Help! I feel depressed, unhappy and want my life back!
I am 45 years old and been experiencing symptoms for the last 5 years and I am at my wits end! I have experienced a lot of stress with the death of both my parents, my job as well as being a wife and mother of 3 girls. All I do is work and then want to be home in my bed. Then I just read and investigate everything I can find on the Internet to try and figure out how to get myself better. From what I have read and learned I am prime opaque and have adrenal fatigue. I have been on natural progesterone cream for a couple years but, after reading your website it appears to me I have not been taking enough and have not been consistent with it. I am currently on natural progesterone from a compound pharmacy and I take about 25-50mg a day...some days up to 100mg. But on days I don't feel too bad I don't take it or forget to take it. My symptoms are anxiety, panic attacks, fatigue, depression, dizziness, no libido, numbness and tingling in arms hands feet legs, clumsiness, night sweats, insomnia, high and low blood sugar issues, loss of appetite, and pains in my bones and joints that come and go. My periods are fairly consistent at 28-30 days and lasting 5 days. But I have recently experienced having a period every 2 weeks for 2 months. After reading your website I am considering switching to Natpro and would like your suggestion on how to switch and how much to take. I am also taking 8000iu of vitamin D as my level is only at 40 and I use topical magnesium oil about 300mg day which seems to help calm me down. I also take an EmergenC 1000mg with 1/2 tsp Celtic sea salt everyday. I do notice the progesterone cream helps but some days it makes me feel worse. I guess because I'm not taking enough. I recently had a saliva test thru ZRT. My Estradiol was 1.0 pg/ml (which says "low"), progesterone 338 pg/ml, testosterone 32, DHEAs 7.9, morning Cortisol 8.7 (which says high). I would love your help and suggestions!
