testosterone, free 6.2 (1.0-6.7) premenopausal
I don't know what the difference is between the % free testosterone and testosterone, free is. Does anyone?
It is so confusing.
Don't worry about reading the tests. What did ur doc say? You are definitely premenopausal and that's perimenopause. There are no definite answers except listening and reading to all who post on perimenopause. You have every symptom of it and if they've done all the tests for major problems and found you clean as a whistle, then you are totally perimenopause. It's hard, I know, but there isn't really any cure either except to let nature take its course. Feel free and comfortable that we are all going through hell with this and vent, vent, vent and then try to not let it control your life. I've been going through this for almost 5 months now, had it before, but worsened over these past 5 months, I didn't even get a period in June. I'm beginning to get the hot flashes again and the sweats, and the trembles, as I call it, and the IBS, so it must be right around the corner, God Bless it's little heart! LOL How long have you been feeling this way? And if you are still feeling bad, the doc needs to get you off of Zoloft and put you onto something else, really. The meds are a trial and error and if it's not working and making you feel at least a little less anxious, then you need to go on to another drug. I wish you the best and I'm here for you.
