    Hi monique 

    this is how i feel anxiety all over the place blood pressure up at times when i am at a doctors office and heart rate. At times i feel scared not wanting to leave my appartment so i understand how you feel. Then there are times i feel like nobody cares about me. I don't have many friends to talk to. No girl friends to do things with i feel lonely i live with my boyfriend my parakeets and cockatiels and dog 

    My mom don't care about me never calls me the only time i hear from my brothers is when they want to do something which is not all the time my sister is the only one who talk to me and e-mails me 

    Don't know what to do any more about my stomach issues can not eat anything don't know what to do it just goes right through me my stomach can't hold on to anything i eat or drink just goes right through me

    I been dealing with similar issues since 2008 when my symptoms started. My blood pressure that was always normal even if I drank coffee is now where if I drink just a little bit of coffee it will raise my blood pressure significantly. I guess my body is sensitive to caffeine now. Who knows but I really understand what you're going through.

    I get body aches and bad acid reflux and I'm feeling like where is all this coming from.

    Last year I had complete blood work to check my hormones and it all came back abnormal.

    It's hard finding a Doctor that can really listen and understand. I'm still trying to find a good primary doctor because every time I go see a doctor I get a referral to a mental health doctor.

    The hot flashes , panic and anxiety attacks are the worst.

    I really hope you feel better soon. Hugs

    Hi monique, I develop panic attacks and stress very badly now whenever I go to the doctor or have any contact with healthcare, and I was NEVER like this before peri. I am also experiencing everything the panic, the anxiety, the breast pain and soreness and joint swelling. If it were not for the fact that all this happened at the same time I would be freaking out I even have bad indigestion and I found out thats another issue with decreasing hormones. You are not all alone, there are millions of ladies dealing with this, this is why I started here.

    Monique, I know what you mean, I am not exaggerating I have had maybe 5-6 really good days in 18 months, every single day there is a new problem, no joke, when I tell friends and especially my husband he looks at me like I am crazy, he says no one can have this much wrong with them all the time. I hate this so much.

    I am very happy that this site is here, I think the joint tightness around my shoulders, neck, and chest are the worse at least the hot flashes last a few seconds, this tightness goes on for hours and my dr says its just the lack of estrogen causing it and the only thing that will help is HRT which he refuses to prescribe and I dont want to take it.
