Well, it was pretty clear I had to come off the pill, but I was on that to manage endo. So the HRT was partly to do that, and partly because I was having a pretty miserable time of it with regards to sleep (or lack thereof), pain, mood and executive function. I don't know how common it is to go onto HRT straight away, but as for me, I'm tracking pain and sleep daily on a spreadsheet so I have enough data for when I go back to my doc for review.
I'm fascinated by women's health care. You know I worked as a lactation specialist for 25+ years. I know much less about peri- and menopause though.General and joint pain is still an issue, but more at night than in the mornings now, and I'm not waking up with night sweats anymore.
Ah shit!I finally got to see the nutritionist, after having to cancel the first appointment. Also in the data gathering phase of that.
Puck just had chronic lyme confirmed.
hugs!Adam is out of town until late Friday night.
And I'm on antibiotics, because when it rains, it pours.
