Women: Have you tried bio-identical hormones?
repatrick posted:
I suffer from treatment resistant depression as well as PTSD and anxiety, and the psych docs finally talked me into having ECT (electroshock therapy). I have always suffered from Migraines, but immediately after the first ECT treatment, I had the worst one I've ever had, and it never stopped! I suffered daily severe migraines for six solid months. I tried everything, and the last neurologist told me there was nothing that could be done for me. Fortunately, I found a Physicians Assistant who uses bio-identical hormones. I had a total hysterectomy 15 years ago, so I went through sudden menopause. In any case, she has treated me with a small amount of Estradiol, and a cream that has Progesterone and a small amount of Testosterone in it. (I rub it on the inside of both arms every morning.) After about two weeks of this treatment, my Migraines are gone!! I still get headaches, but nowhere near the pain and nausea of a Migraine. It is a miracle for me, and I hope maybe it can help some of you. Blessings to you all.
