Nervous Jitters and Trembling

Posted , 8 users are following.

Hi Ladies,

I just needed to vent. I should be used to these symptoms by now but when it happens I'm still a little anxious.

I have been having bouts all day on and off nervous stomach and jitters. I am literally trembling. I'm trying to lye back on my bed and relax but these jitters are annoying. I have been keeping down the panic attacks as best I can so that I don't stress myself out. These symtpoms are overwhelming.

I could cry right now but I won't allow myself to break down like that. I'm determined to get through this. I'm sorry for my woes ladies but I had to talk to someone so I typed it out here. I'm so grateful for this forum and you ladies.

    Hi Jamie, you responded to a post I put out there the other day about having anxiety and perimenopause. I know how you're feeling with the anxiety. I may not have it at your level but it sucks for sure. I know for me, what has helped is that I had to go on an antidepressant (because I have also had crying spells along with the anxiety). The antidepressant I'm on is also known to help with the anxiety. I was also prescribed the lorazepam for immediate relief. It calms me down within 15-20 minutes but it does work. I don't know how you feel about taking meds but sometimes you gotta try something to help yourself. I didn't want to go the pharmaceutical medication route, but here I am. I do also incorporate natural supplements to help me. I take Gaba 750mg a day to help calm my mind. I also take Sam-E which helps me have a better mood. I also take Niacin which helps with depression and anxiety. YouTube Niacin for anxiety and you'll get alot of good info. I'm also starting to see a counselor and psychologist to help because I've read that it's beneficial to do both meds/supplements along with therapy. I'm not saying what has helped me will help you, but they may. I too am thankful for this forum because it does help to talk it out and get it off your chest. smile

      Thank you Lara,

      I am going to try the lorezapam. I didn't want meds, but until it gets better, I may need them. Its a small dose so hopefully it won't have too many effects. I have been good lately with handling the anxiety but today for some reason I've just been nervous and jittery. Now it has subsided and I'm sweating. This is just a lot. I am also thinking of talking to a counselor. I'm still not good with being alone.

      I understand. I didn't want to go the meds route but if it's too unbearable, there is no shame in getting a little help. If our hormones are throwing our mental state and neurotransmitters of whack, we have to try to find ways to get that rebalance. I'm sure what works for one, doesn't always work for another. And I've read that getting the hormone blood tests don't always come back positive. It depends on our hormones at the exact time our blood is drawn. I hope the lorazepam works for you. If you do go see a doctor or specialist, I hope they are able to help you and listen to your concerns. I will go to see a OB/GYN later this week. I have notes of my concerns written down and also my symptoms to discuss with her because I know I won't remember all I want to say (thanks to my brain fogginess and memory issues because of the perimenopause).

      I need to see a OB/GYN. My GP doesn't understand so I always feel blown off when I tell him anything. If it's not in the blood work, then to him I'm fine.

      I know what you mean. My Primary care physician was the same way. She didn't really hear me our with my concerns that I am going thru peri. I don't believe her because she never ran any tests on me to truly find out. That's why I'm getting a 2nd opinion. I've had 5 straight days of feeling fine with hardly no anxiety or crying but I woke up this morning feeling anxiety and the need to cry. And I haven't done anything different. So I know it's hormones. I do hope you do see someone else other than your GP. And I do hope that they will listen to you and your concerns and address the issue. I know that you said you are holding back from crying, but let it out! It's a release and you may feel better afterwards. It helps me. It's natural to cry. Wish you the best :-) I often check in on this forum so feel free to write me if you need to vent.

    I went theiugh so many crazy symptoms and not one doctor told me why. Im post menapause now and looking back it all makes sense. I always had anxiety so i never made the connection. Hormone levels blance the body and now you entered a stage when they will remregulate but until they do you will experince all weird things. Anxiety will heighten, snger will heoghten, moody, sweats, hunger and insomnia, dizzy  are the top symptoms. Hang in there it really does get better. Peri was worse then menapause. Im post now still get weird stuff here and there but i tell myself its hormonal.  If you dont own ginger, buy some it is great! Releeves dizzy stuff.  Your sugar levels sound off maybe a wuick trip to the endocrinologist would be a really excellent idea for you.

      I'm going to see if I can get appointment with one. Thank you for your response. No docs have told me what's going on either. All tests come back negative which was good, but when I tell them how I feel they say I need to talk to a counselor, anxiety is common in women my age. So I know it's hormonal, I just try to deal with it. It just gets so frustrating. The nervousness and kitted have subsided and now I'm hot and sweating. I'm holding on to the hope of it getting better.

      Lisa, I seem to mirror and relate to your comments the most. Can I ask how long, how many years until you started to balance out or get back to yourself?

      Thanks!!

      Was very happy to come across this one I was kind of worried a little bit about my glucose because at one point the doctor told me I had type 2 diabetes then he called me and told me not to take the pills because my a1c level was 5.8 but I still check it every now and again not bad but I just check it but I'm happy to see that you said ginger was good for this

      Hi can you tell me when you know your post meno? I hvnt had a proper peri from last April. I had bn on a 3 monthly hrt with a bleed at the end in october but this didn't agree with me so I hvnt bn on any thing from then. I attended an acupuncturist which I do think helped and am taking vitamins . But i just feel the joy has went out of life! ! I'm going to be a granny soon and my son's getting married so all good things are happening but I hv no interest in anything! ! I'd be interested in your thoughts.
