Can anyone identify with this?...
In recent weeks I've been waking every morning (and sometimes in the night too) with a trembly feeling inside my stomach and tingling, fullness and slight trembling in both of my arms. I have adrenalin surges too where I wake up suddenly with a start. I also have neck, shoulder and upper back aching. I've read that these 'internal shakes' can be part of peri but I'm having a panic today thinking it's something worse.
When I get up in the morning my body feels like jelly, I get tingly feelings and cold flushes and I've been having anxiety, low mood and panic attacks too. Sometimes I feel spacey and just not part of the world, so on edge.
Has anyone else had any of these symptoms? I'm feeling alone wth it today.
I know I'm in perimenopause because I have other symptoms but these symptoms are so new and strange and the anxiety and low mood have been overwhelming and made me feel like a different person.
Does anyone else feel like they have kind of lost themselves?
Sorry if that sounds weird. I'm just having a challenging day with all this. I get so anxious about more serious causes and that makes it all worse.
I'm taking vits and St John's Wort and the occasional valium when I get really panicky. It's helped quite a bit but I still don't feel 'normal'. I just want to feel like ME again.
