Hard Time.......

Posted , 13 users are following.

I had been doing so much better until Saturday. Started with feeling so tired and then twice that day feeling like I was going to pass out with my face on fire, no sweating, and a super sick tummy. Started feeling better Saturday night and only had one brief period Sunday feeling like I would pass out again but not as bad. Monday I just worried that it would happen again. Today, tuesday, was ok until this afternoon when I just feel jittery, sad, tired and scared. Anxious. I hate this feeling. Had another episode of dizziness/pass out, face on fire crying and scared and weepy. I am now afraid that any second that feeling will.happen again. I am 45 and been going through peri for about 4 or 5 years. I have had my thyroid, heart and digestive tract thoroughly chexked out and they are fine. I have been working so hard to get my anxiety under control and been feeling so much better. So hard to go back wards. Just makes me so sad.is this hormones? Is this anxiety? Both? It's still hard not to let my mind run away with thoughts of all the things that could be wrong with me. Anybody feel this way? Hardest couple days I have had in a long long time. I don't know if i am strong enough to do this again.

      Yes, I have this. Usually around or during my period. You describe what I feel very well. I have wondered if it is just anxiety too.. Fueled by hormonal changes and just some leftover anxiety and depression from a super bad relationship

      Have been debating getting some kind of medication but I have a muscle issue going on too so holding off til that gets sorted out

    Sorry your having a bad couple of days. I hate how you feel good for days then wham it hits you like a ton of bricks. I too wonder if it is hormones or anxiety it could be either it could be both. They both suck!! I have to keep reminding myself that I'm ok I've had my heart checked out bydoctors several times. It's the hardest thing to tell your mind to stop worrying you're not alone Hang in there "hugs" !!!!

    Hello DearDoe,

    I am afraid it is the hormones, and it is crazy making to say the least!!  I would suggest going to an Endocrenologist.  They are the only ones that can really sort out all of your hormones, and get you set on the right meds to get your hormones straightened out for you.  They run tests, your GP, and a lot of GYN's won't run.  You won't be sorry!  They will check for everything, and every sort of levels.  You will feel so much better once they figure it all out, and get you on meds/HRT!!!  Now days there is no reason to suffer anymore.  There are different type of HRT's, some are made to match you biologicly now, but you can have this conversation with the Endo.  You can also start reading up on them, along with the others.  Don't be afraid of HRT, as the studies made several years ago, the ones that scared the heck out of everyone, were based in incorrect information, and now they have found they are NOT as bad as once thought, as a matter of fact, they have found the pro's are much higher now!!!  I wish you luck.  Hang in there!  God Bless!!
