Progesterone bad effects?
I was placed on bio-identical progesterone (troches) about a year and a half ago. I took it for the two weeks leading up to my period for three months. Almost immediately I began getting anxiety (for the first time in my life), panic attacks, and racing heart. It took me over a year after stopping to stop feeling anxiety before my period. I have been using Vitex which has worked well to increase my progesterone levels, and I was able to get pregnant but miscarried last year (I have other health issues), but while pregnant I had really strong heart palpitations daily. I have also started getting acid reflux before my period (I have read this is progesterone related).
I have read other women's stories of this happening to them, but no one has an answer as to why I got anxiety and racing heart problems. My other hormone levels are all normal.
Any answers would be greatly appreciated!
