It's been awhile since I've been here so I'm hoping you will excuse my absence and answer my question anyhow.
Around about Dec. I started having heavy periods, breast pain, swelling, hard nipples that itch intensely. I googled and decided it was perimenopause. I'm 44. Tried wild yam root. Bled for four weeks stright. No more wild yam root for me.
Finally went to my sister's gyno and had lots of tests. Everything normal except my prolactin was too high (59). The doc said I probably have a tumor but at any rate they don't treat unless it hits 100.
Googled again and found that high prolactin in celiacs is indicative of active desease so I am being extremely careful with my diet. My last period was almost normal and the swelling has gone down but the pain and itching continues.
Anyone been through this? What can I do to make it stop? If it's just diet how long will I have to limit myself to my "safe diet" before I should be seeing some relief?
Thank you for taking the time to read my post.
PS not sure if this is related but I am also fighting yeast AGAIN! taking acidolphilus pearls
