Lots of syptoms, feeling bad and doctors dont see anything wrong
Hi Wray, A friend followed your advice and is a totally different person so she suggested I see your opinion.
For about a year I have started adding weight (although my diet is very sensible, lots of veggies, fruits, juices etc), terrible dark-blueish-purple rings under my eyes, hair is falling.. and then loss of libido, dryness, tender breasts before period (I used to have that before, but while it was more of 'tension' a week before period, now it pains)... and some hair growth on my chin.
Of course doctor said I look fine, I should exercise more and gave me blood tests (the standard ones nothing hormonal).. I decided to have my hormones tested: I have been trying to work out the estrogen:progesterone ratio but I'm quite confused as the progesterone level is a range rather than a value <0,20ng/ml.
Blood tests, not saliva (didn't know about saliva), about 5-7th day.
DHEA-S 127,00 ug/dl
Prolactine 246,00 mIU/L
Testosterone 0,78 ng/ml
free Testosterone 1,18 pg/ml
17-alphahidroxiprogest 0,43 ng/ml
FSH 6,41 mIU/ml
LH 26,40 mIU/ml
From what I have been reading I see LH is quite high compared to FSH.. I have had scans for my ovaries, full gyno check.. no cysts, no problem there, all fine.. YET.. im not feeling well, and no dr seems to pay attention to my symptoms. Afterall I know my body and its signs depending on the moment of the month quite well..
I'm getting depressed, dr won't refer me to an endocrinologist... and I'm stuck.. don't know what to take, what not to take.. at the moment I'm on Q10, vit C and Omega 3 and vit E and that's about it.
Glycemia came normal too (fasting one) at 76,4 mg/dl, all other blood ones and vit+minerals are within normal range too.
Thanks and keep going with this.
