I still have regular periods, no hot flashes yet. I have hard periods with clotting and moodswings and depression. Nervousness and do not sleep well. I've also been having chest pains. I had an EKG and it came back normal so not sure what that is. Thanks for any information you can provide.
Unfortunately those test results are relevant to the testing method which is largely why you can not get a standard results reply on the internet. If you know which laboratory tested the sample, then you might consult that company on line and they could tell you their ranges and what that means for your test. If your doctor had it tested then you should be able to consult the office for the results.Although here in the US that is getting harder and harder to do. I can not speak with my doctor by telephone as she has a secretary, a medical assistant and a nurse that are always frontline and it is very frustrating. They can not or will not give you definitive information and the doctor does not make herself available either. The old advice of call your doctor does not work here any more. There is so little available information it is amazing that we trust any medical professional anymore. It is not all their fault because the lawyers have sued them out of business but, still it can be a nusiance and down right dangerous.
