Hives/Weight gain and now Breast pain

Hello. I had my hysterectomy 2 years ago. I have been getting hives everyday for 6 months now. Craving sugars and a lot of weight gain and now my breast/nipples hurt. Is this normal? Our insurance has since changed and is none existent so going and getting my hormones tested would be a cost I could not afford right now. Is there any suggestions? Please help. I also have such horrible brain fog and forgetfulness. I just want to feel normal again.

Re: Hives/Weight gain and now Breast pain

As far as weight gain and sensitivity to foods I would try to eat fresh and healthy foods, nothing packaged. I noticed once I had my surgery I became sensitive to foods and my metabolism slowed down so it was easier to gain weight. I found that I was sensitive to preservatives in foods and artificial sweetners.
Exercise will help a lot of things actually, like moods, circulation of hormones you do have.

You might try something for the hives like benadryl or other antihistamine, and also pay attention to what may be causing it by the process of elimination of foods, medications, etc. Some people just cannot eat or take the same things once they go or start into menopause.

There is over the counter progesterone cream that may help with breast pain. Have you had a mammogram recently to rule out any problems?

I hope you will be able to see a doctor soon so you can discuss the symptoms you are having.
