My 2 cents (may mean nothing!) When I am dehydrated from excessive sweating or lack of fluid intake my body HURTS (joints & muscles)! Estrogen does add moisture. Look what happens when we are deficient (dry eyes, skin, vaginal tissue).
Yes - I have maintained my ovaries and am 8 weeks post-op and having horrific muscle and joint pain. I had my estrogen measured at 35 which is very low from what I understand. I'm 45 and have had high levels of estrogen and progesterone prior to hysterectomy.
Does anyone know why the lack of estrogen induces such pain.
I also feel as though my spine/hip is injured on the left. Not sure if the pain is just magnified because of the low estrogen.
Do you think I should inquire about replacement therapy even though my ovaries are in tact - but may be asleep?
My pain is more internal join pain. I can't feel it to the touch..it's deeper then that but my feet hurt to walk on at first but they are also colder then normal so it could be somewhat circulation too. Hope this helps
I have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia after an injury. It has been years. I was recently put on provera and my obgyn said on my way out of the office, "it may help with joint pain". I didnt give it much thought. BUT it did! Dont know why and it isnt a cure all, but the pain level is so much lower! Maybe an estrogen dominance thing? Our bodies certainly are complex
I have been having bad cramping of my joints... it's becoming very bothersome. Does anyone else know what may be causing this ? Is it too much estrogen ? or not enough ? I feel like I have pain in my ovaries andjust plain feel terrible... I've been on bio-identical hormones since August.. and they have changed them about 4 times and I still don't feel I have the right combination.
Im really tired of feeling so awful... I have doctors appt on Tuesday and had blood levels drawn last week...
Gheezzz, can anyone shead any light on this issue ? I also have Fibryomylgia and it seems as though my whole body hurts AND cramps, like charlie horse cramps all over..
What about your body aches and pains since you've been on this low dose birth control pill ?
Do you take any progesterone cream at all ? It's so darn frustrating trying to figure out how to get this all balanced, I've lost my job of 10 years and it seems Im having a hard time getting a job and KEEPING one too... cause I feel so crappy and can't function ??
