Episode Summary

The Woman with a Knife in Her Head
After several miscarriages, Amanda Coveler finally gives birth to a second daughter. However, she deals with fatigues; headaches; dry, dark patches on her skin; dry, brittle hair; and pain in her knees. Surprisingly, Amanda feels fine during her pregnancies, but unwell when she's not pregnant. Eventually, she learns that she has Hashimoto's disease, an autoimmune disease that attacks her thyroid gland. Anne Hummel, a happy mother of four, suddenly develops excruciating headaches and sinus infections, a runny nose, a metallic taste in her mouth, blurred vision, and the inability to move on her own. Her doctors believed she simply has sinusitis, but eventually, one doctor finds out that Anne actually has a cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leak.moreless
