I'm a 23-year-old woman who suffers from migraine headaches and has an NOS mood disorder. With these headaches, I'm very sensitive to sound; but without the headaches, people can't even talk to me in my left ear.

I was given migraine medications since the normal painkillers won't do it. Small problem--neither will the migraine medications. I will get them for a week straight. I get confused, and my memory's shot as well.

On top of this, I've noticed that my arms get numb in the morning. It goes away fairly quickly, but that has never happened before. Also, I have whiskers (I guess you can call them that) on the left side of my face, and my chin, my periods are extremely heavy--literally, I'm draining anytime I go to the bathroom. As a result of the heavy periods, I am anemic.

I don't know if all this is connected. But it's making very concerned, and I'm getting very little answers.
