I saw on your website that estradiol can cause pins and needles. My ob/gyn said she had never heard of this before.
I started on 0.05 mg estradiol patches twice a week for osteoporosis/osteopenia and about 2 months later I experienced pins and needles in both legs, both arms and my tongue. Sometimes I had a feeling of coolness in my extremities as well, although I didn't feel cold. It was like a menthol coolness. I was wondering if anyone else has experienced this.
I stopped the patch when it started disturbing my sleep, and the pins and needles have subsided substantially. My ob/gyn and GP as well think what I am experiencing is anxiety, not a response to estrogen.
