Discussions that mention estradiol

General Health board


I wish I had more answers for you, but I am actually going through the same thing myself. I went from a person who was always cold, even in the summer, to someone who gets overheated and sweaty. Even when I am cold, I may still sweat. It is so disturbing and depressing because I feel like a stranger in my own skin. I too am trying to find answers and will pass any on if I find them out. So far I've been to an endocrinologist who said my thyroid was fine and also tested my cortisol levels. My gyno checked my fsh, lh, estradiol and insulin and those were "normal'. Went to a derm and he said it is hyperhidrosis - except that I am 31 and this just started 4 months ago - it's not like I've had this my whole life so I believe there is something else going on. Docs say it is from an anxiety disorder. I will add that this started while I was on Lexapro (an ssri) and I was sure that the sweating was a side effect from that - however, I stopped taking that in April and this is still happening!! Also, I stopped taking birth control pills in March. So maybe it is hormonal. I think I'm going to go to a neurologist next. Let me know if you find anything else out too! good luck...
