I am new to this forum and so glad I found it! I am 52 and one year ago I had a hysterectomy and at that time started with the hot flashes, which seemed to dissipate after about six months, but then the nightmare for me started. I have this weird sensation in my brain and my heart. The only way I can describe it is I feel kind of flushed, but not warm, and kind of like my heart is going to stop and I am going to drop dead, which of course causes immense anxiety! Then along the right side of my calf I have this feeling like it is cold, not to the touch, but inside, and it aches, it has moved up to my knee and all around the knee and inner thighh. This has been two months now. I can barely drive because of it. My elbow is burning, I can’t sleep, I am depressed, have headaches, etc. I went to the doctor and she wanted to give me anti inflammatory and muscle relaxers for the knee, which I forgot to mention feels like it is going to give out on me. Now the top of my left foot feels the same way at times. They have run blood work and it is mostly normal, with a few borderline lows. My blood pressure is generally low but will shoot up high for no reason at all and my heart will start racing. I think I have peripheral neuropathy or multiple sclerosis or am just plain crazy. I feel so alone when I get these anxiety attacks and so scared. My sister is into homeopathy and gave me a mixture of essential oils that I rub on my skin for anxiety and believe it or not it does help. I just wonder how long this will go on for and if I will ever return to normal??? Does anyone know the answer to this question?
