Anxiety & Dizziness....again!

Posted , 5 users are following.

Hi to all, sunday night I had an awful anxiety bout with dizziness, tense shaking etc...scared the sh**t outta me! haven't one like that for ages OMG thought I was going to die 😰 now I'm just feeling edgy & blah, just no right....weird swimmy head & face has been feeling hot which I think is either BP spikes or hormones, maybe a mixture of both.  So over this, have read that even though a year without periods it can still take another few years for everything to settle...really?!  am I ever going to be free of this? was planning to have the family-catch-up holiday I cancelled back in May BUT I've put it off...again!  am getting scared I'm going to be like this permanantly or I'm not going to survive this crap 😖😥 I'm thinking WT*! I've had a few good days now this, like one step forward ten backwards not happy!!! Thinking aloud "am I ever going to be able to 'cross the ditch' & have that family holiday?!" 

mmmmm wondering...........

Keep Well

      Hi Jay, Am taking Harmony Menopause tablets which are a herbal supplement as I'm not able to take HRT, not sure about seeing Dr to ask about antidepressants as I'm sensitive to what I take & how it effects me plus I'm on BP meds. This was just out of the blue...wham!...😭.                I live in Aussie, 12yrs now.  

      Take Care

      Hi Bobbins

      This is what i was going to mention - i too wont take HRT - and always said no to AD's - but i never knew low dose Anti Depressants are the HRT alternative - i tried Escitalopram in May and still on them - changed my life i must say - stopped my 20 plus hot flushes a day and took meno anxiety away too - 😀

    Hi Bobbins I know how you feel is there any light at the end of the tunnel lol. been back to docs because I'm still suffering blocked sinuses I feel like I've been kicked in the face and a bus is sitting on top of my head this feeling all the time doesn't help my anxieties. Sometimes  I have a lie in bed not too long but I don't know why I bother I just feel edgy and anxious all the time so I get up. I try to plan my day if I'm not at work but as soon as I think of going to the shops I always get the dreaded fear of omg what if something happens. I need to snap out of it docs keep telling me nothing wrong can I help being a born worrier ha ha. Take care hope your better soon xx

    Hi Bobbins ,I am with jayneejay on this one certainly feel that low dose AD help with the anxiety /low mood, maybe worth a try if you have not already . I too had a crisis with acute anxiety / depression a few months back was taking 10mg Seroxat ( been on it for years) doctor advised to up the dose to 20 mg (still low dose) within a couple of weeks felt much ,much better and able to get on with my life ! Good luck x
