I have been on HRT for 15 years (early menopause). Lots of hype, etc from GP who said they would not prescribe it any more. I came off it (not in the best way) 2 years ago. It has been the worst two years in respect of symptoms. I have about 8 heavy flushes a night, I have not had a night's sleep. During the day I am having about 20 flushes. They are almost constant and severe. So I went back to the GP and said I cannot go on like this. My health is suffering, not to mention the palpitations when I am having a flush. (I think I had 2-3 whilst talking to him). My heart rate shoots up from 76 t0 anywhere between 101 - 147 bpm. Anyway, he has agreed to me going back onto HRT.
First few weeks in and I am having second thoughts. The flushes, etc are all still as bad but now I have swollen, lumpy, sore breasts and I am worried as I can't seem to read anything that puts my mind at rest about being on it. I've tried all the alterative remedies, to no avail. I would just welcome people's thoughts and shared experiences please? Thank you x
