    I know why. It is symply because you are not feeling well. These bloods tests don't always show everything. I never go by them. You know your body and your symptoms. I suggest you remind yourself that some of these symptoms are due to our bodies changing and please try not to think of the worse. Go to your gp/Dr and of course get yourself checked but don't think of the worse. I don't think medicine has done enough work to understand women's body. These meno anxiety and pain will be over one day -hopefully soon. Good luck -take care

    Hi Maria.  I am going through the same thing right now.  I'm sorry you are too.  I agree that most of mainstream medicine is behind the curve on menopause and its effects on our bodies.  I try to watch funny tv when I can.  But, it is sooo hard still not to get dragged back down with the worry.  I hope you feel better soon. ((Hugs))

    If you can, take time to do something to pamper yourself, or spend time with friends, family etc. I am going through health anxieties with ultrasounds and stuff waiting for results, and one evening I ended up going down the rabbit hole of YouTube and watching some favorite old comedies (ab fab!). It did me a world of good to simply laugh at silly stuff and to not think about anything for a few hours.

    Maria, you are not alone.  I do find that it helps to watch something funny or just do something that I enjoy but understand exactly what you mean.  Hugs to you and take good care of yourself.

    HI Maria,

    I've suffered from anxiety since the birth of my second child, but recently it's became sky high.  

    I on a daily basis conjure up some horrible disease (normally cancer) that is bound to kill me, I've had bleeding around when I ovulate for the last few months and even although I've had a pap test and a scan I'm convinced it something horrendous...I've also had my bloods taken to determine whether it was my thyroid, perimenopause, or what ever, but they all came back fine...I think to silence me my doctor is now sending me to a Gyno, which has of course only made me a 100 times more anxious!

    It's such a vicious cycle, but you are not alone, it's driving me crazy this constant nagging feeling that I'm seriously  ill. Try to keep busy, I find when I'm alone I am worse, as I over think and 'create' new symptoms, its a horrible stage but you will get through it.

      Hey Alice.  Just wondering how old are you?  I am 45.  I'm sorry you are going through this too!  I think being alone is one of my biggest problems.  And not being busy enough.  I just want to turn it off!  Get a shot, take a pill,  anything to make it go away!!

      Me too sweetie!  Today has been such a struggle through it.  It's thanksgiving and I feel like poo.  Sore throat (that has been hanging around off and on for a few weeks)  ears hurt sometimes, headache with it sometimes, some jaw pain and it's driving me crazy and I keep thinking it's something terrible.  But, I do remember last year at Christmas time I was super anxious and depressed and was sure I was dying.  It got a little better after increasing my antidepressant dosage, but I really feel like it is no match for these hormones!  Has anyone had the throat issues?

      Every where day another symptom emerges.... I’ve had an increased amount of wind recently... diet hasn’t changed, so I’ve convinced myself it’s some horrific thing... I literally drive myself insane!

      Thanks for responding Katie.  I felt feverish last night, so I took some acetaminophen and ibuprofen.  Woke a little sweaty, so I guess I broke it.  I HATE going to the doctor.  Ugh.  I seriously do not want to have to go next week!!
