Im 20 years old and suffer from pretty strong anxiety, mild depression, and severe fatigue. I also have an extreamly overactive gag reflex, its as if someone is always jabbing their finger down my throat. Im 5'7 and 130lbs. I was a strong well built 150lbs. I dropped down to 120lbs from eating next to nothing and not lifting for 6 months. Ive taken many phsyc meds, most have failed me with the exception of klonopin. Im finally off of it and am trying to stay "clean" off of mind altering substances in an attempt to find the root of my issues. I have been researching the hormonal field and it is quite compelling.
I beleive i have a hormonal imbalance. My free E2 levels are high as well as my previous Total estrogen readings. My Free test seems like it could be higher while my SHBG could be lower all in relation to my total test. My cortisol is also high, which is expected from stress.
Here is my history of blood work.
Im just looking for some thoughts and opinions. I started to take zinc with my fish oil, multi, b complex and Cal-Mag-Zinc to try to urge my estrogen lower and test higher.
If it comes down to it, ive been looking into AI's.
