Norethindrone or problems with High Estrogen?

I've had so many problems since my surgery that life is just confusing. I'm on Norethindrone because rather than the lo estrogen we were expecting my Estradiol level was 585. I'm trying to get stabilized on Synthroid but I'm wondering if the Norethindrone is causing my fatigue and nausea?
Anyone else experienced this? I did speak to my Dr and cut the dose in half a week or two ago but it hasn't helped. I was already feeling so tired and then another Dr started me back on Valium for my bladder. The last time I was on the Valium about 2 mos ago my thyroid was better( in fact my TSH went too lo so they cut my dose in half and then I KEPT GETTING WORSE AGAIN AND HAVEN'T BEEN ABLE TO GET IT RIGHT YET) and I didn't seem to be tired on the Valium .Of course, I wasn't working as much either. Please reply with any experience with any of these.

Norethindrone or problems with High Estrogen?

I used the norethindrone in the form of activella before my hysterectomy. I found it made me very tired, also, I had problems sleeping. Are you sleeping OK? The Valium could also be the culprit, but you are on a low dose of that. I've heard that the post-op fatigue thing can go on for awhile. The other thing to rule out would be depression or other physical causes of the fatigue. Hang in there and keep digging to find the cause. margo

hi sharon
the tiredness could be that they cut your thyroid dosage and your body may not have gotten used to taking up the slack yet. the other thing it could be it the high estrogen.

Norethindrone or problems with High Estrogen?

I can't really comment about the Synthroid, as I've been fortunate enough so far not to have thyroid problems but I was on 10 mg of norenthindrone/Ayestin for 3 months after my surgery. I was exhausted all the time. I wasn't taking any estrogen though because the doctor wanted to make sure all the endo was gone. I'm not sure if the Aygestin was the culprit or it was just the usual post-op fatigue.

Oh this really is a tangled jungle indeed! Good luck and I hope you feel better soon.
