Small setback? Encouragement, please?
I started with progesterone cream one week ago. I have been using Source Naturals, but plan to swtich to Emerita Pro-Gest with my next tube. It was amazing- the fatigue, headaches, hot flashes, migraines, heat intolerance, and other symptoms were lifting significantly. I was really excited. I still am.
My doctor's report said I had very low progestoerne levels in the lab work, so I am not self-diagnosing. I am trying to remain reasonable and sane about this, but all I want to do is keep using what works to give me relief. I'm afraid I'll overdo it and screw up my hormones more.
Today I experienced the fatigue and heat intolerance again. I was really disappointed. I slept in later than I should have, and took a long nap as well. It made me sad. I had no energy, and some of the other symptoms felt like they were looming. I hadn't realized how uncomfortable I was, and for how long I had been uncomfortable, till things began to lift.
I don't want to go back!!! I want to be balanced and productive. I forgot how good it feels.
I know many of you have been through these experiences. Can you help me stay on course?
I have noticed that I experience almost instantaneous relief when I apply my proper dosage of the cream in the morning and evening. I am so tempted to apply more during the day when the symptoms start. I know from reading that balance is the key, so I guess I can't do that. But I want to!
Thanks for listening. I at least needed to get this off my chest.
Can you help me with any new ways to think about or approach this? Mrs H? Shotzy? anyone?
