Severe dry eyes and extreme fatigue

Hello. i am 39 years old. I have been suffering with extreme fatigue and painful dry eyes and difficuld sleeping, i always wake up after about 4 hours though i take sleeping pills alarmed and stressed. i have been to so many doctors who only wants to give me antidepressants and sleeping pills.This ha been going on for two years now. I have lost all hope that i can get better. my life is ruined. i know in my heart that this has something to do with my hormones and cortisol, but no one is listening. i did the test here and got 50%. Is it possible thar progesterone can help me?

Severe dry eyes and extreme fatigue
by: Wray

Hi Inga I feel it could help you. You might like to read this study here as it gives a list of risk factors, one of which is oestrogen therapy. To my mind it doesn't necessarily have to be oestrogen therapy i.e. HRT or Contraceptives, but oestrogen from the environment, or a lack of progesterone which leads to Oestrogen Dominance. Oestrogen also causes dry mouth and nose. In it's worst form, dry eyes are called Sjogren's syndrome. It's one of those 'autoimmune' conditions which no one knows much about. Least of all what to do about it beyond palliative care. But two things stand out for me. One, the ratio between women to men is 9:1, one of the highest of all autoimmune diseases. The other is high oestrogen levels, see here. These are three more papers on Sjogren's, see here, here and here. There are many symptoms associated with Sjogren's, but a long menstrual cycle >35 days and high prolactin levels is of interest to me. Prolactin is an inflammatory hormone, and a long menstrual cycle means more oestrogen is secreted in ratio to progesterone. Oestrogen raises prolactin levels. Two of the studies found significantly higher levels of prolactin. One of the studies found a much higher prolactin:progesterone ratio than controls. Plus the oestrogen:progesterone ratio was greater, this of course is a prime example of oestrogen dominance. If you do decide to try progesterone, please use enough as too little will cause oestrogen dominance. I feel you will need about 200mg/day. Please also read our page on How to use Progesterone Cream. As you could be in early Peri-menopause, please read this page. Take care Wray

to high cortsol levels and low testosterone levels
by: Anonymous

Hi, Yes Joy i did get your reply and thank ypu so much for that

i have not yet started using your progesterone, i think it is on its way to me. now i have found out that i have high levels of cortisol which is taking my sleep away from me and many other symptoms. and lov testosterone levels. Would progesterone help with that? Not anyone agree with that. And now my menustral cycle is unregular. When should i start using it... and i dont understand the mesurments of the cream. You recommended in another post 200... how many tbl. spoons is that?
thanks
love&light

to high cortisol levels and low testosterone levels
by: Joy

Hi Inga

I am pleased to hear that you received my email explaining things to you.

High cortisol occurs when we are stressed, progesterone is very calming so lessens the stress response. In part by reducing cortisol as it binds to the same receptor sites, in part by activating the GABA receptors. GABA is a very calming neurotransmitter. High cortisol suppresses the immune system. I would guess that you are not using enough progesterone cream. I am sure that when your Natpro does arrives you will notice a difference.

Have you had your Vitamin D level tested yet? As you live in Iceland you most probably are deficient which could account for your low testosterone level. I emailed you on the importance of Vitamin D.

Please read Wray's post to you again, see above, as she explains it all to you, i.e. the Peri-Menopause and How to use Progesterone Cream pages. Your menstrual cycle is irregular because of Peri-Menopause. I suggest that you start using progesterone straight away. Please use it every day with no stopping and ignore any bleeding/spotting/clotting that may occur, this is all explained on the pages given.

If you are battling to understand how to measure, get yourself a metric measuring teaspoon which is 5ml, 200mg is 6ml of cream. Look for the chart on How to use Progesterone Cream it explains it all there.

Take care.
Joy
