Fatigued and scared

HI ladies.

I feel like I've been on here a lot lately, but my peri is really putting me through the ringer lately. I am experiencing extreme fatigue today. Feel it everywhere, even in my face and throat. Running to bathroom as well. And crying, because it scares me. Just reaching out to you because you help me

    Hi Cindy, I just got finished writing down my symptoms for the day, (I do that every day) and they are exhaustion fatigue weak legs pass out feeling low sugar scared sad shaky dizzy health anxiety gloom and doom, and very worried (about everyone and everything) why I don't know just stupid hormones! I will go eat and now and hopefully feel a bit better.. I write my symptoms everyday and check back each month and they are always the same, todays symptoms match lasts months and the month before ECT... To the days.. I don't get periods had hysterectomy so have no idea where um at in my journey so it helps to track symptoms like this.. Just wanted to let you know your not alone I'm feeling the same.. Hang in there!

    I completely understand your anxiety. I put myself through a series of tests recently because I thought for sure something was terribly wrong! Back in November, I had so much weakness, it felt difficult to hold my head up. I felt shaky and weak. I'd have random areas in my extremities that would go numb or tingly for days at a time. I'd be constipated one day and be running to the bathroom the next. If you haven't checked things out, always good rule of thumb to do so, but if theres one thing I've learned, the human body is not predictable like we want it to be. We have the worst fears and we jump to the worst conclusions and its very rarely what we think it is. My best advice is try to relax (I take Bach's Rescue Remedy- which helps), stay off GOOGLE (because symptoms will always point to the worst things and give you the impression you have some rare disease- been there, done that!) and go get it checked out with your GP.

      Hi! THANK you! I have had every test imaginable- doctor says it's peri. But on days like this, I always assume we've missed something. I have three bottles of Rescue Remedy spread all over the house- it is good! But the physical symptoms are rough today. Thank you for reaching out. ❤

    You'll be OK--- you have your rescue remedy which is good. When I have bouts of fatigue I take naps, watch a movie and do the bare minimum. I also double up on some supplements to make sure I'm getting what I need... Stay hydrated and take deep breaths----I do this when I feel my mind is going haywire. Take Care

    hi cindy! i hope you are feeling better today. it sure is comforting to know we aren't going through this alone. i have been through the crashing fatigue. For me, it comes and goes. When its here, I just go with it like Kelly said. I watch tv, snuggle with my puppy and do as little as possible. if I'm not worrying about my symptoms, I will be worrying about my husbands or sons. it is never ending. It's bad enough stressing about my self!! i don't have rescue remedy because i take prescription stuff unfortunately. Doesn't work for this apparently. I'm so sorry you were having a rough day. I hope you are feeling better ((hugs))

      Thank you for reaching out! Things are better today by a little bit. I did manage to run some errands, and now am cuddling with my dogs. My biggest obstacle is acceptance and just allowing myself to float through the bad days. I am thankful for you and other ladies on here.
