Hormonal flux?


Recommended Posts

Hi Kris,

I'm 50 and yes, since the SAH I do/have noticed that the time before my period and during, makes my dizziness/balance worse and I can "write off" about 7 days, as feel lousy.

I was on the contraceptive pill and my Doc has taken me off it, as I've hit the 50 mark. I've been off the pill for the last 6 weeks and I feel so much better for it. More energy, but am now experiencing very sleepless nights, due to body temperature, as am either cold or boiling hot and it wakes me up. So I think that perhaps I need a blood test to check my hormone levels. xx

Sounds like me. I was once on the pill in my 20s and lost my left visual field and went to the ER. I thought I was having a stroke. The doctor said he suspected that it was caused by the pill so I stopped taking it and I'm so glad I did. However, I might get my levels checked as you're going to do also at my next check-up.

Thanks,

~Kris
