What causes idiopathic edema in post menapause, it makes me so dizzy., feel bloated, vision not right ect. Cant take meds, or hormones any help?

NUTRITION!: "Idiopathic" MEANS there is no "CAUSE". thus your question unfortunately really has NO answer!! However if you are not eating well and your serum PROTEINS are low this may be a reason for the "leakage" of fluid from your vascular system. You need (if you are otherwise healthy) a HIGH PROTEIN DIET... see a Nutritionist after consulting your doctor! Hope this helps

Hi drs, have any1 ever heard of a patient getting dizzy, fatigue, and mental fog on their period. If so what could it possible causeing it? Hormones?

Period. Brain Fog: Fatigue and brain fog are documented symptoms of menstruation. Hormonal fluctuations can also cause dizziness. If you would have excessive blood loss it is possible to become hypotensive which can also cause dizziness. Recommend you discuss this with your gynecologist and come up with a treatment plan. Best wishes. Under the heading of things could always be worse, I remember a woman whosemenstruation resulted every month in a two-week episode of psychosis. She would then clear completely. She was never able to leave the psychiatric facility during the entire time that I worked at this particular state hospital.Hormone fluctuations can have obvious powerful effects in predisposed individuals. ...Read more
