I was getting hot flashes and night sweats not sleeping feeling freaked out shaky nervous just weird about a month in a half ago, so I went to my gyn and he did blood work, his eyes looked all crazy and he said oh you are definitely in menopause. I am only 44 and had my uterus removed about 3 years ago for fibro cysts, any way I started the patch for 1 week 0.075 twice a week. I am only 4'11" and 108 lbs. I was working out everyday then I felt really weird after my second week 3rd patch just put it on. I got off the exercise bike got really dizzy like vertigo for about an hour the room was literally spinning, so I took the patch off cause I got scared then the next 3 days I had a fever of about 102 and felt really sick and bad for like 10 day I hurt everywhere, not sure if it was the flu or what. For that 10 days I did not put a patch on. The 11th day I put it back on and am in my 3rd week of having it on 6 patches in and my ankle wrist finger shoulder knee and elbow joints hurt me. My muscles at top of my back and neck feel tight and sore and I feel weird. It just started this week. I'm kinda scared. Haven't talked to the gyno yet, but will on Mon.
How do I know if the patch is to strong for me?

I also feel shaky, nervous, tired, under my arms feel weird too, like sore no lumps or bumps, and kinda just want to be in the security of my own room.
The dr is ordering by your labs. Your size has nothing to do with how much medicine you get when you're an adult. I'm 4 ft 11 too. Which patch? If you feel its too much perhaps you need to start out on a patch a little smaller. I seriously doubt it had anything to do with a fever or pain. I had a higher dose then that when I was on it. And by the way, I was 43 when i started menopause. So its not too early.
