I've been having headaches (maybe migraines) that can last up to a month at a time. I just started seeing a endocrinologist about the problem. He hasn't checked my female hormones yet, since the regular blood test showed high liver levels because I was taking LOTS of Tylenol. I quit the Tylenol, the liver tests came back fine and no headaches for an entire month. He assumed all my problems were from the Tylenol, but the day after my appointment - the headache is back. It seems to start about 2 days before my period and goes until I start having the killer menstrual cramps (usually 2 weeks before my period). I am 45, periods sometimes skip a month or I have 2 per month.
Anybody else suffer from these headaches? Anything help to alleviate them? Why am I affected 1 month, but not the next?
I have uterine cysts too (1 as large as a golf ball), but was told they don't cause any problems (I don't have any excess bleeding). So we are just watching it for now. TIA
