Hello I just joined today. I would like to run my symptoms by you and see what you think. I'm having a really hard time. Sorry that this post will be pretty long.
I'm 45 years old and something quite dramatic happened to me before christmas. But first I would like to tell you how things have changed for me over the last two years. Two years ago I was due to change my coil.. So that was done but I constantly bled.. Which was unusual for me because I've always had the coil.. I was sent for the scan and all was ok. So they said it will settle.. It didn't.. We tried all the coils and everyone made me bleed... We tried the progesterone pill and that made me bleed ( I can't have the combined pill) so my husband takes care of that side of things now. The doctor said this must just be your age and the coil and pill just don't agree with you anymore. But after that my periods have never been the same. They come early or come late.. I spot for days and days before she kicks in.
. I bleed heavy than I ever did and they can last two weeks....I've had a biopsy and scan and all is fine. Then two weeks before christmas My eyes started to feel strange and I had sharp little shooting pains in my temples..as the day went on it became very weird. I can only describe it as looking at my family through a sheet of glass. Almost like I wasn't there. Everything behind them seemed blurred and they seemed to stand out. I've since learned this is a feeling of being detached. Then I had pressure between the eyes. The next morning I went straight to the doctors and they told me it was sinusitus. I had no runny nose or pain so I found this odd. So I went home and steamed and took ibrufen like it was told to. A few days past and I woke up depressed.. I don't mean just a bit sad I mean really depressed. A massive cloud hovering over me.. Couldn't eat, sleep and everything just seemed wrong and I was soo soo sad and distressed. We called the doctor and she said yes sinusitus can make you feel this way and that I was looking at two weeks of this feeling. This went on another week.. I was in a hell of a state. My husband took me to see another doctor who confirmed I had depression. She put me on 15 mg of citropram. The week that followed was absolutely hell. It lifted the sadness but omg the anxiety was horrendous. After another week of suffering like this I told my husband I'm feeling I can't go on. So he took me back and they put me on 30mg of mirtrazapene and I was told to stop the citropram. The next day was amazing I felt so much better until recently. The anxiety started creeping back in. But here's the thing. I haven't had a period since November.. And when I think back all this started a week before I was due in December... And my anxiousness started last week when I was due again and she hasn't arrived. I have no hot flushes or anything like that. Do you think this is premenopause .? Can it cause sudden depression like this? My doctor won't do the test because she says it's never accurate. Would appreciate your advice and experience .. Nicky's
