Progesterone and seizures
Wray, I have had trouble since I was 38 years old. First I started aching all over, anxious, erratic painful periods with extremely heavy bleeding with clots, then I found a lump in my breast which soon turned into many, many lumps and I was diagnosed with fibrocystic breast condition.
From ages 4 to 8 I suffered with seizures, it seemed that they were more likely to occur at night but I did have them through the day also. At age 8 the Dr.put me on dilantan which ended my seizures. Even though the seizures ended I still suffered with the aura that you get before a seizure occurs. After the birth of my 2 children the auras stopped for years and I had already dc' d the dilantan. The Drs. told me after many eeg's that I did not have epilepsy as they could find no damage. All I know is that they are terrifying, I remember them well because I remember lost consciousness with them and now the auras are back.
I am now 51, went 11 months without a period before it started again, skipped 2 months before I had another one and now its been another 3 months without one. I read that progesterone was good for seizures. Any truth to that ? I ordered Natpro and have been sleeping better. I've only experienced the auras twice since starting it. I've only used it for 4 days so far so maybe its just wishful thinking on my part. I'm using 1 tsp a day - I divide it am and pm. I also haven't had a sex drive since I was about 40. Am I on the right track here? Thanks,
