Anyone?

Posted , 14 users are following.

so i had 3 weeks there where i was feeling pretty good and almost myself, was put on a blood pressure pill with a beta blocker and things were moving along nicely. 2 days before my period i was feeling pretty tired then bam the period comes and i have just been extremely exhausted, anxious, dizzy and pressure in my head and just over all washed out. ive taken an iron pill over the last 2 days hoping it would help but it hasnt really done much. anyone else ever feel lime this or have any suggestions. im so frustrated that i had 3 good weeks before all this. is this my hormone levels? usually once my period begins some of this stuff subsides

    I feel just like you, at this exact moment. I started my period last Thursday and ever since, it's been hell. ANXIETY through the roof, head pressure, wobbly legs, bloating, doom and dread feeling...

    It was so bad I had a panic attack Saturday...

    Yes.. This period thing is frustrating!! About a week before I get bad cravings and eat like there's no tomorrow. Anxiety, cramps, no patience, heavy period and exhaustion all comes with it. Ohh yes and the headache/head pressure too-- that's the worst for me!! Just be good to yourself drink a lot of water and nap if you need too. I do take iron a few times a week as well because I don't want my iron levels to get too low from these heavy periods.

    I was just thinking the same thing. I'm 52 and already on an anti-depressant, low dose birth control to help. But when it comes to that time of month, they still haven't stopped and I get so anxious, moody and just don't feel right at all. I hate it!! I wish there was something else I could do during this week. YUCK!!

    Have had everything you all talk about and more . My worst is I have developed a tremor in my hands and feel a tremor in my chest and have jelly legs. Mood swings, hot flashes, head spells, dizzy, balance issues, extreme fatigue and so much more. Menopause sucks. Just want my old self back.

    With you 100%. There are days that I feel "sort of" like myself, then wham the next morning I feel really off, light-headed, heart racing, spacey, wobbly, chest pressure, nausea, and just plain weird. No matter how many times these symptoms knock me off my feet I feel surprised by them and anxiety kicks in. It never feels similar enough to not cause me stress and worry. My period is heavy and erratic. Sometimes it comes every two weeks. Which is exhausting and quite literally draining! I have started taking iron recently because my blood work says my red count is low. I have had so many damn tests, and the doctors just don't really know what to tell me other than "it's probably 'just' perimenopause". The issue I have is that it feels so atypical as to what most friends around my age are experiencing. They get hot flashes, have insomnia, and weight gain - all very common peri symptoms. But all the other crazy things I experience are not happening to them. I feel very comforted to be on this site and hear that others are having a similar experience to mine. Because honestly I feel a little crazy and despondent at times.

      Mel, I totally sympathize with you. You said it all exactly how I would have. Some days want to just go back to bed because I feel so uncomfortable in my body. Let's hope we get our break soon and that it sticks for good. We deserve it living through this menopause hell. Hugs to you!
