Hi.I'm after some advice if what im going through sounds like Perimenopause.
ve been reading the posts with great interest after searching symtpoms that are driving me crazy.. My nan and mum both had early menopause I am 32 nearly 33 and didnt think could be hormones as young and being totally dismissed by GP, untill I saw a segment on this morning detailing similar symptoms... I have a long list of physical ongoing symptoms since Aug so over 6 months now..
are the symptoms of peri ongoing like this? My sysptoms are daily and the headaches are daily.
There are days or several days I feel ok (not as bad) then it hits again.. The DRs have prescirbed me anti Ds which I cant take as i am too sensative to meds so at the moment having accupuncture and councelling for anxiety.
This all started in Aug on a hangover, I had been having hot flushes but I drink allot due to the nature of my job and put it down to that and since stopping alcohol they seem to have subsided however i do get warm and sometimes think ive got a temperature normally in the upper chest area butthis doesnt happen often.
in Aug i was watching tv and got this wierd sensation in my head like it was shutting down, its hard to describe but like my brain was stopping I went to a&e and they said i had a pnic attack this happened a few times then the headaches started and ive had daily headaches since.. mri, eeg clear, all bloodtests clear, urine and chest x ray clear.. since then ive had various panic attacks, muscle twitching, a rushing feeling through my body and now they way it manifests itself is that I feel ill all the time, i cry and complain.. how do i feel so ill.. like a virus, im tired allot, i tire out just trying to speak, im an outgoing party girl and i dont feel like going out at all, i notice not often but sometimes my speech is odd like i have to think about it, also not often but does happen i walk into a room and cant remember why im there, my headaches are worse in the evenings, i feel faint, allot more so when i feel ill and if i have a panic attack now i feel as if im going to faint, im dizzy allot even at night and lying down and can feel faint all day blood pressure ok i suffer derealisation, anxiety, frequent urination worse at night it feels uncomfortable, i did also have a cyst on an ovary about 6 months ago and this went away on its own. i feel completely fed up and like i just want to go back to how i felt before all this..
I dont feel the Drs have helped me at all and ive just started accupuncture and am seeking therapy but even when i suggest the symptoms to ppl they seem unsure as there wasnt anything to trigger the anxiety and my physical symptoms are so ongoing and severe
Does anyone considering my family history think this could be peri and how do i get a definitive answer, i notice someone suggeted hormonre sticks.. i currently have the contracpetive implant and im going to get this out on wednesday so have no idea how my periods are
please help im so sick of feeling sick and getting me down, I really do feel that ill for 6 months now
