Having a bad day and its only 6.45am.

Posted , 7 users are following.

I have woken up after a rubbish nights sleep feeling really shakey again. I had my bloods confirm that I have a hormone imbalance which points to peri even though I am 34 and not long had a baby (13 weeks) this happened to my nan and my mum was early too. 

I have a constant headache, internal shake, anxiety feeling sometimes for no reason, I am very tired all the time, not had a proper period yet, have hot and cold flushes and really had enough. GP has given me progesteone mini pill and said it could take a couple of months for everything to settle down. I am sat here in tears as I feel so ill and just want to feel better.

    Aww!! Firstly, sending a huge hug for you (((Hugs))).... It's hard enough having just had a baby & then this on top!!! You give it time, all you can do is listen to your doc, it will get better once your body/hormones settle down they are in turmoil just now which is why you feel the way you do sweetie. Take a deep breath tell yourself things will get better because they will. Keep talking to your health visitor too and let them know how you are feeling. We are here too ... You are not on your own lovely..... Be good to yourself & don't get stressed you will get through this xx💕

      Hi,  If you feel like you are getting nowhere with this, I would go back to your GP or change them if you feel that they are useless!  Sometimes its hard to express how you feel in the short time we have for a GP appointment!   Iv been in the tears at the GP and they have just given me Diazpam which i didnt really want to take as highly addictive and gave me really bad headaches! I have changed my GP a few times since then!  Do you have a wellwomen clinic anywhere near you? deals with peri/menopause!  There is talking therapy (outlook) my GP told me about them you self refer or the GP can do it for you.  Sounds like you need help but are not getting it from GP.  I  had my daughter at 38, with my husband away for months at a time, miles from my family so know what its like to struggle with a baby.  I can't imagine how it must be to be peri with it.  poor you.  Keep going, I take Agnus Castus a herb been used for centuries, im peri  and so far it seems to be working it is supposed to regulate hormones.  Also take magnesium it calms the system down.  I hope you get the help you need.

      Kind regards

      Niki x

    Hi KIk.

    Looks like you're having a combination of hormonal imbalance + post-partum depression, right?  cry Are eating well? I mean proper rich nutrient meals?

     Is that "progesterone mini pill" you’re taking bioidentical oral micronized progesterone? The brand name is Utrogestan. This form is better than artificial progesterone and it’s definitely got anxiolytic/relaxing effects.

    Something that would also be very beneficial for you and your baby (if you’re breast feeding) is taking (medium to long term as a supplement) Omega3, 3  X 1000mg capsules/day. With this and the progesterone you and your baby will feel happy and restful. biggrinXX.

    Hi Hun so sorry to see you are really struggling and feeling so awful especially having a new baby to look after. Has PND been excluded as a lot of your symptoms are the same as having that also a hormonal imbalance is a good sign of having it. I'm post menopausal and still suffer with symptoms I do take paroxetine and diazepam when needed but I only take that if I'm really bad I am 52 and haven't had a period for 3 years. I also drink cucumber water which has given me some relief with hot flushes and have just started a multivitamin daily. Keep in touch with the group it makes you realise your not the only one suffering and not going mad smile

      Hello, yes pnd has been ruled out but bloods show an imbalance which indicates peri, mum and nan were both done by 42 and I'm 34, only taken 3 days worth of progesterone and told it takes at least a month before symptoms will hopefully subside. Problem with me is I wallow so am going to get myself and bubs out and about to baby groups and also on a Wednesday do something fun with my nearly 4year old as he starts school in September. Maybe taking my mind off it all will help.

      I sit n overthink things n it makes everything seem 1000 times worse than they are & it takes forever then for it all to come clear in my head your not on your own as this site prices we are all going through the same thing some more than others but we can all support each other as n when we need too so keep posting when your feeling liw or need advice

      Enjoy your family time xxx
