I have been through a real rollercoater of emotions over the past year and the last 4 months have been a living hell. I have a history of a anxiety but had been coping well for many years with SSRIs. Recently my anxiety rocketed to ridiculous proportions and I dont mind admitting I got so desperate I didnt want to keep living. My doctors were useless, shoving sleeping tablets at me. Eventually I was recommended a lovely lady consultant outside of my area. I had to ask to be referred out of area but it was the best thing I did. Finally I found someone who listened to me and understood what was happening for me. She suggested I have a Mirena coil fitted and start on HRT in an attempt to help me get my life back. I have now had the coil for 2 weeks and have been taking estradiol 2mg for just over a week.
I was feeling ok but this weekend my anxiety reared its head from nowhere and I experienced panic again last night for the first time in a few months. A lot of the posts on this site are anti-HRT. Does anyone have positive experiences?
Does anyone have experience of those early days with HRT? Ive just started to bleed so don't know if its linked to my cycle still? I also have a rushing feeling in my head and legs like I'm super aware of my pulse.
I'm trying to remain rational so some positive experiences of HRT would be helpful
Thank you ladies
