Stumbled across this forum and I'm so relieved I'm not losing my marbles!
- Can't get to sleep and I wake up in the night and long before my alarm in the morning, brain starts whirring and I can't get back to sleep. Sleep is so light, the cat farts and I'm awake again!
- Cranky, depressed, permanently irritated, uselessness, anxiety
- Dry skin, feels like ants crawling over me, hot flushes, my hair will not do as it's told and I look like a scarecrow. Can't be bothered to do my roots either
- Intolerance to alcohol (but on the plus side, I'm a cheap date) and as soon as I have one drink, I get the chest/neck/face blush
- Brain farts, I can't even leave the room without a map
- Zero libido (I'd rather defrost the freezer)
- Heart palpitations, heartburn, tinnitus
- Weight gain (I've turned into a proper fatty)
- I ache all the time, I creak when I move, if I can be arsed
- I fart ALL THE TIME and the smell of my urine could be used in chemical warfare
The gynae has prescribed Brisdelle or Prempo but I really don't have a clue what is going to work for me. I tried melatonin for the sleep issue, which exacerbated my vertigo and I was having 3 day long dizzy spells. I have no desire to take enough pills that I'll rattle like a bag of marbles.
