peri-menopause and insomnia
I'm 46 year old female, and I started having severe peri-menopause symptoms since August of 2013. It was so bad the first 3 months I made to ER 3 times. I thought there was something wrong with my heart, and then it was extreme anxiety. My Doc gave me anti depressant and sleeping pills which didn't help at all. I started taking Black Cohosh and I was getting better slowly, very slowly. My insomnia was still intolerable at times and I've tried hypnotherapy as well as acupuncture but it was a little or no help. I found out about Progesterone cream a couple months ago, and started using it at a low dose (40mg~80mg/day) and it helped with my sleep the first month fro about 2 weeks. Then I stopped using cream for my cycle, and I had a really bad time during my cycle. I restarted after 5 days, but this time progesterone didn't help at all. I came across your website, and started using more cream 100mg~200mg which made my symptoms worse. Now my insomnia is worse than ever. I can't hardly sleep. So desperate, I started using 400mg since yesterday. I had NO SLEEP last night. I'm going to continue using 400mg from now on and see if it'll help. Can anyone tell me this will really help me? Please I need some hope to get through this difficult time! I'll appreciate any comments!
