Anyone else feel like this.

Posted , 6 users are following.

There are so so many different things people recommend just don't know what to do.  I am goin gon holiday to Oz 2 weeks on Sunday so want to try and grin and bare it until I get back then visit doctor.  I wake every morning with headache and feeling of fear that something bad will happen, it is the worst feeling in the world.  For the past 6 months my periods have been sporadic, I didn't have one for 8-9 weeks then Tuesday it came, quite heavy for 2 days today seems very light, I can deal with the period part of it,its the physcological part of it I am finding so difficult, and have started having a few glasses of wine each night to relax me, I know its not the answer but it helps at the time, wish we could just find a miraculous cure x

    I also agree the psychological part of this is way worse for me than anything physical. I know because of this forum that we are not alone and that helps. I hate that I have depend on medication, but I just increased my dose of antidepressant. I just couldn't suffer anymore with the health anxiety and worrying all the time!! It was taking over my life. I am hoping it is going to kick in and give me some relief soon. ((Hugs))

      Hi 2chr,

      yes this is my main issue right now, so many things wrong and drs have no idea whats wrong. Lots of tests scans, ultrasounds nothing much shows up. Only my hormone test shows im menopausal, if only i could be told definately these are all hormones being nasty to me.

      Health anxiety is pretty awful, im taking ad meds too, waiting like you for relief. I try really hard not to worry, eat well, rest, read, do crosswords etc etc. im being kind to myself, coz no one else will!

      I hope we both improve with each new day, healing hugs to you🌺

      It is the worst feeling ever, and I can't help thinking when I come back from my holiday mid February and go to the doctor it will be a case of anti-depressant but don't want to rely on this, my main thing for the past few days have been headaches, not sure if this is because I am having really bad period or not, but feel I can;t function with the headaches, paracetamol, iboprofen don't help, and the Dr won't give me co-codamol as I had an addiction to them 10 years ago, driving me crazy, hope you feel better soon ((Hugs back))
