Complicated history.

Posted , 9 users are following.

I started perimenopause at 35. I was put on hrt as symptoms were severe. Had a heart attack at 42 so taken off hrt. Had a full hysterectomy at 44 and went on hrt. Now 49 and have to come off hrt. I feel like I've been hit by a bus. I have fibromyalgia which doesn't help. It is affecting my eyesight, my limbs don't work, I'm dizzy and sick all the time. How long will this go on and can I do anything to ease the symptoms. My diet is very healthy and I've taken up chair yoga. I am pretty immobile and can't go out alone.

    Jeez Tracy, you've sure been through the ringer. Did any of what happened to you result from being on the HRT? Why did you have to come off HRT?

    Last I read from medical peer reviews, 14 years, + or - 5.

    Also, most Fibromyalgia can be cured, unless you have a nerve that's causing the damage. What's causing yours?

      Suzanne, I'm not understanding your question. If you're on something it should reduce the effects. Here im talking about women who don't take anything for the roller coaster ride of hot flushes that can come and go.

      When I quit drinking anything with sugar, coffee and tea my hot flushes stop bothering me. What i found works best is ISage it really works to give relief and most symptoms will also go away.

    Hi Tracy - Wow! I am so sorry for your suffering.  I do hope you find relief soon for your discomfort.  I am hoping you could describe in full your symptoms of fibromyalgia.  I am beginning to think I might have it, but I just don’t know - Be well -
