first time posting ?
I have been hanging around for awhile just reading everything I can. I am 52. I thought I would finally post today. I am having a really good day but most of the time at least for 2 1/2 weeks out of every month I am very sick. In the hospital with IV fluids because i can't eat or drink anything. I have had all the standard test done with the upper and lower GI and the endo plus the colonospy and that was all good. I get all the normal symtoms of peri but the worst are the no eating and Nausea. It takes everything I have to get though the days but I have a very supportive family and I can just do what I need to. I went to my Dr. and he is very supportive of any testing that I want to get so I have been doing a lot of blood work. So this is my question. I have my first results and don't understand them as to where it might put in in the peri/meno and thought someone may know. I am not menopausal I get my period about every 6 weeks. Also no ESTROGEN was done because of a mix up in the lab. Dr. is going to test me again when I am feeling really bad. These results were at a time when I was feeling really good. Thanks.
