Possible hormone imbalance?

I had a partial hysterectomy in 2008. The past few months I feel like I am going crazy. I am extremly irritable, cry on a whim, feel overwelmed or foggy headed alot, depressed or find myself just not caring. This is not like me at all. When I look up hormome imbalance symptoms I don't really find much that matches my sympotoms; no hot flashes, hair loss or anything like that. There is nothing going in my life that I should be depressed about so I don;t know if going to a psychiatrist is the right route. I have an appointment with my ob in a few weeks but i am afraid he is just going to think I am crazy. I am only 38 and still have my overies so I don'tknow what would cause an imbalance. Has anyone gone though anything like this and if so,was it hormonal? Any thoughts would be appreciated

Re: Possible hormone imbalance?

I have gone thru ups & downs similar to what u have described. I am a newbie hystersister so n't have a lot of experience re post op hormonal stuff. However, I have read of another hystersister who said she had an amazing medical team helping her figure out what 'normal' hormone level is for her. I am starting to think that just because my hormone levels are 'normal' according to my dr does that really mean they are not 'off' what my body is use to? I have decided to visit my GP and get this ball rolling bc my surgeon is often too busy & uninterested. Maybe my GP, who has a view of my overall health can help. If its not hormones, he can help me find the right answer.

When I went to my GYN he said all was normal and proceeded to ask me if I am stressed or were there things on my mind- valid questions BUT... I love my life and all the people/things/events in it so I have very little reason to get so strung out emotionally. Keep us posted on what the Dr says. There's an answer out there.

Re: Possible hormone imbalance?

Ovaries left after hysterectomy can stop functioning, or at least not function well. It's not uncommon. Ask your Dr. to keep a watch on your levels.

Re: Possible hormone imbalance?

Thank yo for the input. How can you tell if your ovaries are not working right? Is there symptoms?

Re: Possible hormone imbalance?

Your Dr. can check your levels. Take a look at some lists of peri-menopause/menopause symptoms (top of the page click on the pink flower MENOPAUSE). Estrogen levels can start fluctuating in your thirties even if the ovaries are working.

Re: Possible hormone imbalance?

I know this is an old post, but I have been searching and searching on this site for someone who went through what I am going through now. I swear dolphin28 experienced the same things I am going through right now. I have all the emotional and irritability junk going on. I keep saying I feel out of my head sometimes. I have expressed this to my GP and my GYN and they both (they're women too) keep saying that I kept my ovaries and since I am only 38, I should be fine. I am ready to order a hormone test online! I don't know if I should try herbal supplements on my own or keep hoping for answers. I just know something is wrong. I feel like I am on endless roller coaster of PMS!!

Re: Possible hormone imbalance?

If you want you could start up a new thread. Along with getting your hormone levels checked you should get your thyroid levels checked as well. I just had all my blood work done to see where my levels are sitting. I hope you get an answer soon and a plan in action to get back on the road to feeling normal. All the best.
