Pharmacy Expert Q&A's
Name: Leslie

Is muscle pain affecting various areas of the body (rib cage, upper back, sternum, hips, thighs) caused by lack of hormones, and if so, which one? How can one tell if the pain is being caused by lack of hormones OR fibromyalgia? The pain started after periods began skipping over a year ago and has not subsided.


Dear Leslie:

it can definitely be from a hormone imbalance. At this time I would suggest you call in to order a saliva test and measure the following hormones: Estradiol, progesterone, Testosterone, DHEA, and Cortisol. This test can be ordered directly from Bellevue Pharmacy Solutions, and we can get it covered by insurance for only a copay if you have either Blue cross or United Healthcare coverage. Once the results come back to you and to us, then we will ask you to follow the patient empowerment program and do a consultation with us; so we can give you a suggestion for therapy for natural bioidentical HRT, if that is what is called for. Here is the program to follow:
To learn more about how we can help you get started on bioidentical hormone replacement therapy and feel better through our “Patient Empowerment Program” click here or post this in your web browser. This program was developed to assist you in getting started on the natural bioidentical hormones. It empowers you through knowledge and education to approach your physician and get the natural treatment you are looking for. We provide physician referrals, as part of our program.

The patient empowerment program is a full in-depth consultation with a consultant pharmacist whereby we evaluate your symptoms, lab work of your hormones (if performed), and any other pertinent laboratory results via phone consult. We then make an assessment and write a clinical consult note that includes recommendations for natural bioidentical hormones that you can provide to your doctor. If you have already discussed bioidentical hormones with your doctor or if your doctor refuses to prescribe them after reviewing our recommendations, we will provide you with a referral to a physician in your area that will prescribe bioidentical hormones.

We would like to help you feel better, and be your compounding pharmacy in the future. We ship all across the country, and accept hundreds of insurance plans for reimbursement.

After you fill out the consultation form, you will be contacted by one of our consultant pharmacists within 2 business days to set up a consultation. Alternatively, to get started you may call 1-800-728-0288 and request to schedule a consultation with one of our pharmacists or forward an email requests for a consult to We look forward to speaking with you.
