high fsh, tsh

Hi,
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.

Any input would be great.
