Hi all- so I’ve been following this board for about a year now and I’m so thankful I found. It’s been a great resource and a calming factor for me in the mist of all this craziness. But honestly it’s just awful..the anxiety, emotions, physical symptoms...do any of you ladies just feel it’s like one big rotation of aches and pains? For example, for maybe a week my back and shoulder will have sharp twinges, then my stomach has pain, then my neck and head, then my joints, then monthly cramps...it just seems never ending!! None of it is particularly debilitating, however the anxiety gets so bad sometimes that I can barely function. It worries me to the point where I’ve made a couple of doctors appointments, but then honestly cancel them the day before because I feel “okay”...That would just be a waste of time to go there and say, “oh yes my shoulder aches today, oh my stomach hurts, oh my neck really hurts, having some bathroom issues, why am I so sad?”...I’m 46, still get my monthly, but definitely in perimenopause..am I “okay” or should i try to get some answers..Last year when all this craziness started, I did go to my primary doctor and he just put me on Lexapro and it was absolutely horrible. I felt so ill I couldn’t get off the couch for the three weeks that I was on it, so I discontinue that and tried working and staying hydrated and trying to get out a little bit more often. It helps a bit but sometimes my brain takes over and i think I’m dying. Any advice, encouragement or venting about your woes is welcome. Take care all! 😊
