Good Evening Ladies,
I feel like I am going crazy. I have suffered headaches, hot-flashes, and night sweats. They have been kept under control for the past two years through a supplement that I have been taking. But, a new symptom has reared it's ugly head. Terrible dizzy spells and lightheadedness; feeling like I am going to faint when a hot flash occurs. One episode happened while I was driving (I seriously thought I was having a stroke) and the other was today at work. It was so bad at work I had to have my hubby come and get me. I did not feel like I could drive.
I have been to the doctor and as they said they have ruled out the baddies, heart, stroke, etc. Now I am having blood work done on Tuesday.
None of my friends have experienced this in peri-menopause so I feel like I am crazy. Is this all in my head or have any of you suffered this too? I am at my wits end, I am afraid to drive, because of these episodes.
If you have been through this, how did you cope if you had to work?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
