I dont know if you can help me but I have nothing to lose at this point. I am a 51 year female going through menopause. At 44 i was perimenopausal. This may be complicated. Bear with me. At the age of 7 I incurred a skull fracture in the left temporal lobe with a concussion due to a bicycle accident. I recovered, but was considered aloof by my teachers in elementary school. In puberty I experienced every other month extreme menstrual cramps. Motrin didn't work. My sister in law gave me 2 shots of whiskey. That was the only thing thing that worked. My breast started to develop normally, then decreased in size. About 15 I developed hair on them and have since gone to electrolosis. I am fair skinned, not of mediteranian origin. I have a history of miscarriage and lack of conceiving, however I am blessed with 2 children, good healthy children that I naturally conceived at the age of 30/31. There is more. Unfortunately, due to my HMO I have established a mental health history which my husband of 30 years and I believe is incorrect. I went after the birth of my second child. I have also gone to neurologists. As a teenager, I could not gain weight. At times, i lack concentration, I have insomnia, I have randomly ringing in my left ear since I was a teenager. I sneeze when eating certain foods, especially at restaurants. i know I cant take MSG. At randon times eye focusing is difficult. I wear glasses since 16.I confuse my left side and right side at times. An EMG revealed that my right arm is 30% stronger than my left. I am left handed. The local endocrinologist will not take me as a patient since my mother never took me to one before. I dont have an established endocrinology history. I have minor symptoms and now vertically oriented calification over the posterior paraspinous soft tissue associated with the dorsal spinous process.. something call heterotopic ossification related to a prior ligamentous injury. Unfortunately, due to the mental health history,which my husband and I believe is incorrect, I am now experiencing communication problems with my current doctors. Please advise.

Hello mam,
Thank you for your query.
I can tell you that the impact you had in your childhood is playing an important role at present in your life.
The first thing you need to do is being brave to face the situation.But the truth is there is nothing much to worry about your health condition as if now nothing significant organic lesion is pointing out at your current symptoms.The only thing i noticed in your history is that you are experiencing communication problems with your doctors.But as if i can see in your history you gave a very detailed description of each and every aspect of your life.
The best treatment for you in my knowledge is cognitive behavioral therapy.Consult a psychiatrist for further details about that which might help you.
I observed in your history that your are very good in explaining things clear so just consult your doctor and communicate with him in the same manner you did it here.Hope your problem will be solved soon with help of your doctor too.If needed they may also advice you to have a CT scan or MRI brain to know in detail if there is something important to know about.

Hope i answered your question.
Please let me know if you have further queries.

Wish you a good health.Take care.
Thank you.
