With regard to where do you start, what do you do to get treatment, etc., firstly can I ask, have you had an Brain MRI ? If you have, was there any mention of an empty sella (or partially empty sella) because the ‘sella’ is a bony chamber where the pituitary gland sits and an empty sella suggests a flattened pituitary and a flattened pituitary gland can cause strange thyroid abnormalities. Secondly, if you have had an MRI, do you have a copy ? If not, I suggest you get a copy and compare it with the illustrations in Dr Diana Driscolls Theory.
If you haven’t had an MRI yet, I suggest that’s where you start. I think you have adequate reason for requesting one, as you have migraines, headaches and possible pituitary malfunction, you also have many of the neurological symptoms of EDS, so that’s a further reason to get one.
When you get hold of it, check for ‘External Communicating Hydrocephalus’ because if you have that, it’s imperative that you reduce the level of CSF that is causing pressure on your brain, which should lead to a reduction in symptoms, as per Dr Diana Driscolls Theory.
