Peri-menopause and seizures
About 2 years ago I started having very strange "disconnect" on my right side. It was really scary. I had an MRI and there was nothing abnormal about it. I started going to a specialist and he put me on anti-seizure and anxiety medication.
I was keeping track of the "disconnect" and started noticing a pattern - it was happening approximately 2 days before my period. I went to my gynecologist and I told her what was going on and she said that when you begin peri-menopause you can actually have seizures. I did blood work to check my progesterone levels but they came back fine, but again two days before my period I had a "disconnect". I am going to give my gynecologist a call, she said that if this continues she would put me on progesterone.
I am hoping this will help. It has been two long years of wondering what in the world is wrong with me. My gynecologist actually got me in contact with a lady in my area that has had contact with a doctor in Boston that has been doing a study about seizures and peri-menopause. It was a relief to find out that I am not crazy. Hope this helps someone else out there! Also, I am only 41 years old and have been told by several people that I am too young to be in the beginning stages of menopause - apparently not.
