Today I have finally been given the diagnosis of going through the menopause after 5 months of numerous tests. I have been suffering from too many symptoms to list but have had heart scans, an endoscopy, abdominal and pelvic scans. I literally felt like I was going mad as all the test results were normal yet I knew something was wrong. My periods stopped in April and I started suffering from gastro problems and hot flushes/night sweats. My anxieties and thoughts are at times totally irrational and I feel like I have tremors/shivers. Today's diagnosis came through my insistance on having my hormone levels checked after reading posts on this forum.
On visiting the GP today, who I must say was of little help, I was told to google HRT before making a decision on whether I wanted to start taking it or not, although I am thinking maybe to follow the alternative route and try vitamins etc. I am currently taking Sage and Well Woman vits as had a feeling I was menopausal and today I have been prescribed with Calcium tablets. I really do not know where to go from here and the best supplements to take, although I have read B12? Any help or info would be greatly received. I am 39 so I know this is premature and have no family history of early menopause, however I have had the Mirena coil for 10years (always still had regular periods with this) and have read this can cause early onset. I have so many questions and have no idea where to find the answers? Thanking you in anticipation!
