Hello, These symptoms are due to horman style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onean> deficiency after oopherectomy. In my opinion you should consult a gynecologist and start with horman style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onean> replacemenr therapy.You can also take Selective Estrogen Receptor Modulators like Femarelle which derived from a botanical source (Phytoserms) or phytoestrogens which have an estrogenic effect on the body and therean style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran>e create a moderated estrogenic effect.
I an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hadan> a total <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hysterectomy</span> 11 years an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>agoan>. Gradually my dosage has been reduced <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd I'm currently not taking anything, by choice, rather than by my doctor's direction. It's been two weeks since my last pill and so far I have an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hadan> no hot flushes, but I have an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hadan> a constant dull headache. Must I take HRT the rest of my life or is it possible that I could go off the estrogens without experiencing hot flushes or headaches (historically I've not been able to do that) or with minimal side effects?

Right now, I'm mostly only treating symptoms when they occur - anti nausea meds, pain meds, stay in a quiet, dark room, etc., etc. I do sometimes find that an ice pack on the back of my neck will help ease the pain some.

I wanted to do the natural thing so spent about $1000 with a holistic doctor who not only did the horman style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onean> testing but also suggested that I take about 5 different kinds of drops in a glass of water an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> allergies, he<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ches, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onean> even to help me sleep.

I also take Triamterene an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> water retention.

I an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hadan> an emergency hysterectomy after the birth of my son in Nov 04(uterine atony, DIC.).the OBGYN warned me i may have a little spotting an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>monthan>ly but it wasn't likely.

I an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hadan> a pap smear, pelvic exam, internal ultrasound, external ultrasound, and all the doctor could come up with was that my uterus was enlarged.

They are interrupting my life. The he<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ches are happening at least twice a week <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd sometimes up to four times a week. Sometimes they last an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> up to hours to days. I usually can tell an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onean> is about to happen and I really can't explain how I know, but I feel it. The headache is at the top of my head and at the temple areas of both sides. The headaches are so bad that Lortab hasn't phased them. an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onean> doctor thought it may be a pinched nerve or migraines. I am beginning to be worried about them.

Oh yes, you know the results to that test: "FINE". What is a vascular headache?
