Feeling Terrible Today

Posted , 8 users are following.

I felt fine this morning and then all of a sudden felt off balance, this has thrown me into what I think must be a panic attack.  My legs feel weak, I'm off balance, feel like I'm trembling inside.  I've never felt like this before, has anyone else?  I am 51 and my last period was 63 days ago.  I am expecting one to start, maybe that is what this is.

    I had this about a mont ago .  I was away from home and actually delayed my flight hi,e thinking I was ill.  I had a weird head feeling, wobbly legs, no appetite. Knowing Inhadnto fly home made me anxious so it got worse.

    There are so many bloody horrible symptoms to this process. Vertigo is but one and it sounds to me as if youve had an episode and because you dont know what it is, youve gone on to have a panic attack. Try not to worry and keep as calm as you can as anxiety will only make you feel worse. It is an unpleasant feeling but all part and parcel of meno so I am sure its nothing serious. If the attacks get more frequent or worse then see your dr there are meds that can be given to you for this. XXX

    I know that feeling all too well. I don’t get it that much anymore, i’m 55 but earlier in my pedi I actually would get that same feeling. I’m fact at work one day it was so bad they called an ambulance and I went to the hospital. Of course they found nothing wrong with me. My anxiety would go through the roof. I’ve calmed down a lot because i’ve Had enough tests to know I’m ok so I try not to get so anxious.
