From this study (6 days ago):
I am a 50 year old female, 130 lbs, 5' 7" tall. I have been receiving hormone replacement therapy pellets for that last two years. Getting over an elevated testosterone level having had two much inserted in the last 90 day cycle. Testosterone levels now about 265. Having head pressure or headaches that started about three weeks ago that last all day until sleep. Is there an metabolic or vitamin decline or might some levels of something be too high that might cause these headaches and might materialize when the menstrual cycle ceases ? I.E. Iron, adrenal production, etc. Have had an MRI recently that came back normal.
