Re: What is causing this pain?

Grass, trees, dogs, cats, flowers, etc, weeds, etc...yes, an environmental allergy can be the cause. You might dry a cold compress to help with the swelling

Re: Perimenopausal, Severe Cramps for 4-5 days and no period!!

Aleve works well for some. Before it was OTC, gynos handed out the scrip for it to women with bad cramps. Birth control can help also.

Re: Stomach pain, perimenopause

If you are not on birth control, I suggest you try that. If you are, ask for a change in your scrip. It could help immensely.

Re: Estrogen dominance?

Maybe you just need to change your meds. And since you take HRT continually, anyy blood test done while on it will not be valid. You would need to be off for at least a week.
