Raised blood pressure cause by Progesterone or Oestrogen dominance??
Please could you help me out with the use of progesterone cream as im a bit confused and not very confident about using it. Basically, i purchased the cream because ive got a uterine fibroid and have been experiencing heavy periods every three week. My breasts seem to have grown but are painful and sore (im not pregnant!) and i have also gained weight which i cannot shift. I'm 45 years of age. Other than this i didn't have any other problems or symptoms.
I read on here that you said if you rub the cream on the place where you are having problems this seems to help, so i started to rub the cream on my breasts and over my uterus area, plus other areas such as neck, chest, wrists. After the third day of using the cream, i woke up in the middle of the night with my heart pounding and a headache! Of course i didnt link it to the cream at the time, i just took my lavender essential oil and rubbed it over my chest, wrists and temples as i know that lavender lowers blood pressure and i eventually went back to sleep. The next day i put the cream on again as normal and carried on with my day, but i didn't really feel very good and my breasts seemed so hard and sore. That night the same thing happened again and it dawned on me that it could be cream! I haven't used it now for a few of days, but my breasts are still so sore and hard and for some very strange reason i keep getting heart palpatations each evening until i use my lavender oïl again.
I'm panicking now that ive somehow caused myself to have high blood pressure and im stuck with these very painful breasts! So now i dont know whether i should put more cream, less cream, no cream or what to do. Please can you help me Wray and advise me what to do next? Regards,Clare
