    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Flattened Pituitary, is there an expert page?
    Anon_41638 posted:
    incidental "empty sella turcica" is
    visible with the pituitary gland compressed against the sellar
    on my MRI report.
    I have found medical journal entries but no patient documentations on the internet.
    have seen explanations that its...." when a woman is obese" (thanks but I have been active my whole life and I am over weight but not sitting on couch eating bon bons )
    possible past cyst or csf pressure resulting in flattening to malformations.

    is there an expert on the board anywhere..

    Hiya and welcome,

    We do have a Women's Health Community you are welcomed to join in and ask for support there.

    But it's something you should talk to your doctor about. Share you concerns and questions with him/her as well.
    Good Luck and Good health,
    WebMD Community Staff
