Hi mel,

Think of stress as a garden hose. If you are watering the garden and there is no knot or kink in the hose the water flows beautifully.

If the hose is twisted or knotted then there is ONLY a trickle of water.

So what's my point?

As the Doc told you 18 is normal. That means that the water is flowing through the hose unditurbed in a healthy way.

33 means that there is a hicup in your life and like the twisted hose your are out of balance not flowing naturally which is an unhealthy state.

So whatever your are worrying about or what challenges you are having in your life at the moment are probably causing your prolactin level to be very high.

I hope this helps. 

Peace.
