I've been on this site for about 2 weeks and have really found it helpful. I notice that a lot of discussions about symptoms are a few years old and thought maybe I could start a new discussion on the topic to see if anyone else is dealing with the same things currently.
I am 48 years old and still get my period. They aren't always regular, sometimes light as 2 days and some heavy for 5-7 days.
my symptoms are:
I feel disconnected from things going on around me sometimes
anxiety that can be through the roof (mostly around my period)
I can't stop obsessing about my health
aches and pains mostly on my left side. Doesn't seem to bother me if I'm busy doing something or out for a walk. It's more of a dull ache accompanied with a tingling sensation that can start in my arm, through the bottom of my ribs and down to my thigh. My doctor says this is a symptom of anxiety, but I don't know if that's true.
I'm sure I could find more, but those are the ones that really scare me the most. I feel like anytime I sense one of these symptoms coming on it sends my anxiety into over drive and I can't calm myself down. The symptoms come and go, so I do end up feeling like I'm better and then bam a few days later I'm hit with something again!
Sorry for the rant, just want to know if I'm not alone in this battle. I really want to know if there's light at the end of the tunnel!
