Well first of I want to say that we never know what we do that can change someone life. This board has changed mine and I feel so blessed to of found it. A few months ago I was in terrible shape... Going dr to dr with a ton of tests trying to figure out what was happening to me. It was a tough year and a half. I moved several states away to a new area, with what turned out to be the house from the money pit. This was me trying to get a home on my own for me and my kids after a tough divorceaftet 20 years. I'm47 btw. So after going through dizziness, nausea, pain in the joints, muscle pain., not thinking right... And what I now know it's health anxiety... And maybe just plain anxiety, feelings of dread...I can't see or hear anything upsetting ... tingling in arms and legs, bone cold chills,, and for a short period of time tremors that only I could feel but none could see. Lets not forget about fatigue,, dry skin and my face is definitely aging!
I've had every test possible at every dr and finally found this message board. After reading what you all have shared I found some peace and strength. Thank you so much. Right now I am learning to be good to myself... I'm used to being the over achiever who takes care of everyone around her. I guess my body is telling me its tired of being in the back seat!
I went to an endocrinologist and told her about what I suspected... That my symptoms are hormone related. She said based on my age that I'm surely in peri. She did blood work and everything came out "normal for my age". I remember her saying my estrogen was 195 . I get regular periods.
I did pretty good the last two weeks and then two days ago my symptoms came back bad... And I realize I am in day 21 of my cycle. Is there a connection? I'm going to get myself a saliva test today and see if I can gather more info. I go to a menopause integrative specialist Feb 9 .
Right now my biggest anxiety is the heart palpitations. I take chamomile tea to relax when I'm anxious. Do you think it would help that?
Thanks so much I know this was a long post! I'm very open to getting to know anyone going through this and supporting each other so feel free to message me.
