Q & A

I have not been feeling well these days, no energy, headaches...  the list goes on.  

I don’t know if I’m getting sick, or if it’s all part of the Perimenopause stuff. I am having such a hard time with all of this. This is SO NOT like me! Does it get any easier or better? If there is anyone that can clue me in, I’m about to be in tears...

    • I’m sorry you‘re feeling this way....frown

      Start by looking at Dr Madden’s blogs on here and see if that helps any.
      Is there any reason why you haven’t (I am assuming...sorry)been to the dr’s to disccuss how you are feeling?

    • Yes, take a trip to the doctor. There can be so many reasons this is going on. Make sure they take bloodwork to be sure you‘re not anemic or that your thyroid is not acting up.

    • I’ve been to the doctor, my OBGYN, and have been in close contact with them after he put me on Estrogel. That seemed to have helped for a while, and then he had to double the prescription/dosage, but it’s as if my body has adjusted to the latest dosage. You are all correct, I need to get myself back to the doctor’s office again.  

      Thank you for the support and “Push” to get myself back to the doctor’s office. They are sending me home from work.  

      Sincerely,
      Sylvia

    • I am glad you plan on seeing your MD again.  Sometimes, it can be the RX, or it can be low iron, and many things.  I suggest to talk in depth with your MD, ask for blood test (CMP) at least to rule out certain possible thing.  Work closely with your MD.... they don’t know if you don’t tell.  You are in my thoughts and prayers.

    • Yes, call the doc. If you haven’t had your thyroid checked in awhile, I’d do that too. And Ellen is right about hormone levels being checked. There are various ways to do that. My doctor did a simple blood test to check the free estrogen level but there are other tests that are more conclusive.

      My suspicion? Perimenopause. You‘re in good company! We all can help each other get to the other side of this.

      Best to you

    • Unfortunately tears don’t help in this case, but taking action does. I would recommend to contact our expert Dr. Michael Madden http://fabulously40.com/fabulously/drmadden and have your adrenals checked. He will be able to tell you exactly what supplements you need to feel better. He is amazing.

      Hope you feel better soon.

    • Thank you ladies...  so much to soak in, but my first step has been taken. I made an appointment to see my doctor tomorrow at 10 am.  

      They’ve checked my hormone levels a couple months back, I was told at the time that they could be misleading and not show the hormone levels off due to the fact that I had a partial hysterectomy back when I was 30.  

      I’ve heard of bioidentical hormones and have been looking for a doctor in my area that specializes in bioidentical hormones. Am hoping I can get in to see him soon.  

      Thank you so much for the information that everyone has given me. I know that “This too shall pass“. I just feel like I’m losing my mind in the process.  

      Always,
      Sylvia
