So out of control -need help making sense of labs and what is wrong
(Birmingham, al )
51 years old, great health, only 2 periods in last 9 months. Symptoms before meds: sleepless nights for months, back pain, racing mind, tingling in legs at night, belly weight (15 lbs in last year), lethargy, hair thinning and blah.
Doctor put me on 100mg of progesterone and testosterone cream daily, vitamin d, iron, 2.5 DHEA and thyroid support vitamins about 2 months ago. Recent labs show, estradiol is 19.9, progesterone is 4.9, esterone is 12.3, testosterone is 35.
Since meds, sleep is still an issue, racing mind and back aches have stopped, belly weight is still there. See doctor tomorrow, so confused if my estrogen is too high or too low. Should I be taking estrogen with progesterone if I am not having a period?
