I am a 39yo female.
A year and a half ago, I started having periods every other week. Hormones tested normal. Endometrial biopsy normal. The very next month, I started having menstrual migraines.
Fast forward May this year. The day I should have started my period, I ended up in the ER. I thought I was having a stroke. Had electrical shocks in my head, bad headache, nervous shaking, high blood pressure. This was unlike my normal migraines but they insisted that it was a migraine. Saw a Neuro who did MRI, CT, EEG, all normal. Started anti seizure meds for migraine prevention. I felt worse. Stopped taking meds after 34 days.
No period in May or June . Started last week in July.
Day 3 Estadiol <20 FSH 58. Started on prempro.
Symptoms on a daily basis...
Dizzy, vertigo, headache like head is being squeezed in a vice, eye pressure, numbness and tingling in extremities, new motion sickness while driving, nauseated, exhaustion, muscle aches, brain fog.
Also, on a daily basis very predictable...
EXTREME adrenaline rush, uncontrollable need to shake, fast heart rate, high blood pressure, crushing headache. These episodes are very predictable and last an hour each. First episode starts about 45 min to an hour after I wake up. Next episode starts between 1 and 3, and then again between 7 and 9 at night. I do not have "hot flashes" or "night sweats".
Say gyno, switched me to Estratest. Still bleeding every other week. Doing a 24 hour urine for pheo. Thyroid, B12, Folate levels fine.
Is this just POF or is there something else I should be tested for? Any suggestions? Thanks.
