      Sorry. I'm nearly 50, not 51. Don't know what happened there. Ive been told by gp going through it because of symptoms but didn't have blood test. Because I don't get periods because of coil hard to know what's happening. I'm on evorel patches anyway....

      Have you been on them long? I ha to have my HRT increase to a higher dosage as my symptoms became a lot like yours .. Anxiety & sweats awful! Do you feel anxious when you wake in the morning?

      Hi. I upped the dose to 75 a few months ago. Because I have had anxiety in the past the doctors put everything down to that and don't seem to take menopause symptoms seriously

    Yes..  This is me!   I too felt great the last couple weeks.  Running on treadmill, focusing on my diet, getting 'things' down around the house and important errands.  I felt good about how life is.  But this week I'm exhausted and no energy.  So am I wearing myself out with simple things.. IDK..

    Hi Alison, I'm not a fan of the Mirena coil as had bad effects from it. I have had hrt in pill form but due to regular bouts of diahorrea dr changed me to patches and is looking into BHRT for me instead. I still get extreme anxiety but my dr put me on low but regular dose of diazepam and it helps alot! If you prefer the natural route valerian is good for the anxiety and for sleep. A good high strength menopause vitamin supplement is essential. Vit D, B complex, and high strength evening primrose oil for breast tenderness. Hope this info helps. XXX

    Thats hormones, I totally understand. I had to leave work the otherday because of my anxiety. I never use to have them. Seems like my minds always going. One minute I just feel anxious. Have you thought about changing birth  control?
