everyday, mainly late afternoon onwards, face gets hot, so does back, neck, chest, the worst is my back and face, in particular the nose, forehead, upper lip
no, only blood test to see if I'm going thru menopause
no, I've tried different doses of climaval, premarin
OK. Then I don't think this is a premenopausal or a premenopausal problem since that should have helped.
You need your thyroid function tested as well as your cortisol levels since this is more likely an overactive thyroid problem or high cortisol level problem.
Let me know if you need more information about this please.
I had thyroid tested, that was fine.
Then I would also check your cortisol levels and also screen you for autoimmune disorders since those could also cause your symptoms.
And if the flushing were combined with diarrhea I would consider a rare disorder called carcinoid syndrome
My point is that if the HRT combinations aren't helping at all this can't be a menopause or premenopause problem
what are cortisol levels and how are they tested, thru a blood test?
if cortisol levels r high, whats the treatment?
Then it probably would be from a benign adrenal tumor and that would require surgery.
Talk to your doctor about what I've said
can I come back to you and follow on from this conversation after I've spoken to the doctor?
why do I need both AM and PM levels checking of cortisol levels?
That's standard practice since the levels are substantially different in the morning and evening.
We can continue the discussion but right now I would ask that you rate my service to you Alpna
