Menopause - doctor recommendations
I am 42 years old and am heading into early menopause. I am looking for a recommendation for a medical doctor (Cigna) to work with me to improve my symptoms. Maybe a reproductive endocrinologist or an Obgyn. I’m also open to alternative treatment recommendations but I want a medical doctor to work with as well. My symptoms are exhaustion, irritability, and food cravings. The space between my periods has ranged from 6 months to 2 weeks within the past year. Basically I feel like I have PMS all the time. I got this diagnosis from my primary care doctor and she recommended a sleep study for my exhaustion prior to making any plans to relieve the menopause symptoms. I have already seen a sleep specialist and she thinks a sleep problem is very unlikely to be the cause of these issues and so do I. I recently moved from Brooklyn so the primary care doctor is new to me, and I won’t be able to see her again until mid-January. If anyone has gone through something similar I would appreciate any recommendations. Thank you!
