My e2 is 53 which is on the high side. I have some symptoms of flushed skin and hot flashes as well as red dry eyes....espicially when i drink. Can e2 cause red dry eyes? I know alchohol causes estrogen to raise??that why i get worse when i drink...as far as symptoms? Can estrogen cause some fat on neck area as well as waist????water retention??It gets worse and better? Fluctuates???
