I am 45 years old and experiencing menopause. I am looking for any help and support I can get. My periods were regular until January of this year. Now I have one every 40-50 days and they are light. April 28th my doctor took me off of work until July 28th because I am just a mess! She put me on Primpro and anxiety meds (which have actually helped me get off the couch) I can't drive very far because I can't focus and feel confused. I have had to pull over and just sit until my mind clears and the sweating stops. My hands and bottoms of my feet sweat, I have numbness in my arms legs and neck. I get what feels like an overload of adrenalin and scares the crud out of me. I have been to the ER several times in the beginning because I really thought I was having a stroke. I have had every test possible and they all come back normal with the exception of my hormones. I woke up this morning sick to my stomach and clammy all over. I actually forced myself to go out with my husband yesterday to lunch and to the grocery store. (was not fun but I did it) Even though I know it menopause I still keep thinking maybe the doctors are missing something, I know they aren't but I just can't believe that menopause has made me this sick. I was an active, happy person and now I am stuck in this mess! HELP?
