Swelling never ends
I am 28 with thyroid issues and to boot had very low progesterone. My do doctor prescribed 100mg oral prometrium but the first few days of taking it were miserable, I could hardly function or stay awake. So she said I could prick the pill and use it topically.
From there things were great, my weight was practically falling off, I had great energy and things seemed to be falling into place with my cycle.
Push forward 5 months to January and all of a sudden it was if it was not working anymore. So we bumped to 200mg and everything went crazy. My feet and legs were so swollen they were painful, my abdomen distended, my breasts were huge and my face puffy.
This is what I have been battling for the last 7 months with no wins. We have even gone to a compounded version so we could play with the dose better. Nothing works. I swell up like a balloon with even the slightest amount of progesterone in my system.
