Hi Guys,
 
Just got my copy of the letter sent to my GP from the Headache Specialist.  It says that my blood tests confirm that I am post-menopausal, and everything else is normal.
 
However, the MRI was not completely clear. Here is the quote from the letter:
 
'The left side of the pituitary was felt to be a little bulkier than the right and there is a subtle deviation of the pituitary stalk towards the right.  It was felt that this was probably still within normal limits, but a small adenoma is possible.'
 
This maybe what is left of the tumour I had years ago that affected my infertility, which was treated at the time.  I look forward to discussing this with my Headache Specialist on Friday when I go back in for the day to be re-assessed, to see if it is having any impact on my headaches!!
 
take care
 
Ann

Hi Ann, you are really taking charge of your migraines. Good for you. It sounds scary but more than half the battle is finding out the "cause" of our migraines. What did the doctor who performed the MRI say? Keep us posted.

Ann, congratulations on the official confirmation of your entry into the realm of Wise Women.

There should be a ceremony, complete with owls and lovely food.

Hi Annuk,

That's so frustrating having to weight. That's my husband's birthday so maybe that's a good sign. :-) .
