advice needed

Posted , 9 users are following.

Hello ladies, how happy am I to have found u guys smile I have had months of hell with what I think is peri menopausal symptoms. I have been in a&e so many times with palpitations which I have been monitoring and are coming from day 10 of my cycle until the day I start my period.  I have panic attacks and anxiety around that time coupled with hot or cold flashes, nausea and fatigue. My skin is shocking and my hair keeps falling out.  My poor husband doesn't know what to do anymore. I've gone from being a social butterfly to being frightened to have a social drink for fear of 'an attack' my good week though I can do anything.  My GP put me on citalopram which made me so much worse I've had to stop it. I'm interested in your comments about vitamins and alternative therapies. I am a nurse myself and have been tested for all causes which were negative.  I'm currently taking feroglobin b12 which I think is working and omega cod liver oil. Is there anything else you could suggest?

       If BP keeps going high due to meno ,HRT will be a no go ,I've just got some Premeno ovules ,trying those ,go check them out .Jay on here says they've helped her .

     Look up the 65 symptoms of meno ,that was placed 4 months ago ,that may help relieve some of the fear .premeno non HRT ,forgot to add .Stress no more .

      Mazza 

      premeno ovules are only for vaginal dryness, mainly for post meno ladies, unless you have that problem already..

      B6 is good and Maca 5.1 ( 2500mg) capsules, theres plenty of things out there.. 

      i also take them and menapol plus capsules daily amongst other things 

      i am aged 50 and 16 months post meno, i had a ten year natural peri so  experienced the lot along the way

      B6 100mg helps anxiety and energy, even my doc gave me that years ago

      i now take 150mg B6 daily its great for me personally 

      good luck

      Thank you jay! No I'm just peri at present I think! My cycle however is now every 24 days instead of 30/32. It's anxiety and sleeplessness with palpitations that get me down. I've bought menopace today from Holland and Barrett fingers crossed, it's loaded with b6 x

    Hi I'm glad I found this group too. I have low thyroid, diabetes, depression anxieties, and high blood pressure. I have been dealing with peri menopause and it seems that I have had a lot of palpitations, tiredness and mood swings. I'm glad I'm not the only one who goes through this.

    Hello....I am 49 yes tars old, and for the past year my periods have been very irregular, sometimes very heavy and sometimes spotting.  And only this week I have started to have night sweats and a few hot flashes throughout the day... and have been wanting to sleep lots ie feel tired all the time. I therefore am assuming that this is the beginning of my menopause. After reading Mazza44 it appeart at the moment I am getting of lightyly!  but I too am interested in anything that I can take to help.

      Hi karen, today I've been and bought some magnesium spray for night times and some menopace tablets, fingers crossed these work, a future of anxiety and panic is not what I want 😔
