Hi there, This is Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist. I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
Yes the tingling sensation is due to the sensory disturbances in the breast.
Estrogen plays an important role.
The breast tissue may atrophy without estrogen and can irritate the nerves there.
Altered nerve conduction causes this sensation.
That is why when you started to use estradiol cream, then symptom subsided.
Now on chronic daily use, your body is asking for more and hence this tingling sensation reappeared.
This will subside over next few days.
this is not concerning.
Common during post menopausal age.
Normal mammgam is very reasuring.
THis is not related to any cancer or anything like that.
Thank you so much for this, the sensation has lessenned since it commenced 3 days ago, my plan is to continue to use the weekly oestrodol as this seems to manage the vaginitis symptoms and just mention this to my family doctor hen I see her in 3 weeks
That sounds good.
do not worry
