Feeling drunk and weak

Edited , 12 users are following.

Hi Ladies,

Have had a bad couple of days. Needing some support. For two days, I have been walking around feeling like I'm having an out of body experience. I feel almost removed from my body-muscles are weak, I am nauseated, can barely concentrate, pressure in my head. And I feel like I'm impaired. It has happened to me before, and I get so down about it. And it comes on unexpectedly! I had just arrived at work, things went downhill within minutes, and I had to go home. I cried for a long time when I got home. This time of life is so hard. People who aren't going through it just don't get it. I just want to feel normal again, and not have to worry about these very alarming symptoms. I know acceptance is key, but some days, I just don't feel it.

    Right there with you, Cindy! For a while there, I was vomitting from the dizziness, etc. Had diarrhea for weeks. Peri and menopause have been by far, worse than periods, puberty, and pregnancy! And I have severe endometriosis with fibroids, that made life miserable. Honestly, I'd take that hell back. At least I was thin and had decent hair. This middle aged new me crap is for the birds! Hope you feel better. If for no other reason than that you sre NOT alone.

    It sounds like symptoms of a migraine. I get exactly what you've described when I'm having a migraine episode.
