I hope you're feeling better. I don't take HRT of any kind yet, so I don't have an answer for you. Have you talked to your doctor about it? I encourage you to give your doctor a call and find out if it is related to estrogen or not.

I hope someone who has some experience with taking estrogen comes along and can share some insight with you. Please let us know who you're doing and what you find out, ok?

s, Deb

Can Estrogen cause flushing/dizziness???

Hi Zanner

I do take estrogen, but I have never experienced those symptoms. I agree, you should call your Dr if you are still experiencing the tingling in the arms and legs with dizziness. Your Dr may want to rule out something potentially serious, especially since you are still recovering from surgery.

I hope you are feeling better soon.

Let us know.

Can Estrogen cause flushing/dizziness??? ja vu! Those were my symptoms when my hormones were wildly fluctuating..................either too much or too little. I've always been very sensitive to meds.

It took me a long time to get adjusted, am sorry to say. Am using the bioidentical creams with the help of a good endocrinologist that specializes in this area. Whenever I get a little dizzy or have strange tingling sensations, I get my blood tested and we adjust.

Another thing that really helped was taking an antidepressant called Lexapro........evidently, with the hormonal changes after hysterectomy, I do not make enough of my own serotonin in my brain. Lexapro helps me retain what I DO make. It helps me from having a lot of symptoms, besides depression.

Hope you find your answers soon, with the help of your healthcare professional. Take care.....................Love, Deb
