I am at my wits end...please help
(Johannesburg, South Africa)
I pray you can help with some advise.
I have been battling for 2 and a half years now and as you can imagine I am at my wits end.
I had a grand mal seizure 3 weeks after my daughter was born. I do not suffer epilepsy. This is where all my suffering started. I went for tests and everything came back normal. I was then put on an anti-depressant and benzodiazipine. Things got a little better but there were always underlying issues that I at the time attributed to side effects from the meds I was on.
I weaned off the medication and all my symptoms came back with a vengeance.
My symptoms are as follows:
Feeling spaced out
Tingles over my body
I had my hormones checked and the doctor found that my progesterone was non existent and my cortisol levels are high.
I started 100mg utrogestan a day about 2 weeks ago.
Things have just gotten worse. i am pretty much bed ridden and spend my days crying and fighting anxiety and negative thoughts.
Should I switch to the cream and should I increase my dose.
How long can I expect before I feel better. This has been going on for so long and I feel like my life is falling apart.
