Like so many posts I've read on here I am getting horrendous symptoms in the 2 week run up to whenever my period decides to show, this is what's happening to me.
I am 47 always been regular every 28 days
I had one very late period 4 months ago then another on my next due day now it comes on day 32 up to day 38.
So in the 2 weeks leading up to my bleed I am anxious, weepy, angry, shaking, I have no worth, I'm filled with dread and doom. It builds up to the point of me feeling like I'm having a breakdown.
I could never get on with the contraceptive pill, it made my pmt too bad.
I am going to force myself to the nurse ( the nurse who did my smear advised me to see a nurse practitioner rather than a GP) this week. I would like to know if I can request a hormone level blood test on the NHS? I know my visit will result in me in tears and struggling to explain myself.
I'm scared to death of HRT but I can't go on like this. I prefer the natural route and don't really take anything other than pain relief but I'm already dreading work next month and feel I need to run away and live in a cave alone.
Any advice on what to ask for? or should I go private? will that cost the earth?
Sorry for the ramblings, wit's end and all that xxx
