Hi ladies! Just came back from my new obgyn. I have finally been heard. Yes, indeed I am in perimenopause. Estrogen deficient for sure! It is looking as if I need to be on a combo BCP. It is a 90 day regiment, basically a period 3-4 x per year. She is just contacting my cardiologist because of some prior heart testing, but that should all be fine! I went back afterwards and saw perimenopause listed as a diagnosis...I cried a little 😊
For my dizzy friends... I am going to try (again) lower dose amitripyline 10mg. The thought is if the migraines can be controlled and I get more sleep...hopefully the vertigo will lessen. Apparently, he wants me to try vestibular physical therapy too. It does appear to be associated with either the migraines or the BPV...in any event it is upsetting my inner ear ( vestibular system). I am going to give that and the BCP 3 months. If my vertigo is not solved...making an appointment in our major city to see a nuerotologist and get proper balance testing done...spinning chairs, etc.
You will all be proud of me...it is raining like crazy here...I drove in terrible downpours and didn’t have a meltdown! Today...good day...check 😉
