I went it the walk in clinic the other day walked out shocked and dazed confused, had to see the walk in clinic Dr not my own dr of 32 years ,

telling him how I was feeling and get some low dose antivan to carry me over until I see my family Dr ,

he goes sure but why ...long story short he said nope no way does he believe that there is none nothing to do with prei don't buy in ot it, can't be  said it would be anxiety from some where down the line some one in your fmaily gean pool had anxiety but it would be like a blanket over it for them but when it came down the line the blanket got thinner and thinner causing the effects .

that I should forget that go see a specialist in the field fix it for once and for all , to get checked out ,why live with this when IT cna be fixed and done with for good, .. I said many things but was like wahttttt I can  feel it when I close to my peroid and after feel the drops and rise in hormones henwas  like yes it tigers it more then its not the root of the problem , prei as nothing to do with anxiety wow  then I was thinking after I left ,wow so many millions of people go to shrinks and thye are still borthered by anxiety for years why Didnt thye fix it, so so many some effects by it now in prei I left there shocked but let down felt omg I am crazy after all had it shake that two sec feeling and laugh at it but wow ,what's your feelings on that?

    First of all, it is very difficult trying to get a male doctor to relate to anything we women experience. That's why all my doctors are females. Secondly, he can say what he wants but I did not have anxiety and stress until I hit 40 and started going through Peri. So what is he saying, our anxiety is being manifested because it's really caused by something deeper? What...are we all whacked in the head? I take offense to his statements.

    Hi ladies. I now take Complex B75 Vitamins and are great for woman moods.  It says great for PMS sufferers even.  Anxiety, depression.etc...  The Internet has nothing bad to say about them and made me feel better.  I feel better longer.  A lady on this forum suggested them.  xxoo

    The doctor sounds like an absolute fool. Okay, he's a man and he'll never experience what we're all going through but that's no excuse for a (well-paid) professional who should do some research about the matter. I can tell when the anxiety hits me (usually late at night in bed when I suddenly feel terrified for no reason) I talk to myself at such times and say "it's peri, it's not real, it'll pass, breath deep and relax" If I believed this twerp of a doctor I'd be thinking I was having a visitation from mad ancestral spirits or something. You have to avoid this doctor and find a different (preferably female) one. No, of course you're not crazy, Barb. He's just an incompetent hack. Avoid - you've got enough to deal with without this twit in your life.

    That Doc sounds like a Qwack!!  How on earth did he qualify - online?? 

    I would mention my concerns to my regular GP - that bloke sounds very ill-qualified to deal with female patients with his odd take on 'us'

    Take it you're not in the UK?  I'd shop around if I was paying for my healthcare.  Alas, like everything, you'll have good and bad in every profession.  Just so happens that when we need a good, well-read GP, they don't seem to exist!

    Good Luck - I'd make a new appointment with your old, famliar Doc.

    That is a completely unacceptable response. So disappointing to hear of GPs saying such narrow minded and damaging things!

    Many women experience anxiety in peri and I experienced something I can only describe as a mild psychosis!! I'm absolutely fine now but at the time, I thought I was losing my mind! I would urge you to seek a second opinion and agree with a previous poster who suggested a female GP. Best of luck and it does get better :-)

      Hi Barb 2nd opinions are good these days.  My GP is a female and didn't help very much.  That's when I found this forum to search for answers.   Female doctors should relate and know what we are going through cause men are built so different.  It's hard to know what's right and what's wrong.  We just want this to be done and over.  Take care xo
