I am new here,
I will give you a brief description of what I am going through.
I started synthroid, .025 dose two months ago. I had anxiety and depression.
I got a little better, but now around my ovulation and during my period I have horrible anxiety and depression again.
The Dr. thinks I have estrogen dominance and now has found an ovarian cyst on my left ovary. He wants to shrink it with Loestrin 24. I AM TERRIFIED to try the pill. Feel like he is not listening to me and I'm telling him I have anxiety. I think the pill will make me worse. I am trying progesterone cream prescription form in between my ovulation and period.
I am at my wits end. I am 46 and felt like all this hormonal stuff was behind me. I have PCO and have been good for 8 years getting my period normally and feeling fine.
Now I am being faced with this and need some advice from someone other than a Dr who may be going through the same thing,
I think the synthroid is making me worse but have no proof since My levels are all normal now. i do feel like I am always walking on eggshells unless I take a xanax.
Anyone out there who wants to take a crack at my problems?
