Every morning upon waking I start shaking and heart starts beating like it's going to jump out my chest. My hand is shaking ( if I hold out hand it's basically like this all day) . I visit an endocrinologist yesterday and basically was a waste of time and money. She really wasn't going to do anything until I suggested to check my thyroid. She goes "oh your skin is so soft but I dont feel any nodules." Duhh ..i assume so that my skin would be soft from all the weight loss. (Sagging skin) I asked her to do bloodwork she said that it was no need to do bloodwork on my hormones since I already know I'm going through perimenopause. So i said can you do bloodwork on my thyroid? She agreed to check thyroid. She said she thinks it's just anxiety which triggering all the problems. (Stomach issue, weigh loss, etc) then wanted to know if anyone else in my family suffer with anxiety? She basically wrote two prescriptions, one for anxiety and the other for heart palpitations. As usual I leave out with my anxiety prescription. My question is I thought something usually brings on the anxiety? In my case just sitting still brings it or any type of movement. I wake up this way and usually last all day. Is this really anxiety? Though i have periods of really heavy anxiety, it usually come around the same time daily. Mornings, between 12 noon - 3pm. and I get a free hour of lightness, and again between 5pm - 7pm. Afterward, it lightens up. All symptons usually disappear until I go to bed. When they come on
really bad during these time..i get so weak, shaky, and such an awful feeling like I just can't go on.
This is a constant feeling all day long.
One day I was driving by ER and the feeling came on and I drove right to ER. They did bloodwork, ekg, CT scan on pelvis and abdomen, x ray, and pretty much told me that's it's anxiety. Like yesterday, again I walked out with another anxiety prescription.
Sorry to rant on, but my question is if it's anxiety, why is it constant and not brought on by something? I think my body is so sensitive to these hormonal changes whereas it's bringing stress to the body??
What's your view or comment? I'm tired of going in circles and wasting my money.
