Adrenaline rush

Posted , 14 users are following.

I have been suffering for 8 months. I had awful adrenal rushes in the beginning, then they faded around Christmas. I enjoyed a few short months of feeling good, but now they are back. I get this weird feeling, followed by some vision issues. Next, my palms and feet sweat. Then, I start to feel this odd warm/burning sensation (no sweating). All this with a surge of anxiety. Sometimes it feels hard to breathe through it and/or swallow. Occassionally, my voice sounds weird to me as well. I think the throat and voice are both due to the blood rushing to those areas. Why can't I just have the hot and sweaty type of flash?! Why must I have this weird anxiety, panic, odd type of flash. I hope it doesn't last forever.

To make things worse, I got fired on Friday. No doubt because I was out earlier in the year dealing with intractable migraine.

    Sorry to hear that you lost your job. I wish the government had something in place for women in peri and meno. Some kind of financial aide to help women in this terrible transition in life. Thank God i work from home because if i worked outside the home i would of been fired too. I work from my sofa and bed most days. Hope you find work soon something that will accommodate your needs. Praying for you

    hi staci - i have had both types of hot flashes...the sweaty heat kind & the palpitating heart/sunburn skin & rush of adrenaline that leaves you riddled with anxiety - i suffered from the former more so early on & the latter now & i am 7 years post menopause. in fact, i just woke up with one this morning - for me, it appears emotions & bad food choices trigger it -

    Sounds like you have Hyperthyroidism possibly Graves' disease from all your post. I had similar symptoms to you. Have a doctor check your thyroid. Even if it was low in the past it can change on you though menopause.

      Yes, sound like you have hyperthyroidism. I had similar one. Funny thing is my blood work came back 95% fine, maybe 5% was catch out off normal range a little bit. But finally I found my iodine uptake is elevated, and my TG is high. I have multiple nodules on my both side of thyroid. Because my blood work came back within normal range, I did not get any treatment from my doctor here in Canada. Finally I have to end up to find out my solution by myself. I went to China did Radio Frequency Ablation to part of my nodules. My symptoms got 80% improved. I still have 20% remain because I still have a lot of nodules on my thyroid. The procedure has its limitation, it can not do too small one (under 1 cm). But I would like to try again next time. The procedure is not available in North American. But it is wonderful thing, it can keep your thyroid. The only thing I have to pay off my own pocket. But who cares, as long as I feel well!

    Hi Staci,

    A huge YES! I get this and with it I also get other things like joint pains, flu feeling, tooth pain, etc..

    The last few days have been bad, and I feel like I'm suffocating at times. It's super hot in Florida where I live right now and it's making it worse.

    I saw someone's comment about thyroid, mine is fine, controlled with synthroid. So it's definitely not that. I've said all along that these are my version of a hot flash, it's torture. Wish I just had the hot sweaty kind too without all the other bs. Although nothing would be preferable! ha

      I went to Florida once and I will never go back. It is hotter than Satan's armpit. Honestly, the most stifling place I have ever been and I was no where near menopause at the time.

      I was there in September. We also had a hurricane and had to evacuate. Good times! Winter is rough, but my curly hair can't compete with rain showers everyday and humidity. Oh, and bugs everywhere! I will say it is beautiful though. And, shoveling the snow is the pits!!
