Anxiety and plugged ears
I was put on 100 mg of oral progesterone about 6 weeks ago. About 4 weeks in I developed terrible anxiety accompanied by shortness of breath. I went to the ER but they said it had nothing to do with my progesterone. After reading your articles,I've increased my dosage to 100 mg twice per day but am still experiencing anxiety with shortness of breath and now have a stuffy nose at night with a plugged left ear and fatigue. I've ordered the cream and will start using it as soon as it arrives. Should I stay at 100mg twice per day and endure? Last night I took an additional 50mg of progesterone that had been compounded in an effort to relieve my symptoms but it only aggravated my anxiety! I've had a rough night. I'll call my doctor tomorrow but do you have any advice or encouragement? Btw my estrogen when I started therapy was 51.3 pg/mL and my progesterone was .6 ng/mL and my free testosterone is 2.3 of/mL.
