Feeling very scared over dizziness and anxiousness.

I will be 50 in about three months. I have been dealing with like a spacey lightheadness for about two months now as well as I have only have about two days of spotting during this time . And like my anxiousness have exploded . My doc suggested anti depressants which I really don't want to take . Any advice . Also anyone experience dizziness . I do think my anxiety is bringing that on. Thanks smile

    Hi Tami, unfortunately YES!  My two biggest, most uncomfortable symptoms are dizziness and anxiety.   I represent high end real estate and these combined symptoms make my day light almost uncontrollable.

    My GYN also suggested AD and I tried them for about a week.  It put me into a severe depression, so I immediately discontinued.   

    All I can suggest is exercise and meditation and just tell yourself this too will change as nothing stays the same.  It's symptoms as the result of menopause and imbalances hormones.   Sooooooo imbalanced your legs are wobbly to the tune of I never thought grocery shopping could be SO challenging!!

    Feel better and I'm thinking of you.

    Yes I have experienced all that and more! The foggy, forgetfulness, crying jags, sadness, hot flashes,sleepness nights, anxiety through the roof, itchy legs to name a few....lol! I absoulutely refused any anti-deppressants as I just knew it was more than that. I did my homework and found out that all this "crap" is because of the loss of hormones. I am 52 yrs old and currently on Bio-Identical Hormone Replacent Therapy and I cant be more happy. Most of if not all of the symptoms I had are gone completely or greatly reduced! I am finally sleeping through the night! And the hot flashes are completely gone!  I am 4 weeks into my therapy and I know it takes time to find MY optimal hormone level as each one of us is very different. Maybe if you look into BIHRT this could benefit you as well! Hope this helps! Believe me you do not have to live with this "crap"!! smile

    Hi Tami, Your not on your own, its concerning i know i have the same feeling of being spaced out, dizzy i get a metallic taste as well, i know im through memopause as i recently had a blood test after moaning about horrendous sweats feelings of dread for about 8 years, The results showed i was depleated in hormone oestrogen. This was a couple of months ago i halso had to fight to get HRT, because apparently i didnt need it , i soon put her right and mentioned i had osteoarthritis and did not want Osteoporosis so i was prescribed a doseage of estradiol 1mg. I did have the dizziness before going this so i know its not that, im also waiting for a detailed eye exam as my optican saw that my optic nerve is enlarged so it may have something to do with the im not sure. i do know the these symptons of been spaced out dizzy is a sympton of the Menopause. It could also be a sympton of low blood pressure,I suggest you go and speak to a gynaecologist​ as they know far more about the Menopause than the general GP.

    I do hope you find the solution to your problems
