I am 49, was diagnosed with M.E/CFS three years ago, have been reasonably lucky in that I have been able to change my job and work role to accommodate symptoms etc and up until a few months ago felt in control of the illness. Then other new symptoms arrived on the scene, namely extreme anxiety, headaches, nausea, hot flushes etc. My periods are all over the place and my sleep is disturbed in that I am jolted awake each morning with palpitations, and a dreadful feeling of anxiety. Seen my gp who says sure I am going into menopause but wants to check my head with a ct scan as most days I wake with a headache and extreme nausea.
If this is ok I am going to try some HRT because I feel absolutely awful, never suffered with anxiety before and I feel it is affecting my whole life at the moment.
Any other me suffers gone or going through menopause? Am starting to feel unable to cope and that is not like me.
