Brain Atrophy? what in the World would you do? Anyone else have this?

It sounds like the 3-5 years of migraines were your brain getting insufficient blood flow, which might result in some atrophy. "

How is your nutrition? 41 is early for menopause, unless you mean pre-menopause was just starting. about magnesium deficiency, chronic sinus conditions, etc. "Poor nutrition and exceptional stress can bring on an earlier menopause."

Here's a site on brain atrophy: . It's the "official" government National Institutes of Health. Notice that they don't say anything about brain atrophy being due to a psychiatric condition...

That being said, prolonged stress elevates your cortisol which affects brain cells negatively. And it sounds like you've had your share.

Please take care of yourself and find ways to reduce your stress: gather power from information, get gentle treatments without side effects (you might try osteopathy), and enjoy your animals. Perhaps when you're ready there are injured youngsters without families nearby who would welcome a visit.

Take heart: even we "Bear(s) of Very Little Brain" can, like Pooh, work with whatever happens in everyday life and make smiles.
