Hello all. First time posting here. I'm 48, on HRT patches & Sertraline.
My anxiety is greatly improved with both these meds, feel relaxed & able to cope.
It's the hot flushes & sweating that is stopping me from doing most things. Any change of atmosphere at any temperature, so walking from one room to another, even walking down the Tesco fridge isle will cause me to sweat, so it can be seen running down my face, neck & chest. A 5 min walk, even a swim. My doors & windows are open while the rest of the family freezes!
The only way to avoid triggers is to do nothing, which is impossible.
I'm only in my 2nd month of HRT. The doc says it can take months to get under control & its too early to increase dosage.
This has been for 2 years now & although have seen some improvement with HRT my friends say they've never seen anyone suffer the flushes & sweats as much but I bet there's some of you out there that can relate.
Would love to hear from you ladies xx
