Hi everyone - I am new to the group and wishing all of you well. I am 52 years' old and, according to blood tests, am post-menopausal, although it has only been three months since I last spotted. I woke up in the middle of the night on July 13 and have never been the same since. Chronic dizziness, heart palpitations, nausea, tingling, numbness, and panic attacks. Since that time, I have been to the ER (heart is fine), an ENT, a neurologist, two OB/GYNs, primary care physician, psychologist, psychiatrist, and acupuncturist. (I am seeing a cardiologist later this week.) I tried 20 mg Prozac for 12 days and had to stop because it made me so sick (no sleeping/eating for two days). Xanax and Clonozeapam made me more anxious and dizzy. I had to stop working but need to go back very soon as not working is not an option. I do not drink or smoke, and I exercise regularly. I also take vitamins, although I am hesitant to take Relizen or other such menopausal supplements because of potential side effects. Anyone else experiencing this and how are you coping? I want my life back; the anxiety is much worse now because of the uncertainty as to when this is going to end. Thank you so much for your help!
