So first, thanks so much everyone for chiming in on the DHEA issue. I honestly feel that this group is much better informed than doctors are on this issue. Although your responses varied, I definitely got the message of caution! So I decided to try it short term, but put in an email to the doc who recommended it and asked if he could check my DHEA levels.
So I started at 50 mg for 5 days and then finally tried 75 mg yesterday. So all week I've had insomnia, a sort of "hot" feeling, and some weird heart flutters. And last night, after the 75mg, I woke up sweating (even though the house was cool), slept for only about an hour and had definite heart arrhythmia through last night and this morning. And now I feel like sh*t (pardon the expletive).
So I think that the general consensus to get your DHEA tested is a good idea. I'm not going to take it again until I get tested. Makes me so annoyed to have the kaiser docs being so cavalier about taking this stuff when it is well known for its side effects. Grrr.
Thanks again all. I've been so busy it's been hard for me to respond, but I want you all to know that I read all of your posts and keep track of your progress. Shout out to those that are cycling...JulesM, hope things are okay! Cee...crossing fingers for the HH lining! lol never knew that term before this week!
