Hello to all - I have been perimenopausal for several years, but did not experience debilitating symptoms until the last four months. My life has completely changed. Within these last few months, I have been to the ENT (normal), the neurologist (brain MRI normal), the caridiologist (heart good), my primary care, and two OB/GYNs, together with physical therapy and acupuncture. (I know many of you have a similar experience.) My primary symptoms are extreme dizziness and nausea, with brain zaps and head tingling. I took time away from work, but had to go back once my disability ran out. It seems the consensus is that my symptoms are a result of hormone induced anxiety. I am told I am not a candidate for HRT (the OB/GYN said she has not heard of these symptoms from her patients and she is a menopause specialist!), and the "only" medication is to go on an SSRI. I lasted 9 days on one before because I got so sick. Is there any hope? Do any of you know women who experienced severe, chronic symptoms and eventually made it through without any medications? Wishing you all well. Take care.
