She is taking 2 grains naturethroid and 35mcg on T3 and is feeling more energy and has totally no muscle pain. I felt things were progressing well because of these new developments. She also got her period for the first time in 5 years which all seemed positive to me. The downside to this is she now has a lot of acne and has gained another 8 pounds since Christmas. Another side of all this is extreme sensitivity to many foods.
He also ran a test for a strange rare yeast and sent it to the lab. We will see. I'm very hopefully the estrogen will work, my skin feels like it needs some help rebuilding or healing. If not I'm to go see a vulva specialist. Any thing else you can tell me about your situation? How long did you try the estrogen, was it cream or oral?
Hello, Usually hot flashes and night sweats are common with low estrogen as well as dizziness and fatigue sometimes. Unfortunately also Headaches among other symptoms. These symptoms may be experienced after withdrawal from estrogen patches. You should consult your gynecologist and then only stop using the patches. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided.
The common causes of flashes are Fever, hyperthermia, Menopause, Emotional blushing and Rosacea. Menopausal flushing is commonly seen in women of age more than 45 years and uncommon in younger women unless there is a considerable estrogen deficiency which is associated with episodic sensations of heat, intense sweating, and flushing. In such cases hormonal replacement therapy will help to relieve the symptoms even psychological manifestations.
The first symptom I noticed was the profuse sweating of my face, neck, chest and sometimes back. The redness is in my face and I also have rosacea so I can tell where that is and where the abnormal redness is. I also have redness on my arms and it looks like I am sunburned. Trust me, I live in Oregon, I am not sunburned!

So, consult a gynecologist and get estrogen, progesterone, FSH, LH, prolactin levels checked. The symptoms can also be due to brain’s affliction due to diabetes, thyroid disorders, poor circulation, poor sleep pattern, or it can also be due to low vitamin B12 or low vitamin D. It can also be brain changes due to dementia. You need comprehensive investigations for this. Please consult your doctor regarding this. Take care!
concerning your raise in Synthroid--you might want to do some research into natural dessicated thyroid, such as Armour, which many of us have found worked FAR better than Synthroid and other T4-only meds.
My daughter is taking Nature Throid and slow release T3 for hypo and after she started taking the medications she started having elevated testosterone and then the acne started. She now is taking metformin for PCOS, not sure whether she really has that or not but they suspect that she does.
Hello. I am 50 years old and am certain that I am "in Menopause". But prior to being sure of that, 6 months ago I experienced a near fainting spell. Since that time, I have had equilibrium problems, some minor dizziness, mild nausea and some pressure in my head; these symptoms have finally subsided after 6 months although I now have brief periods of those symptoms and they are much less extreme.
Hello, I can understand your concern for these symptoms, but increased thinning and fragility of skin, skin rosacea, atrophy and tachyphylaxis are frequent side effects of topical steroids. For these side effects, wait and watch is the treatment available as it may take ample of time to get better. There is no topical treatment as such which can counter these side effects.
There is a connection between Vitamin D levels, estrogen and pituitary issues, including hypopituitarism (I'm too lazy to look up the spelling right now). From what I have read and I'm going off memory right now, estradiol and vitamin D either work together or are put to use by the same receptors or transmitters. Growth hormone is a factor in this as well. My levels of growth hormone are mildly elevated with my vitamin D being 11.
Unhappy with my diagnosis because where the hives were occuring weren't what the Rosacea web sites described, I went back to my dermatologist office and saw a different Doctor when I was in the middle of a breakout. He suggested that I just have chronic acne and wanted to put me on Accutane and birth control pills. I'm almost 40 and I have had acne throughout my life, but the way the breakouts were happening suggested hives to me.
I am a very healthy person, eating right and working out regularly. I also drink tons of water and generally get 6-8 hours of sleep every night. I use a mostly all-natural beauty routine using beauty products I got from LUSH. My cleanser is a honey, almond oil and beeswax blend that you massage into your skin and wipe off with a damp cotton pad. I then generally put on a clay mask from LUSH.
I have struggled with chronic stomach pain and constipation, restless leg syndrome, vulvodynia and asthma since early childhood. Rosacea, severe depression and anxiety, fatigue, brain fog (derealization/depersonalization), hypothyroidism, facial pain, and sporadic but managable muscle pain since early /mid teens.
Plus I am also treated for acid reflux, asthma, osteoporosis, depression, myoclonus, high homocysteine, allergies, hypothryroidism, low estrogen, bletharitis, rosacea, scalp problems, and on and on. Also I have stroke weakness on my right side causing terrible falls, plus kidney failure from the CT scans after my stroke. And sometimes my words come out wrong or I can't find the right word to say from my stroke aphasia.
