Hi Gracie's mom,
Thank you so much for your reply. I didn't think anyone was going to even give me a little encouragement on this topic!
I did get my progesterone results back, and they are at post menopausal levels. So that said, it's likely that my other hormones will come back like that too. I have to wait for my period to come in order to do the next tests (day 3 of period). But it's late, again! No surprise there.
I am really wondering about the link between temporal lobe seizures and hormone imbalances. The pituitary and hypothalmus are right there. They control the hormones, but the ovaries send out the signal to the pituitary and hypothalmus FIRST. So, who knows eh!
I'm sorry to hear that your daughter is dealing with so much. Lyme disease is awful and hard to treat sometimes. It often mimics lupus and vice versa.
I think the fact that Grace is having an ovarian cyst bleed will rule out any seizure involvement with her missed periods. Sounds to me like a complete gynecological issue. But still worth asking about for sure.
Thanks again for your reply. I really appreciate it. It's hard to go through this feeling alone. Just having you say hello and offering some encouragement means a lot to me. Thank you!
