    I am so sorry Lou. Yes, i think hormones and anxiety together can really make you feel like your dying. I can relate completely.

    Hi Lou

    I had a large breast cyst, which I stupidly ignored, caused great pain. Once it was drained the relief was instant. Have you had your breasts checked?

    Have you tried the acupressure bands for sickness? They helped my daughter with morning sickness. You can even apply the pressure to yourself. Two fingers width down from wrist crease. Google acupressure points for sickness. 

    Hope you find something to help you soon xx

    So sorry to hear that from you. What if you go to GP and demand that I want to speak to my Genecologest - spelling may be wrong, you need a specialist. Grrrr so angry.

    Good luck!

    Oh yes, surgical menopause is horrendous! At least it has been for me. Did your doctor never prescribe hormones? If not, why not?? Although some women in natural menopause also suffer a great deal, their bodies typically settle in over time once the ovaries completely transition to their post-menopausal levels of hormones. You don't nor never will have the benefit of those ovarian hormones. This deficiency has been shown to increase risk for many health problems, some of which are mitigated by taking HRT.

    I was in a terrible almost non-functional state, including suicidal depression, until I got enough estrogen in my system.

    I hope you can get some help and relief! This is no way to live!

    Hi lou86, did they leave your ovaries in? I think you should look for a menopause clinic in your area. They are specifically trained in dealing with menopause issues.

    Good luck.
