I am 45 yrs old and I am post menopausal as far as labs go. My fsh is 118.. I had a corpus luteum cyst /right ovary removed when I was 18. While starting infertility treatments six years ago, my fsh level was 30. At this time I also had my first seizure. My seizures occur when I ovulate. Since I am now on meds, the most I have had is an occasional focal seizure (wicked dejavu (sp?) feeling... auditory). My tsh is slightly elevated but all other thyroid function tests are well w/in normal. I will be having an eeg done to see if there is still seizure activity... there should not be if I am truly post meno and should not be ovulating anymore. I will have another fsh level done soon to see if it is still rising which is my guess. FINALLY the question: can anyone make heads or tails out of this? I believe that I am STILL ovulating due to the pain and discharge. Does anyone have a good understanding of the pituitary/ovarian/hypothal feedback system? And lastly, does anyone have any experience with fsh levels and ovarian cancer? It is very hard to get a primary , nuerologist, obgyn and endocrinologist to see the whole and not just the 'parts' of you.
