> After living with my prob. for my whole life, I've gotten to know it. I have a suspicion that I have some hormone imbalances and many doctors have suspected adrenal problems. I am being treated for hypothyroidism but it hasn't solved much. I took things upon myself and bought some progesterone cream and applied it everyday. MY MOOD SWINGS DISAPPEARED!!! But obviously I shouldn't be treating this on my own (plus it causes severe constipation and blows out your libido) but can't find a doctor in NYC area who does NEUROENDOCRINOLOGY. Any one have rec's or referrals? I cannot plunk down another $600 to find out that a doctor has no intention of pursuing that route--I don't have insurance. I've read some articles in mainstream pubs about women who have been cured of mood disorders through hormone treatment and we're not talking menopause or even perimenopause. I am 27.

couldn't you just get one of them dexamethasone suppression tests to see if your cortisol levels are okay??
