Thanks 72Malibu! I really appreciate that you wrote me back. The itchy symptom for me has been out of control lately. I can't believe how much I am dealing with this. It does come and go depending on what time of the month it is. But it happening more often than not.
For the first time today I actually knew I was having a HOT flash. (when it was ending) I hadn't had nausea like this before. It just came sweeping on me, then dizzy, and itchy of course..the HOT like crazy and it lasted a couple of minutes then suddenly gone and then I was chilly.
I said to myself enough is enough!! I FINALLY found a pharmacy that had half of it Naturalpathic! YAHOO!! I was thrilled! Finally, I found a place that would test my hormones and believe me that I am really suffering!!! I am 44 and in the midst of this battle. My mom said she never had it as bad as me. Well then she remembered she was on HRT for awhile. Well ya! Us gals going through this now are just toughing it out.
So tomorrow I am going to be taking 4 saliva samples throughout the day that will be mailed in the following day. They say you should test between day 19 and day 23 of your cycle. Tomorrow well be day 23 for me. And to be honest I am in the midst of the worst symptoms I have had all at once. Hot flashes, anxiety, itching, heart palpatations, achiness, crampiness, Nausea and dizziness. ugh! So this test should really show what's going on with me.
I am sure you can relate. Hang in there! We are going through this together with millions of other women. Thanks for listening and for your imput!
