Eye Dizziness,

Posted , 7 users are following.

hi ladies, I am new here just join few days. 39+. I have almost had all the 60 symptoms of peri meno. The most awful one is this eye dizziness, as if I have not slept for some days peppering at times. Early Jan dis year wasn't good at all I had terrible anxiety, palpitations, panic attack, migraines at fore head, I can't concentrate, shaking body atimes, I thought I am dying, done all tests all normal..gosh.. then had strongest hot flush that lasted some hours, I haven't had it again except feeling body hot atimes, crying a lot, I cannot be on my own, feeling scared all the time, distance myself from friends, I was so scared to the extent I have to remove my pictures from Facebook thinking someone is after me, it was awful & terrible experience.  The most annoying part now is this eye heavy & dizziness other feelings come down a bit I am managing now. My period too has become irregular but comes every months just days apart. WHEN WILL I BE OKAY. I feel am not myself again. Thank you.

    All I can offer is to say welcome to the new phase of being a woman.  Hormones are going into over drive and some will be diminishing causing our body to have a whole bunch of new symptoms, and sensations.  Hormones are used by all areas of the body and so when they are starting to fade the body goes into overdrive.  My gynocologist told me that all we can really do is treat the symptoms because your body has to go through this.....what works for one may not work for the other.  I have pretty much every symptoms except the hot flushes...the only time I have ever experienced them is when I had anxiety which in my opinion was brought on by perimenopause.  I have done several things to help me get less symptoms, one is I had my blood tested to check out if anything was going on, I had low iron, magnesium, progestrone and estrogen, B12....so I supplemented and started eating a bit better, I also am working on trying to get my gut and liver working better.  I use essential oils, use a bio identical progestrone cream that I apply 15 days into my cycle, I also get acupucture and this has helped with pain and burning pain that I was getting.  I still get odd symptoms, but not to the full degree that I was and I feel like I have my life back again.....Praise God!

      Hi Linda

      How long have you been using the progesterone cream? I have been using it also and it seem to help my anxiety along with the b12. When I took the break off for the 2 weeks, my anxiety returned . I think I may need phytoestrogen also.

      Because I started to get vaginal dryness, digestion flared up (which had went away) bladder issue ( sympton left when period came on) and anxiety really bad right now. I did do full blood work by my chiropractor and low in iron, hormones way off..

      Hi Mercy,  So the cream I count 15 days into my cycle...the day period starts is day 1......on day 15 in the evening before bed I take the prescibed dose (2 pumps) and rub it on my inner arm, I switch arms each night so it is getting evening absorbed.  Progestrone starts to rise normally mid cycle (day 15) so this bio identical adds extra to my diminishhing hormone.....this was prescribe by a natural practitioner made at a comounding pharmacy.  I too had the vaginal dryness and I was given estrial vaginal cream, estrial is the weakest estrogen....again bio identical, I didn't use it long enough and found something else that has really helped me and it isn't a hormone.  The bladder issue, yes I had that too, at first it felt like a chronic UTI and my uretha felt inflammed and when tests showed there was no infection we knew it was the estrogen decreasing.  I started keeping a diary each month and started seeing a pattern.  I even felt the gums in my mouth were burning, and I found this has a lot to do with hormones diminishing as well.  The acupuncture has really helped with my bladder, joint pain and anxiety alog with the B12.....the iron supplements have helped with fatigue and dizziness....but again I got blood work to show I was defiecient I just didn't start to take them because I was guessing.  I had been seeing a chiropractor for 10 years for my lower back issue, but in truth I was finding when I started this phase the chiropractor was making everything worse.....so I stopped and my back feels better.  It is not cheap especially when I have no coverage, but the way I was feeling before I felt like my life was being stolen from me and I was not going to let it get me...so I researched and found products, and supplements that worked for many people.  I also take probiotics for my stomach and bowels, and a vaginal probiotic right after my period because the PH gets altered after a period and that is when I was feeling bladder issues. ....so I hope this helps a bit.  It sounds like we have had the same things going on.....I am feeling better than I was last year....thank goodness.

    Hi Mercy OMG I am reading my symptons. I am right now in bed because I have no energy just weakness all over. I have been waking up with anxiety and my mind is constantly going.

    I have been praying and reading scriptures, I feel like I'm losing it.

    My period is on this week and the day it started I have been having extreme body weakness especially when I wake up alone with the anxiety. It usually lessen up in the afternoon or evening.

    My legs feels like jello when I walk. I get the shaking also and inside tremors..body burning, etc.

    I am thinking of going to ER but I am tired of going to drs. And medical bills are piling up.

    So very hard for me to concentrate or do anything.

    Do you have any type of birth control device? I read that the paraguard IUD causes anxiety and other symptons . I do have one and I have made an appt to get it out.

    You are not alone in this...HUGS?

      Hi Mary thanks for your contribution.. I am calm now knowing I am not alone. I am not using any birth control and I have not use any, I gave birth my last child 5 yrs ago. After all the series of Tests and nothing was seen, I decided to help myself by eating a lot of veggies & fruits, eat raw white cabbage everyday, cucumber, carrots & watermelon mostly I eat them on empty stomach before breakfast that has help lessen my symptoms.  HUGS cool

    Hi mercy, know how you feel. Nightmare all of this. When I started menapause it was the hot flushes and the really bad dizziness for me. I ended I last year going on hrt patches ( which I really didn't want to ) but was really bad. I must admit best thing I did, my hot flushes have gone and I don't get much dizziness anymore. Hope this helps xx

    Hi. I have gone through 9 weeks of dizzy sensation. In my head is weird, not vertigo. All sorts of symptoms. I have seen my internist, a neurologist, an eye Dr, an ENT. It is probably vestibular related ( as in vestibular neuritis or silent vestibular migraines. Other symptoms kept coming up done on and off. Eventually I began vestibular exercises, look it up, join a fb forum for these symptoms, it does help, such as chronic subjective dizziness or vertigo and dizziness. I am healing and for the first time in my life, I am on 0.5 mg once a day Xanax. I rarely take any medicine, not even Advil... It's a long road but it ends.

      Mine are different. Not really headachy, sometimes light headache. What is your dizziness like? My eyes, especially the right one gets heavy and tired feeling. Computer screens sometimes bring it on. I think you may have anxiety. But I'm not Dr. Can you stand feet together, arms outstreched in front, eyes closed for ten secs? Can you touch your nose then in that same position, eyes closed quickly alternating index fingers? Can you do the drunk test, walking on a line?
