Trouble restarting Progesterone
I was diagnosed with estrogen dominance and prescribed 25 mg progesterone last May. My doctors plan was to gradually increase until my symptoms went away. At around 100 mg all of my symptoms had pretty much disappeared except for some heart palpitations around the week before my period, so he increased me again to 125 mg. I took it for a few days and noticed I was a bit dizzy during the day but didn’t think much of it. Then I woke up one night with full on vertigo. Couldn’t even get out of bed. I stopped taking progesterone for 5 days and tried to resume again at just 25 mg.
Instead of helping so much like it previously had it made me angry, irritable and nauseous/dizzy. It also gave me diarrhea around 2-3 hours after I would take it. It’s now been a month since the vertigo episode and since I stopped progesterone and I’m still dizzy, floaty, and nauseated. I can’t recall the simplest of things and I can’t take any progesterone because every time I try to restart it I’m a raging, anxiety ridden, dizzy mess.
Anyone else have this happen? I’m due for bloodwork again next week but in the past everything else has been fine. Testosterone was a little low but everything else was pretty average. Thanks for any insight anyone may have!
