Post hysterectomy Tingling with HRT

(Santa Rosa Beach, fL )

To make a very long story short: hysterectomy 3/1/14, placed on Minivelle Patch 1.0 mg. 45 days post op my skin felt like I had bugs under it. My hands, feet, legs, face, and buttocks would tingle to the point of making me crazy. I finally had estrodiol levels checked and my levels were 141. My progesterone was .2. My doc switched me to Enjuvia .09.
The tingling subsided for about 30 days then it started again. Three weeks ago I went to see an HRT doc. Labs repeated and this time my estrodiol was 17.6 and progesterone .2. I stopped all pharmaceutical meds and switched to a compounded tablet. It contains : 4 mg of E3 .05 E2 and 80 mg of PG. This is a rapid dissolve tablet.

First night on new meds within 1 hour of taking tablet my tingling started. Along with it comes heart palpatations, and lack of sleep.
The palpatations are not new, just frustrating. I have had maybe one hot flash the entire time, so I guess I am lucky. I am desperate for answers on this side effect, that is now controlling my universe. If anyone has any feedback it would be greatly appreciated.

You are suffering from Oestrogen Dominance symptoms and taking HRT is adding to your adverse symptoms. All drug based HRT's have a potential to cause harm and we do not believe that any women needs to take extra estrogen as there is over 100 estrogen mimics in our environment at is it, please read Our Stolen Future. Any form of oral progesterone is not the best delivery method as 96% gets destroyed by the gut and liver, please consider changing to a cream which has the correct progesterone concentration. How to use Progesterone Cream will also help you.

If your Hot Flushes increase, please read the page on it. Do you know what your Vitamin D level is, as a deficiency reduces the benefits of progesterone.

I am taking Bioidentical hormones. These meds are compounded for me based on my labs. I am taking progesterone as well. The tingling occurs when I take anything.
