Tumor vs Bipolar = Confusion

I have battled bipolar disorder all my life with many obstacles. My worst issues have been irritability, depression and spending money along with addictions for 30 years. At one point I was naive and thought I had cured a majority of it through meditation. Meditation and prayer has helped tremendously but there is no such cure, yet.

A year before I found out about my pituitary tumor in 2015, I began to have more health issues than normal. The strangest was the brain zaps I was experiencing. It feels like electricity running through your brain. I later found out that they were mini seizures. Thank God I don’t have then as frequently as I did for about 4 years, every few minutes. Some days I don’t have one at all now.

A year ago, I began to become sensitive to just about everything. Fabric, noise, taste, touch it all bothered me to the point that I could scream. Staying in bed depressed was not something I enjoyed either with tears steadily rolling down my face. I was put on Vraylar for the bipolar about 6 months ago. Now most of these problems that bothered me so, have disappeared.

This lead to quite a bit of confusion over many months. I’m unable to distinguish the difference between what is caused by the bipolar and what is caused by the pituitary tumor.
