This sounds exactly like my story. I took ritalin from age 7 to 14 and also developed painful, half-dollar sized tissue behind my nipples when i was around 13 years old.I'm 31 years old and still suffer the process of hiding it. I started smoking marijuana when i was around 12 years old. It seems there's a link between smoking weed in puberty and GC. Sources i found stated weed increases estrogen levels, and can interfere with body development. I don't know if you smoked during puberty, but I am convinced that it's the cause of my problem. I've always been slim and muscular so obesity definitely isn't it. I want to have the surgery but it's too expensive for me right now. I'm curious what went wrong with your surgery as I'm going to have it eventually. Feel free to email me if you could tell me what the problem is.

I began taking Ritalin when I was about 9 years old up until I was 13-14 years old.
I actually never saw a difference in my studies but I was young so its hard to tell the difference anyways.
But what I did notice is when I was about 12 years old, seemingly overnight, I began to feel tissue growth around and behind my nipples which felt like medallions.
Eventually it grew a bit larger and I had to deal with alot of emotional issues, ridicule, teasing, and more because of it. Even my wardrobe had to be worked around it as I couldnt buy shirts where it would show.
Its important to note that I was always skinny and very slim (still am today) so it had nothing to do with weight.
I finally had surgery 3 years ago @ 29 years old and while the surgery went badly, at least I can wear clothes where it wont show.
Its interesting to know that this is likely the cause of my gynecomastia since its no one in my family has ever had this issue so its likely not genetic.
From this study (4 weeks ago):
Anxiety and paranoia are controlled. Night sweats numbness in fingertips. Feels like I can't breath yet oxygen levels are fine and lungs are getting air. Sometimes feel like I will pass out. Forget simple things and cant remember a day sometimes. Drop things occasionally. Ana tests and autoimmune blood tests were all negative. Kidney function tests have been a bit off 3 times now. Sometimes my eyes go funny and I can't see straight. Always tired no energy and always in pain
issues all over on Jun, 9, 2014:
So I too am having some weird things happening to me. I thought maybe it was side effects and that they would go away, however they seem to just be getting worse every day. I'm a 29 year old while female and have been taking this for a little under 6 months. About 2 months ago my finger tips and tips of my toes started feeling numb, 3 weeks ago I started feeling tired, really tired all the time no matter how much rest I was getting, and then started falling asleep while wide awake at work. I'm working on the computer and catch myself when my head drops, but I'm still typing my sentence, can still hear everything, sometimes I'm on hold with an insurance company and today, fell out of my chair. I also have lost too much weight, I feel like I'm always in pain, every thing hurts, and my eyes are doing something weird where they go crossed and I cant see straight. This keeps happening while I'm driving. I also am irratible with my family more often, cant concentrate at all, and I'm very forgetful, and I'm dizzy all the time like I'm not getting enough oxygen when I'm breathing just fine, it makes me feel like I'm going to pass out. My anxiety is under crontrol, but these things are really starting to scare me. I keep getting told I have to wein off the drug and moved to another state and so I don't have a new PCP, and the dr's office I tried to schedule with doesn't have an apt available for over a month.

Wow - I am a 43 yr old woman - your description of symptoms is mine - exactly - I would love to email or talk to hear some of what the doctors you go to are saying - mine all act like I'm a crazy hypochondriac. I have been through so many expensive test all to hear I am within the ranges of normal - but when I read - sometimes dependent on where you fall within normal and what some other level might be that they aren't looking at could spell big trouble - the mind issues, sight, and breathing issues concern me BAD - I feel like I am a time bomb just getting ready to blow - but if I can help the doctors discover what is wrong I might just save my own quality of life. It's not normal - I don't care what they say. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org if anyone has these symptoms and is dealing with doctors not listening.
