Newbie with questions
Hi everyone !
Boy , do I have questions! I found this site awhile ago looking for answers, and have had a lot of questions answered already , just by reading everyones comments.Thank-you ladies,I realized I was not going crazy. I just turned 50,a couple of days ago and had a partial hysterectomy a little over 16 years ago. I still had my ovaries so no HRT necessary.Anyway about two years ago I started with the mood swings and alot of anger,no patience, depression,and everything else,although I didn't realize that was my start.The Hot flashes,night sweats and major tears started about 3 months ago, and that sent me to the doctor.I've never had a estrogen panel done,nor any other test. She prescribed Estradiol-1mg,which worked for the 1st month,except they felt like they were wearing off in the early afternoon.So she upped the dose to 2mg. I'm now breaking them up into 2 and taking 1/2 in the morning and 1/2 in the afternoon. Now here are my questions.From what I've read on here 2mg seems like alot of estrogen, is it ? Why do I still feel bloated all the time? why do I want to eat all the time and Why am I so tired all the time ? Also my heart feels so heavy sometimes that I lose my breath ,only lasts for a minute or so, is that normal ?
