Hi, I'm in peri (47) and lately have been getting dizzy spells and feel shaky and extra anxious. It doesn't help that I already had PTSD before peri kicked it up more. I've been on the mini pill for a few years tho it seems useless. The dizzy spells started happening around my period but this week it kicked up and I haven't gotten a period which also makes me worry I'm closer to menopause. Tho I am continuously taking the mini pill (but it usually doesn't stop my period). Guessing my hormones are nose-diving again. It's baffling to me doctors can't just give you more of whatever hormone and balance me out but they tell me they can't, it's too tricky. Wondering 2 things. #1 Based on your experience, do these dizzy spells usually mean you're months away from menopause or have any of you had peri dizzy spells for years? #2 What can I do? Have any of you found a way to make the dizzy spells stop or become less frequent or a way to feel better during a dizzy spell? Other than stay away from caffeine and lie motionless in bed? (I regret drinking a few glasses of iced tea at lunch tho other weeks I've done the same with no issue.) Thanks ladies!!!
