Hi Ladies, my post 'Am done' a Thankyou to those who responded/replied & gave support n advice, is nice to know there's lots of sharing & caring as we're all in the same boat. I've been keeping as positive as pos & trying to shift my train of thought when things go pear shaped or when I get those horrible strange body sensations...very scary! & always has me thinking...well, more like yelling WT...!? LoL do they ever go away? thought hitting the 12mth mark everything will settle Ha Ha! 😫 looks like I still might have a way to go........but, I'm hanging in there big sigh! 

Thanks again n take care xo

    Hi Bobbins059

    just read your stories and we sound so alike. I will be 55 next month and going through horrible panic and anxiety as we speak. This has been going on since 2004 ish. Had the microwave endometrial ablation done in 2009 and been period free since then but hot flushes and anxiety kicked in after that. Not on any medication for any of it but finding it tough at the moment.

    Nausea stops me from eating properly too. Quite sure it is hormone related but doctor doesn't think so. Having hormone levels check done soon to see

    what is going on. Just thought you sounded very positive. I need to try that too :-). All the best. X

    Yes, I have had the nausea also. For anxiety, I did finally get a prescription for Sertraline. It does help. Before I went on it, I thought I was going crazy with racing thoughts..couldn't focus...You wonder why sometimes, we can be irritable..When I got my period I would feel this way but it was like a light switch as soon as the period started and my mood would change for the better by 100% Now, no periods, that moody feeling just lingers. I find a glass of red wine at night helps also..LOL! cheesygrin

    One more note, I also have a very low pain tolerance. I feel every ache and pain 2-fold. Never had achy joints..now I have knee...shoulder...back..etc..crazy!!! I read some where that the diminished estrogen causes increased joint pain due to inflammation. WTH!!!
