Hello! I have Catamenial Epilepsy and wonder why it's so

Hello! I have Catamenial Epilepsy and wonder why it's so hard to find a doc that takes this seriously. It is a very serious condition and every neurologist except for 2 have heard of it. Even though a million people in America have it, the docs are still ignorant of what to say to me. I've decided that I'm never going to another neurologist again. 20 is more than enough! They told me to go see my gyno, the gyno told me to go see my neuro and it's a viscous cycle. Can you give me any referrals at all to a hormone replacement doctor? I saw an endocrinologist today and he said he doesn't specialize in that field so..

I have been diagnosed with catamenial epilepsy. I used Epilex chrono 300 mg thrice a day for 6 months but that caused severe weight gain and hair loss. The doctor replaced it with Levipil 500 mg (twice a day) and Eption 100 mg (thrice a day). I am worried about the side effects of these medications. Will these provide any solution
