Very discouraged!!!!

I am a newbie. I had a complete abdominal hysterectomy in February of 2008 due to two cysts the size of small canteloupes. I have had quite a rough year and a half and really discouraged. I am on Ogen .675 but I am experiencing a multitude of symptoms that I believe to be low estrogen and my doctor won't do blood tests to check my levels nor is she even willing to increase my dosage. I have horrible anxiety, panic attacks, crying spells, body aches and pains and sometimes feel like I can't breathe. I have hot flashes, night sweats, my skin has thinned and is really dry and my fingernails have turned thin and brittle. I have been to the emergency room twice thinking I was having a heart attack and have had a multitude of heart tests run and all is okay there. My thyroid has been checked several times and no problems there. I don't know what to do but I feel as though some days I am losing my mind. I am sitting here and crying as I type this because I just don't know how much more of this I can take. I think that my estrogen is too low but who knows since my doc won't do a blood test. Has anyone else experienced any of this? I guess I am just looking for someone to talk to because no one around me will listen to me.
