Cold legs and anxiety making me depressed

Posted , 4 users are following.


New to group and looking for any help anyone can suggest. I had my last period July 2016 and all was ok until beginning February. I have seen 3 doctors, the last a lady, who says I am having menopause. She has advised looking for things to do about it like hrt etc and wonder if anyone can suggest anything.

My main symptoms are cold legs and feet, lack of sleep and appetite, hot flushes although have lessened slightly and have lost my get and go. Also feeling depressed.

Have read on here about vitamin b6 and d, but wondering if anyone else can suggest things to take.

Many thanks.

    2 words...ME TOO!

    I have very cold hands, legs & feet. Than other times my hands & feet will sweat, literally drip!

    I have lost about 15 lbs...I’m so nauseous & have terribly upset stomach & digestive potty issues ranging from constipation to running for the commode!

    I know how u feel...I understand. 

    I’m also facing anxiety & depression. Just got diagnosed very low in B Complex vitamins, iron, D & C Vitamins. Bad insomnia & nite panics. Hoping supplements will begin to help. I’m not functioning well & feel a bit depressed like you.  Sharing helps us not feel like we need to be committed 😖😊??🙏 I wish you luck...get a full Endocrinologist work up for EVERYTHING!!! Maybe u need supplements?!
