Hi there. I've already posted about going mad and today I'm having a massive anxiety/panic attack.
So trying to put things into perspective. I'm 48 and for a few months have been having sweating episodes. Anxiety and panic attacks for a few months longer than that.
The sweating is random, but does occur more when it's warm outside and when I'm eating or drinking. I have the odd night sweat, but not horrendously.
I'm terrified it's some rare cancer and not peri as my periods still come. Though they are more frequent and shorter. I've even paid for a private urine test to check for the thing I fear, though now the thought of handing that over for testing has me sick with worry.
It's so hard to deduce what's a peri symptom and what's not. My gp has ordered bloods to check hormone levels but I've heard they are unreliable at this point. I wish I'd skipped a period, then at least I'd have a clue. Anyone out there with similar experiences before I completely lose the plot? Xxx
