hi everyone, im in despearte need of advice
to cut a long story short ive been having lots of weird things going on with my body but latley im convinced its to do with hormones
im 40 and have always had clock work 28 days cycle, and had bad pmt.....but over the last few months my cycle has been eratic.
from 3 weeks cycle to 30 days......i have done loads of home urine menoupase tests which come up positive, particularly dark on day 3 of period.....i told my gp who done blood tests this was done 4 days before period started on a 21 day cycle (unusal for me) anyway the results were normal.....LH 4.9 FSH 4.3 and oestradol 330
over the past few months my symtoms include
constant cramping (all month)
dry eyes very painfull
severe depression and anxiety leading up to and during period
night sweats leading up to
severe nausia and painful swollen leaking breast (like early preganacy)
always have headacues, joint pain, severe fatigue ext
over past couple of years ive been tested for just about everything gp can think of, but because all bloods come back normal most of the time i cant get referred to anyone. im waiting on results of dexa and pelvic scans.
im going on holiday in 4 weeks so im gonna have my period then and im terrified cause i cant cope at this time in general let alone on holiday with the kids.
i dont know whether to try progesterone pill which gp prescribed incase it makes things worse? i dunno what to try my quailty of life is horrendous and with 2 teenagers and a 3 n 4 year old to look after i just cant manage, i need help and dont know how!!
if anyone has any ideas that would be great
