Michelle I know your pain all too well...I'm right there with you
. All the symptoms you mentions, and many that you didn't mentioned, I've been experiencing for years, but I'd say that this year everything became more intense. My dizziness/spaciness/lightheaded feeling is 24/7, although I do have times when the feeling isn't as intense.
Please find another doctor who will listen an is knowledgeable as well as compassionate. You need blood work done and you need to know your many options. Although I try to laugh as much as possible about my present dilemma (to keep from crying for weeks) I'd be ticked if a doctor took me and my symptoms as a laughing matter.
I just wanted you to know that you're in good company with these hormonal imbalance, although you did say that some of yours could also be related to a spinal disease. Thank God for the many women that I've spoken with who have gone through what we're experiencing, and now that they are postmenopausal they are doing wonderful. Keeping this in mind really helps me stay focused and realize that this is just something we as women have to bare. Yes, I hate it, but this too will pass...hopefully by the time I hit the submit reply button on this computer