After reading up on DEMODEX treatments online, I see that SEA BUCKTHORN OIL is also used to teat DEMODEX. Demodex has recently been linked to rosacea too and rosacea sufferers appear to be getting some help by using both neem & sea buckthron oil. INTERESTING! I'm going to try a combination of both oils and use them widely on my facial area as these mites can live and be transferred easily from on part of the face to the hair follicles pretty easily.
I find calamine lotion helps a bit, but nothing else. If it`s any help to anyone, I`m 55 and have had rosacea for the last 10 years - don`t know if that`s significant but thought it worth a mention. Can someone help please, I haven`t had a good nights sleep in years!
It's gotten to the point where I do not expose my chest/neck ever - and cover up whenever I can. I had read once that taking Niacinimide could help - and I've been taking about 1000mg of it for a few months, but am not seeing much improvement. Anyone with any help or suggestions I would REALLY appreciate it.
It started out by happening occasionally but now it occurs after every shower and has started happening after getting out of the swimming pool. The itching is getting more intense and I'm afraid that it will continue to just get worse and last longer. Water is the only thing so far that triggers this. This is not a topical or dry skin itch, it's like my nerve endings are going wild inside my legs. Nothing seems to relieve the itch, it just has to "run it's course".
I spent the last week in the hospital and doctors found all teswt (CT, MRA, MRI and bloodwork) to be normal. I have neck pain, vision and hearing problems, dizziness, numbness and tigling in the left side. I went to my PC and he said they did see a cyst in my sinus cavity. I knew it was there because of prior scans, but was told it was not a big deal. He said I sould see an ENT. I did last year and was told to use nose sprays to dry it up which did not work.
After doing some research, I believe it is an over production and build up of sebum on the scalp. I have had acne problems, have rosacea, and my skin and hair is very oily. I found balancing shampoos on line that are supposed to prevent sebum build up. Aveda is one of them, but I haven't tried it. Sebum: substance with an oily consistency produced by the sebaceous glands. It lubricates hair, is an antifungal/antibacterial, and imparts waterproofing properties to the skin.
I was trying to write it off as the toilet paper, etc! But then I became more and more worried, and began to research it and that's when I came across this website. After reading everything I decided to go see my OBGYN. He of course tested me for Herpes, and even though I had read everything that you have all been through, and knowing that none of your tests had come back positive, I was still nervous. He also tested me for a yeast infection.
Even that small an increase (half of the weakest dose manufactured) sends my blood pressure soaring, gives me a rapid heartbeat, and causes my rosacea (skin condition) to flare. Then within a few days, blood pressure, pulse, bright red ears, and burning eyes all begin to simmer down again. At my current dosage level of 75 mcg., I am tantalizingly close to feeling as well as I did a year ago.
I now believe many of the toxicity symptoms are not directly caused by the b6, but by the severe depression in estrogen levels and resulting hormone imbalance. (At least in women) I think getting estrogen levels back up helps tremendously with energy. Also - absolutely NO aspartame, phenylalanine, nutrasweet (all the same & in many diet/ sugar free foods). I stumbled upon "aspertame toxicity" in my research.
after i had a spinal injury and 2 opperations i sufferd this on and off for years. it is nerve sensations that you are feeling and absolutely nothing to worry over. in my experience , what we've never had before feels scary, but can be quite harmless.
My labia gets sore from the scratching and I break skin often from scratching. I have tried everthing, but it doesn't go away. I know it's not an STD because I went to the doctor's and have been tested. However they haven't helped me none. The labia skin is thickened from the scratching, is very dry (white-like) and flaky (at times). So are my inner thighs at the crease yet they do not itch that often. There are no bumps but my skin is raised, and I don't know what it is.
Maybe it's estrogen or testosterone. I don't know. If someone else logs on and chimes in we might have better clues. God bless.
I take Lipator, vitamin D, and use a estrogen patch for hot flashes and night sweats, (I'm 56 years old). I have two small dogs. I have had adult acne since I was in my twenties. Have had eczema on my hands and feet, on and off, since my twenties. Have been under extreme stress lately due to being laid-off and my husband's prostate cancer. My race is a mixture of Hebrew, English, and American Indian. Let me know, maybe we can figure out this condition!
Sometimes they are red splotches on my skin, other times they are thick welts, both itch unreal. My eyes, lips and feet swell also. My eyes and lips swell till I look like someone has beat me...Any sugestions???
