I have been going through severe symptoms of perimenopause for the past three years, and in the last few weeks, in particular, the physical and psychological symptoms have become absolutely debilitating. Here are the symptoms that I am dealing with...
Physical: bloating, alternating lack of appetite with insatiable hunger, numbness, disorientation, GI issues, tingling all over my body with numbness, cold extremities, exhaustion...
Psychological: rage, brain fog, irritability, severe emotional distress, depression, anxiety, obsessiveness, loss of joy, hopelessness...
I just never knew anything could be this severe or take this long to get through. I have tried every med, including HRT, and nothing has even touched this.
I am a healthy person who eats well and exercises daily. I don't have any medical conditions. And even though perimenopause isn't technically a disease, it certainly feels like one.
I have an amazing support network (spouse, mother, close friends), but it is still so hard to get through the day. I feel absolutely shattered by the end of it.
I know that perimenopause can't last forever, but I feel like I am losing my life to this, as I have struggled for so long.
I have every symptom of high estrogen, so I am certain that this is the issue. I just want my hormones to calm down, so I can enjoy the beautiful life that I know I have.
Please share your stories with me:)
