I seem to have a paradoxical effect from progesterone
I was diagnosed with premature ovarian failure 8 years ago and started HRT 2 years ago. I had estradiol and progesterone cream from a compounding pharmacy. Everything seemed fine for the first year besides tweaking the RX every few months. I woke up one am and had horrible acid reflux and have been fighting it ever since. I went off the hormones for awhile to see if they were causing it but I couldn't stand the symptoms so I got back on them. The problem is I can't get back to a balanced level and I now seem to have a paradoxical reaction from progesterone. I get this crazy, restless anxiety feeling and horrible insomnia. Every doc says keep raising your progesterone levels but I can't cause the feeling gets worse. Just wondering if anyone has had this problem? I have had my labs done and they show very low levels in progesterone and estradiol.
