oestrogel and progesterone- tension in legs and very aggitated
Hi I am new to all this HRt so am looking for some guidance if possible.
I am 47 and peri. I have been so a consultant and she has recommended I go in 2 pumps of the gel and progesterone for 10 days. Since i started the gel , that's putting 2 pumps on my thighs in the morning I felt very drugged for a better word and slightly lightheaded. the tension i feel in my legs is awful. I am extremely irritable and snappy with everyone and at about 4 o clock im absolutely exhausted, an unnatural tiredness. I decided to put 1 pump instead of 2 at 6pm (doc said this was fine) to see if this made a difference but now when i go to bed i cant sleep like my head is racing, eventually when i do , i then cant wake up in the morning i'm so tired.
I know that i am sensitive to drugs, with a paracetamol at night making me sleep the night through in a deep sleep haha.
vit bs i can't take as they stimulate me and keep me awake also.
about 6 months ago I suffered with nights sweats , waking at 4 every night, irregular periods, some months not coming at all. anxiety, moodiness and depression especially from ovulation till period hence this is why i sought help. flushes stopped about 2 months ago and early waking but i carried on and took the long awaited appointed with the specialist as i knew theyd come back. they haven't yet so i am wondering should i park the hrt until they do or will it help with the irregular periods, anxiety moods etc?
sorry for long waffling emailing, slightly all over the place email . x
any advice please.
