Depression and Cognitive Fuzziness
I am a 42 year old white female. I had a bad fall in 2005 which they called a traumatic brain injury. Since then I've suffered with depression, lethargy and cognitive fuzziness. Someone told me progesterone is being used for brain injury patients. I was wondering if you could tell me what you know about using progesterone for brain injury. I walk and talk fine. I just have a great deal of problems with fatigue/fuzziness.
In addition, I have always had heavy periods and bad PMS. It says to stop the progesterone when you get your period and resume again afterwards. But I just read on your sight that a woman is using it to stop her heavy periods by putting it on when she has her period.
Can you clarify for me. I get terrible moodiness/cramping/sadness and sometimes migraines during PMS (no problems with bloating I don't think. I have always been underweight so bloating doesn't matter to me). Then I am terribly wiped out when I have my period because it is so heavy.
Thanks for any help you can give me.
