Posted , 9 users are following.

Hi ladies it's me again..I posted last week that I felt as though I'm loosing my mind. You ladies are the only confirmation that I have that I'm not going crazy, and my symptoms are real. I've been tyalking to quite a few of women that I know and when I mention to them my symptomps they all said"oh we didn't have any problems" not too reassuring. The other night my heart njust thumped all night could not sleep.. so the next day continued thumping so i was totally exhasted..  then i broke out into a crying spell.....some days I'm ok.. some I'm not sure of myself... who's body is this?????? the palpitations and nervousness, I just don't knoe... please keep me in your prayers.. I know that there aare praying women on this post, I'm one of them...that's my best hope is in christ.. these doctors.....???????

    Hi cathy, when I was experiencing anxiety, panic attacks, which also triggers nervousness, I started taking 250 mg magnesium supplements with St. Johns Wort herbal supplement. I would take them in the morning and evening. I would start to feel better about a hour after. Also try taking b vitamins. When I was put on hormone therapy my heart palpatations stopped.

    The symptoms do eventually get better. Now I only take magnesium and b vitamins twice a week now.

    Hi Cathy,

    I am a praying woman, and I will keep you in my prayers.  I too have felt crazy the last three months...mostly around my menses.  Two weeks of each month i am a moody, crazy, forgetful, confused and hot woman.  And I am a raving lunatic one minute and a crying blubbering mess the next.  lol!  I am so not sure of myself.  I have told my hubby that all major purchases and decisions are HIS decisions not mine.  I am not capeable of big decisions right now and I know it.  I accept it.  God still has a plan and purpose for our lives, and will find ways to use us even during these terrible times.  Don't worry.   Doctors are not the end all.  

    Big Hugs Sister!

      Hello Indifferent, I know how you feel with not being able to make major purchases during this roller coaster ride. Unfortunately I didnt get it like you did......when I started feeling perimenopause to the extreme we were right in the middle of purchasing a home. Ugh! It was horrible! So you are smart to just let your husband do the major things. I still dont pay things for now. I feel bad that it falls all on my husband but hes good about it....luckily smile Im so thankful for all of the ladies on here. Everyone on here has gotten me through some rough days. I believe that God has a plan as well. We will get through this! I hope that you are doing well and I am praying for all of us daily. Take care!

      Do you know, I hadn't even thought of that aspect of things! I've been trying to find and buy a house for months and months and I just can't seem to do it.  All my friends think I'm pathetic and I haven't understood till now why I'm finding it so hard. Thank you both for that insight! biggrin

      Well Jane you are not pathetic. It was very hard on me to do this whole process while going through perimenopause. You might want to put it off if you can or have your husband carry most of the responsibility of it. I feel like I was at my worst then. Take care of yourself and as little as stress as possible helps. Have a good day!

    Cathy,

    There is strength in numbers and prayer does work! ; -)

    It is frustrating not being able to get a definite answer from a Dr.. But in this forum you will see there is no specific AGE that can define the start of menopause.. We ladies share SO MANY of the same symptoms (hopefully after reading through the shared experiences it can help put your mind at ease) -

    Hearing the TRIUMPH after someone's struggling battle is encouraging and lets me know WE are going to get through this!

    Lots of prayer & support is sent your way ?

    Oh, and I forgot...try laying off the sugar, that ended the anxiety part of my issues.  Thank God for showing me that!  Not that the rest of the mess is easy, but the anxiety was particularly trying.  I did an meat and vegies clean out for six months and can eat sugar now in mederation with no anxiety.

    Hi Cathy! I've I know what you're going through! I had

    the palpitations they were so bad I was in and out of

    the hospital for about two years. The cardiologist put

    me on medication which helped after he increased it

    to 40 mg. It's been 4 years now and I'm off all medication

    I consider my self a very blessed women. I give it all to

    GOD! It does get better I know it may not seem like it

    right now but it will! I was on stomach medicine heart medicine both at the same time. So it will get better.

      It really is incredible the ailments that come with that one little ingredient!  Wait till you see the difference in a week or a month!  And it is the best weight loss as well.

    I have had an awful experience with the perimenopause. Period stopped for 10 months then came back for 19 days. Then constant spotting for weeks. I was constantly dizzy. My blood pressure went nuts. I have developed a severe health anxiety problem even routine blood tests send me demented waiting for them. gynecologist put me on progestrone only pill which has regulated my periods but gives me constipation.Without my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. I am sure I would have gone insane by now. I have been told the anxiety at least in my case is a hormone imbalance and it will pass. This gets confirmed when I pray to put Lord. I also had prayer from one of the last reformation guys. He phoned me and we prayed about my dizziness in a few hours it has completely gone. This was 2 months ago . Hang in there Cathy.Jesus will hold our hand through this perimenopause.
