FM 50, perimenopause, from last two days I get spells of coldness in my both calf muscles, no pain, numbness, tingling. So what to do? Thanks

Cold Calves: Lower extremity coldness can be due to many conditions, too numerous to discuss here. With hormonal fluctuations, as a woman approaches menopause, there may be a phenomenon of superficial vascular hyper-reactivity. Dilation is often described by many women as hot flashes, dizziness, sweating, etc. If vessels constrict, blood flow decreases, the skin will cool, hence the cold limbs. ...Read more

I'm 38 years old, sore nipples, last period in July 2014.had a tubal ligation at 25. Could I still be pregnant or is it perimenopause or hormonal?

I'm 38 years old, sore nipples, last period in July 2014.had a tubal ligation at 25. Could I still be pregnant or is it perimenopause or hormonal?

Yes, it's possible: There is a small possibility that pregnancy may occur after a tubal ligation. The ends of the cut tube sometimes may reconnect and pregnancy may occur. When this happens there is an increase risk for an ectopic pregnancy ie the pregnancy remains inside the tube and not migrate to the uterus. This can become a life threatening emergency. Do a pregnancy test, if positive see your doctor. ...Read more

My right nipple is constantly hard, sore, and tingling (like arm going to sleep) for 2 days. Could it be an allergic reaction to my new birth control?

My right nipple is constantly hard, sore, and tingling (like arm going to sleep) for 2 days. Could it be an allergic reaction to my new birth control?

Less Likely Allergy: Most likely, this is a reaction to the hormonal changes the new birth control is making since the goal of the meds are to alter the normal hormonal cycle by changing the levels. Call you doctor or pharmacist to see if it is a normal reaction to the medication - since it is new it may be that it will improve with time. ...Read more

I feel a pain in right, left and center of my chest which last for few seconds  and tingling in my arm?

See your doctor ASAP: Tingling in the shoulder, arm, jaw, neck, or hands may be associated with chest pain due to cardiac causes such as angina or heart attack (poor blood supply to the heart muscles) among other conditions that affect the heart or the major vessels.

I do not think your symptoms are neurologic in origin. I am more concerned about your chest pain. Please see your doctor as soon as possible! ...Read more
