Progesterone side effects?
Hi, I am 48 and for the past 2 yrs, I have had blood tests that either say I am in menopause(FSH is 40 or more) and no testosterone OR tests show I am estrogen dominant with no progesterone and no testosterone.
So I was put on progesterone oral 100 mg daily and initially felt calmer, had fewer abnormal heartbeats but weird feelings in my legs, muscle spasms and then joint pain and numbness and tingling in my right hand and feet. Pain got worse as my fingernails became thinner and broke/split/peeled easily and then hot flashes!. Some itching too. I finally stopped progesterone and pain calmed down but hot flashes are still here. I am frustrated.
Is progesterone the miracle everyone touts but just not for me?
