Overwhelmed while searching for second diagnosis

Thank you. My estrogen levels are steady so they aren't thinking menopause yet however of course we all know they can make mistakes. The idea about finding a doctor through a compounding pharmacy is great. I hadn't thought of that. So far the only functional medicine doctors I have found were 2 and a half hours away. But there is a compounding pharmacy close to me so thank you for suggesting that as a resource.

@toomanyoars Instead of just getting a estrogen test, I suggest you ask your primary/gynecologist for an FSH test (follicular stimulating hormone). This is important because it tells your body whether you are still dropping fertile eggs, and this totally drives a lot of your estrogen/progesterone/testosterone levels which can usually impact your energy and your mood.
