Estrogen excess symptoms

Common Questions and Answers about Estrogen excess symptoms


Avatar n tn I am 47 years old and have not reached menopause yet but have been having peri-menopause symptoms for several years now. My periods have become more frequent, sometimes 2 in one month, the duration of my periods are longer and at times I have pretty heavy bleeding, changing a pad several times in one hour. I dont have bleeding between periods.
Avatar f tn Oh, and I was just reading yesterday how fiber in the diet helps balance hormones by carrying away excess estrogen. Our bodies make estrogen even after a by product from the fat in our body, so you want to learn all you can about this whole thing. Daunting task, but interesting and helpful! SInce I cannot write a "book" on this forum, I have to end it here...just be sure to study up so you are aware of what this is all about...
Avatar n tn I was under the impression sore breast were due to excess estrogen but how can this be when I haven't had a period in 4 or 5 months? I am going to make an appt. with my Dr. this Monday but in the mean time, this anxiety is awful and need some reassurance and support. Thanks in Advance!
279234 tn?1363108849 There will be a decrease in estrogen, but I'm not sure if it will make an impact on my symptoms for the good, bad, or no difference at all..You know what I mean? JJ- My rather unique family puts the "fun" in dysfunction, I've always said. I love them dearly, but I need to step away from the chaos sometimes. I usually know my limits, and adjust them, but this month all heck broke loose and it's not with one family member, but several.
Avatar f tn This also ties in with you reporting hypo symptoms, rather than hyper. Please do tell us about the specific symptoms. Excess estrogen can affect levels of Free thyroid hormones, if the ratio of progesterone to estrogen is too low. That results in excess TBG which ties up more of the Total T4 and T3 and reduces Free T4 and Free T3. Since you don't have reliable test results, you can't be sure whether this is an issue or not.
Avatar m tn Free T4 is converted when needed into T3 for ultimate use. Symptoms correlate best with FT3, and somewhat with FT4 and poorly with TSH. it makes perfect sense that this would be the case that symptoms correlate to the ONLY hormone that does work at the cellular level. Seems like common sense. Yet many if not most will not even test for the most important hormone and instead rely upon the LEAST reliable test that being TSH. You may find some interesting things from this website.
Avatar n tn so i stopped takin the estrogen for a few days now to get rid of some of the excess estrogen the gel gave me!
135691 tn?1271100723 The last go-round was with Prometrium (capsules). Fortunately, I don't need them anymore. My thermal ablation in March solved the issues with the "excess" or "unopposed" estrogen. But I am still curious about the information that you can offer; you are the resident expert in this matter!
Avatar f tn Hello, Symptoms of estrogen deficiency are hot flushes, fatigue, headache, night sweats, vaginal infections, incontinence, anxiety and stress. Symptoms of esterogen excess are weight gain, irregular menstrual periods, which can be excess bleeding or light bleeding, and an increase in the strength of pre-menstrual symptoms and anxiety. Confirmation can only be done after getting the estrogen levels checked.
Avatar f tn an LH of 99, FSH 30, and normal estrogen (sorry I forgot the number) on day 21 or 26 of my cycle, depending on whether you want to count the day it started heavily bright red (26) or the day I started getting the browner variety (21)... Also-- I'm about 9 years out from an autologous bone marrow transplant to treat Hodgkins Disease. I'm 29 and still in remission. I did not have radiation. I also didn't have periods for about three years afterwards.
Avatar f tn There are other types of ovarian cancer that are hormone driven and depending which form a person has there will be excess symptoms of that specific hormone. This is the type my wife was Dx with granulosa cell ca(estrogen). These group type are called sex cord -stromal tumors. These type of tumors have specific markes that the Dr's use just like ca-125 to aide in their dx of epitheal ovarian ca. They are Inhibin A&B and MIS.
903476 tn?1242240637 I find your history absolutely interesting and an answer should be sought here.Your hair and nail symptoms, myalgias,rash, mental symptoms all lead to one possible diagnosis. 'Biotin deficiency'.Extremely rare though, these symptoms prompt me to suggest the same. Do consult your physician.
Avatar n tn Also, you need to eat fresh and whole foods, they need to be organic so they are not estrogenic in the body. Excess estrogen inhibits thyroid function. If you eat animal products, they need to be organic and "free range" and you should eat no more than ONE serving daily. If you have been following a high protein diet like many practitioners tell hypothyroid's to do, know that it will not support your thyroid and it will worsen your constipation if that is one of your symptoms.
Avatar f tn I would go to another endocrinologist for a second opinion, my husband had the same symptoms and he had hyperthyroid and was also not producing enough testosterone and too much estrogen, the excess estrogen was causing him to gain weight.
Avatar f tn So what are the common signs and symptoms of ovarian cancer? To answer this question, researchers from the University of Minnesota in the United States recently reviewed medical records of 107 women diagnosed over a 12-year period to 1997. They published their findings in this month's Mayo Clinic Proceedings.
Avatar n tn When thyroid gland produces excess thyroid hormone it causes hyperthyroidism. The symptoms are simple for which people ignore them easily. A person who is diagnosed with hyperthyroidism will feel at a depressive condition or a digestive problem before found himself with overactive thyroid gland. The most common symptom is sudden weight loss. When without any reason you noticed that weight decreased, you need to concern to a doctor.
Avatar f tn while causing hair loss on the scalp, as well as acne, fatigue and weight gain, with difficulty to lose excess weight. Obviously it is important to disscuss ALL your symptoms with your Doctors as your symptoms could be caused by a number of different things. I would not assume something like Cushing's syndrom right off the bat. In any event. I am not a Doctor..... but any of your doctors (regardless of their specialty) should be able to point you in the right direction....
Avatar f tn The reason that I'm saying this (and, hopefully, someone else will have another explanation for it and will chime in) is that during perimenopause, the most likely cause of these symptoms is a drop in progesterone faster than estrogen dropping. So, when that happens, adding extra progesterone is likely a good thing. However, during the post menopause era, estrogen levels (and especially after weight loss) have usually dropped as well to a more balanced ratio with progesterone.
Avatar n tn In addition, women often have stressful lives, eat processed foods or skip meals, take synthetic estrogen HRT (hormone replacement therapy) and have hysterectomies. All these factors can add more estrogen to the female body, resulting in excess estrogen which will cause hormone imbalance symptoms. How can a woman tell if she is experiencing hormone imbalance symptoms?
Avatar f tn joint pain, excess prespiration, mood swings, foggy mind,meal related bloating, reduction in breast fullness some cures: estriol ??
Avatar f tn Further, it would be good to find out your ratio of Free T3 to Reverse T3, as mentioned previously, since excess RT3 can cause hypo symptoms. And finally I would try to get tested for cortisol levels. The best test for that is a diurnal saliva cortisol test, done at 4 times during the day.

