I know this is a place where I can come to and mainly everyone will know what I am talking about! I just need to let it all out. I have been in peri for about 4 years. My symptoms started with an increase in my already anxious in panicky self. My periods became closer, about 21-24 days apart, and heavier (and I already had heavy periods). That lasted over two years. The last year and a half they have been slowly having longer times in between (with a few short for good measure, lol). In the last 4 months it has been 51 days, 24 days and the last one was 64 days, and I am on day 8 of bleeding (which it use to last 6 days, with some 8 days) and it doesn't seem to be letting up. My anxiety is absolutely though the roof. It's even been hard for me to go anywhere for a long time (I had to go to the dentist in August and it was horrible. Thankfully they were great). I feel stressed all the time. I can't sleep. I feel like my head is detached from my body. Vertigo, ringing in the ears, exhaustion to the point I don't want to do anything, gaining weight even though I watch what I eat, feeling like I am looking at the world through fog, emotional, irritable, crying, prickly feeling all over, numbness and prickles in the face, tmj, eye twitching, achy, sore joints, tight neck and shoulders, panic attacks, and the list goes on. I do have fibromyalgia and this definitely has made it worse. I go the doctor next Friday for a complete check up, pap smear, and blood work. I haven't been to a doctor in years and I am a wreck. I also have really bad health anxiety, so I think they are going to find something horrible. So yeah..lol! How's everything with you guys 😃
