    Hi Karen, was it like vertigo or just dizzy sick head feeling? I found with vertigo if you spot something and keep staring at it the vertigo will stop. If it’s dizzy sick head feeling, just do what you did, sit down and wait for it to go away. I have both kinds. Really think it’s all part of hormones just like all our other stupid symptoms.  As well as our brains tricking us to believe it’s worse case scenario.  I have an ulcer on the bottom of my tongue, so painful, of course o

    I google and cancer comes up, so that’s my new worry of the week. And still worrying about uterine cancer too. Ugh. Why do we do this to ourselves?  

    You’ll be ok!! Hormones just rot

    Hi Karen.

    I started peri menopause at 46, when my periods became rather erratic, and that was really the only symptom...apart from dizziness.  I'd be fine one minute, then feeling as if  I was about to pass out the next.  It's a horrible feeling as everything spins and sways around and the only way I could deal with it was to sit down - no matter where I was!  I was with my granddaughter,on one occasion, who was 3 at the time, and we were leaving an Asda store.  Right at the doors I started feeling dizzy, so had to kneel down (right in the doorway!) and pretend to be looking for something in my shopping bags.  It passed over within about a minute or so, but there was always the worry each time that I would actually lose consciousness.  It never happened though, and I suppose I should have seen my GP, but I was always fine between times.  Now, at 55, it has become less and less, and I honestly can't remember the last time it happened.

    If it happens in supermarkets it's very useful to get into the habit of always taking a shopping trolley, no matter how little you are buying.  It gives you something to hold onto and you can stop and lean over the trolley if you need to ('looking' at your shopping list, or phone!).

    See your GP if you are really worried, but otherwise try not to worry, it does pass with time x

      Thank you Louise I do always walk round in super markets with a trolley because I used to get the dizziness nearly every day until I went on hrt. Font get it often now but today frightened me it came from nowhere I thought I'd hot over it, been nearly 3 years now. Been to Drs said it's part of menopause, had all bloods done and everything was do it on. Just me been over sensitive with having health anxiety xx
