enlargemen

One possible explanation is an enlargement of the pituitary gland and the cells that make a hormone called prolactin.
This hormone is normally increased in pregnancy and breastfeeding. If elevated at other times, the symptoms you describe along with a decrease in the range of vision, especially laterally, can also be noted. You should seek medical care immediately to have the proper testing pe.
