Does Progesterone help with Parasthesia?
I am 50 years old and a CFS sufferer. Over the past 3 weeks I have developed skin problems, after having an upper respiratory infection for about 3 months - I thought the itching in my ears was an allergy to something and part of the infection.
But I now have crawly, prickly skin all over my body and scalp especially at night - antihistamine tablets, natural tranquilisers, aromatherapy insomnia oils, nothing helping! Homeopath doctor not sure what is causing the Parasthesia (I get pins and needles in my fingers too) or Formication (crawling ant sensations). He has just agreed for me to start with Natural Progesterone cream. I am still mensturating and feel this may be perimenopause from what I have read. Please advise as I have only had one good nights sleep in these past few weeks!
