Dear ladies, I read your posts regularly, and I have learned about some symptoms of peri/meno. I have some of them, and I hoped that some of them I would avoid. It seems to me now, that it is not my case.
Just for summary, I am 55, still with periods (last month only spotting, and some last month the periods were "strange", pinkish, or like prolonged spotting, three periods with strange anxiety and depression).
Last two years I had mainly physical symptoms - heavy bleeding with flooding, pains, bloating, night sweating, fatique, etd. Last year those symptoms seemed to lift off, and I felt healthy, strong, energetic.
However, since this spring, new symptoms appeared. I feel horrible. Mornings are horrible, depressive, I am full of anxiety a fears. My health anxiety is over the roof. I started with night sweats again. Cannot stand hot weather, rooms, clothes, etc. during the day.
Hands shaking, several panick attacks, feeling like fainting soon. Strange hot feeling over my face and arms (hands sweating) with panick several time during the day (are those hot flashes? Had not yet), whoosh whoosh feeling in my head, arms when falling asleep, "hearing" my blood in my veins (strange, is it?)
I want to cry, yell, run away, hide somewhere, afraid of going mad. Is this how my life will be?
Actually, I am afraid of future... I am going to be ill, sick, etc.all the time?
What to say more... I exercise regularly, love walking, try racewalking.
Love coffee and chocolates, but otherwise eat healthy. Have a nice husband, job is good.
Cannot see other causes to may metal state that peri.
Please tell me that this is all normal...