Avatar n tn Hi, Don't know if this will help, but my uncle has many of the same symptoms you've described and he was finally diagnosed with Meniere's Disease.
Avatar n tn I can be tired after 12 hours sleep! Can I be suffering symptoms from my thallassemia. Does any one else feel the same way that I do? This is a little bit hard for me, but I don't want to complain.
Avatar n tn For example, if I am out of balance with my estrogen (even though it is the bioidentical and not the synthetic type) and progesterone (not progestin as we all know by now) I can get into trouble with estrogen excess. But if I am low on Progesterone, my thyroid goes crazy, my cholesterol goes up, and I cease rebuilding bone, I have constant and debilitating brain fog, (although the estrogen and testosterone contribute to clarity of mind) joint pain, soft muscle pains, etc.
Avatar f tn I've always had symptoms of anxiety, nervousness, irrability,weakness is legs, trouble sleeping excess sweating and usualy feel warm most of the time. Over the past few years in college these symptoms have worresned and I have trouble concentrating, and feel fatigued and depressed alot. I told my doctor about these symptoms 3 years ago, and he had me put on the Anti Depressant Lexapro. Being on Lexapro did nothing for my anxiety, and nervousness so I stoped using it after a years time.
Avatar m tn 1. General fluttering. Happens for brief spells,10 or 20 seconds. Heart seems to not beat at all and then picks up like a machine gun. Really only feel it when lying down trying to sleep. Not nervously checking but just sort of passively. Through the neck sometimes even. You just notice it and it keeps you up. The least painful. 2. Radianting discomfort on left breast area. All over the left side.
Avatar f tn Now it appears that these 4 years of NOT using birth control may have contributed to my excess estrogen in my body, not to mention that fat produces estrogen too and since I'm overweight--that has made it worse. So I'm just confused as to what to expect from this biopsy. I'm wondering if there is anyone else out there who has had a similar experience--having NO SYMPTOMS but needing an ENDO BIOPSY due to an abnormal PAP SMEAR result or a pap that had identified endo cells being present.
Avatar m tn I was wondering if you guys have these symptoms or I am only one. Maybe this is not anxiety??
Avatar f tn I stopped taking them on Friday and started to have anxiety for no reason and a sense of hopelessness as I was still dealing with pain and tremors and feeling that my doctor did not believe all my previous work up and symptoms. My symptoms worsened over the next couple days that included muscle cramps in weird areas such as the back of my skull, the knee cap, my neck, and my heels.
