I am 31 and I've been suffering from intense brain fog that started two weeks after I stopped taking the Birth Control Pill eight months ago. My vision is hazy and my thoughts are not clear and I have to put a lot more energy into simple things like conversations. Some other symptoms I have are fatigue, and somewhat erratic menstrual cycles. For example, I am on day 40 of my cycle today and have had cycles ranging in length from 30-60 days when off the Pill.
A few months ago I finally saw a decent doctor who tested my thyroid and put me on natural (dessicated) thyroid medication, but the brain fog continued. Was tested and found to have low cortisol, but I started treatment for that, too, with no success. I have also gone gluten-free so see if that would work, but the brain fog remained.
Just today, I got my natural progesterone cream in the mail so I've started on it. I am starting to feel like this is my last hope as I have no idea where to go next if this doesn't work.
Has anyone else been in a similar situation? Or does anyone have any more guesses as to what is going on with me? Also, how long until I see any effects from the progesterone cream (if it works for me at all, that is...).
Thanks for any help or support!
