extreme fatigue

Posted , 10 users are following.

I  have posted yesterday about urinary / vaginal problems I am experiencing but need to ask something else too. I feel pathetic at the moment. I cry at everything and feel useless. My mood is so low but I don't know if it is this that is making me so tired or my fatigue making me low. I don't mean just tired but totally exhausted like it is difficult to put one foot in front of the other, I look at other people and want their energy. It is like a whole body tiredness. Does anyone else find this? My cancer fear is going into overdrive.

    One thing i know is to fret not, u r human and normal....we as ladies going thru this have many emotions, highs and lows, as well as fearing the worst is or could possibly be happening to our bodies....try and get out of your head, we think and focus to much on our symptoms and not enuff on positive things....and yes vagina problems comes with perimenopause and menopause....dont mean to sound insensitive but I'm right there with you try some B12 liquid form that tends to help me

    Why are you worrying about cancer? I feel exhausted most of the time too and I have trouble waking up if I don't have work I can sleep in for several hours but I still feel exhausted. I feel useless and cry often and have had anxiety for several years which I have realised is pretty standard when going through menopause. Please know that you're not alone and all of us on here understand x

      Is Premique HRT? I was put off HRT because a friend of mine was on it for years and when she was taken off it she started getting menopause symptoms again in her 60's. I'm trying to get through with Black Cohosh for most symptoms and Matazapine for anxiety. I do feel better than 2 years ago when I didn't take them but still not great.

    Sue, has any doctor checked your thyroid function? I felt exactly as you do for 2 years.  My GP was worse than useless.  My hair started falling out and my periods stopped at 40.  I went to an ob/gyn and she send me to an endocrinologist, who tested me for hypothyroidism.  Hope this helps.

    Darling, I'm so with you on this. I'm post meno and have similar. I think you have health anxiety and perhaps it developed into some general anxiety with a bit of depression. Go see your Dr to begin with and I assume, he will agree. There are many options for dealing with it all.
