I am 39 years old and have virtually every symptom of 'estrogen dominance'. I am also taking an enormous level of calcium supplements (prescribed by my doctor) as I recently suffered with hypocalcemia, and my body seems to really struggle with calcium uptake.This has been a problem for 6 months.
I am chronically fatigued and have constant mild depression, even though I take Venlafaxine which has always relieved my depression in the past. Can low calcium be linked with estrogen dominance? Also, I am petrified of starting the progesterone cream as I am holding this as the answer to my health problems, in the main, and if it doesn't help me I feel I'll have exhausted every avenue. I am pretty desperate and am only managing to work (part-time) because my job is very physically undemanding. I am not a patch on the person I used to be. Thank you for taking the time to read this. Please advise me.
