So after 10 months of irregular periods and a serious amount of symptoms, two nurses and two doctors not acknowledging my problems and basically wanting to shove anti depressants in my direction without diagnosing me I have finally found someone who listens .
I have been to see the long standing nurse practitioner of my GP surgery today. She listened and listened, questioned me to find things out, took into consideration my family history and then said yeah I think you're peri menopausal, she has took loads of blood and is getting EVERYTHING checked from my hormone levels, estrogen, to my thyroid and rheumatoid arthritis along with all the normal checks of organ functions.
Finally feel like I'm getting somewhere. My rib pain (my worst symptom at the minute)she is checking for inflammation possibly costochrondritis or fibromyalga and says to just take painkillers and use heat pads when necessary and to check in for blood results on Wednesday where we'll discuss further.
Feeling a tad more relaxed that I haven't got a life threatening illness and just going slightly mad with hormones haha.
Hope everyone is doing okay today. Squishy hugs to you all xxx Sheena xxx
