Avatar n tn I had a complete hysterectomy 10 years ago for endometriosis and I have been on estrogen since that time. At first I was on a combination estrogen/testosterone but after I had major hair loss I started with just pure estrogen. I take Estradial .5mg. My concern is the length of time I have been on this drug and it's effects on my body. I tried to stop 2 yrs ago, but had major problems with hot flashes, depression, lack of sleep & weight gain. So the dr. put me back on at this low dose.
Avatar n tn She has only one ovary (with a cyst on it) and it is still producing estrogen. Her estrogen level is elevated at 142. She has had this problem several times in the past 20 years and it has mysteriously gone away. This time it appears worse and has lasted over 6 months. She has visited a Gynecologist and was prescribed with hormonal cream. The problem again is that she could not take anything without the strong buzzing in her head. Even MRI and hospital tests causes this effect.
393685 tn?1425816122 Progesterone - Estrogen and Thyroid Function - It is all connected? Nov 15, 2008 05:11AM - 10 comments - (Public) I am seeing some light here. Recently I was found estrogen dominant- (This again is very controversial amongst doctors) I found taking "compounded" progesterone cream did absolute wonders for my over all being and wellness. There are many opinions titling "bio identical" hormones vs. "Synthetic" - I don't feel there is much difference.
Avatar m tn Testosterone effects receptors in your kidneys which make your body produce more blood. More blood causes a rise in blood pressure, thus making your heart work harder all the time. Many people end up on beta-blockers to control blood pressure as a result. Also, cardiac muscle is not immune to the effects of steroids and can reportedly "bulk up" with long-time use of exogenous testosterone in excess of what your body would produce.
Avatar n tn I was diagnosed with high blood pressure when i was 18yrs old (when iwas only 125lbs and a cross country runner) My doc monitored my BP for about 2 months, did an EKG and put me on an ace inhibitor.

Avatar f tn Your FSH levels are consistent with premature menopause. If you were on the pill, the LH and FSH values would be low, not elevated as they are. Have you gained weight? Some of the estrogen could be from the fat cells. There could also be other sources. It does not seem your ovaries have "kicked back in" because the FSH and LH are still high. Thyroid and estrogen are related. The higher the estrogen, the lower the thyroid and visa versa.

Avatar m tn Just to let you know, anything above 130 takes 5 years of your life for on going blood pressure readings according to the papers on HBP. So don't ignore it and try and get it resolved, my issue has been going on 5 plus years so far, and I am 42.
Avatar n tn With a truly sudden elevation, I would be looking for something else in my life that changed around the same time or right before my blood pressure went up. If you are female, estrogen replacement therapy can make your blood pressure go up; estrogen acts like a salt. Which brings us to dietary changes, are you suddenly getting a lot more salt in your diet. Also, some herbs, like licorice, can trigger a rise in blood pressure. Stress, anxiety, or physical pain can do the same thing.

Avatar f tn At this point, since high levels of exercise does increase cardiac workload and stress raising blood pressure and heart rate during a workout, I would talk to a good cardiologist about exercising safely and keep them in the loop about how much you are exercising. There is an emotional and psychological effect here also, that you seem to instinctly recognize. It sounds like you really pay attention to what is going on with you. I don't know if your dr.

I take a beta-blocker blood pressure med in the morning, and now I think that it may be part of the problem, since I haven't been very active due to being depressed.

The beta-blocker also helps with migraines which have been tormenting me for decades.
