I saw a new GP today because I felt like my previous one who was much younger could not identify with my symptoms. So the new doctor who is much older and is a female saw me today. She said that she didn't think that the symptoms were peri menopause related. The only one that she did mention that was hormonal was of course the heat flashes. She indicated that my anxiety and panic attacks are not medical but rather circumstancial as if by some external stimuli. I told her that some of my symptoms I felt could have been side effects to my blood pressure medication (Amlodipine). She in essence discounted that claim but said that my digestive upsets were probably a result of the medication. But the other symptoms aside from the hot flushes were not hormonal in her opinion. She did do an EKG which was normal. But it is so frustrating and exausting trying to get these doctors to see that these symptoms are hormonal. If you're still seeing your periods normally and your bloods are in the normal range, they don't think you're in peri. It's a never ending story.
