Thanks for your reply Tryin2cope2. Funny you mentioned Mitch Rider cuz thats where the nick name came from when I was just a kid. My little brother could not pronounce my first name so he called me cc, which turned into cc rider by my fun loving parents. Very sorry to hear that you spent so long with migraines. I have discovered that part of my problem is my tsh level is at 38.80 which puts me very hypothyroid. I think you are right about
the perimeno though because my symptoms are all over the place and they seem to get worse after week 2 of my cycle. (That has also become haywire). Doc perscribed 100 extra mcg of levoxl once a week( I currently take 100 mcg a day) and after week 2, I am starting to feel a little better. I have been being treated for Hypothyroidism for 10 years and all of the sudden its way off. The thing that blows my mind is the unbelievable anxiety. I have been reading that perimeno and hypothyroidism both contribute to it. I truly appreciate the time that you took to respond to my post. Its nice to know that people care. I have gotten a few books on perimenopause and have been reading them cover to cover. My mom took HRT for years and it really helped her thru the change. I just recently quit smoking so I will talk to my doctor about
when it might be safe to start trying the HRT. I have heard alot about
bio identical hormones also and I want to check into that too. Thanks again.
