Posted , 11 users are following.

Ladies this had been a terrible morning but whats new. Last night i had sharp pain located below left breast upper rib. Also tingling feeling on bottom of feet. Heavy upper back, lower back pain, jelly legs, lower back pain and anxiety. I feel a mess and its only morning. I keep telling myself it is hormones to calm me down but it is s hard. I keep moving around the house to keep my mind off of the symptoms but it gets worst because my symptoms are so strong. I will go out back and sit and get some sun. The sharp pain is bothering me. Had you ladies ever had this ?

      Pamela this is crazy. I am one month in and cannot imagine that this is my new normal. Everyday something new. All i can do is cry. Today's new symptom is tingling and that pain under left breast rib cage. Its scaring the living daylights out of me. How can us women function like this. I honestly cannot do anything but sit. When i walk i feel disoriented. My hips feel off and the back pain doesn't help. I am baffled at the fact the dr's cannot help us. There has to be a way to get through all of this. I had a barbeque today to attend t that i cancelled. My life cannot be this way. I refuse. Thank God for you ladies or i would off went crazy. I hope you a blessed day. Hugs to you

    I get this everyday. I went to the ER ->Dr->Dr referred breast surgeon ->ER again. After all of that I only received breast handling and blood work. EKG, and CT scan first go at ER. So discourage and just living inside my hell. To top it all off, I am postmenopause and I also have right leg pain that has been bothering me for a month. No help to be had. I feel your suffering. I had to give up every liquid but alkaline water. No sweets, no starches. No chocolate. I have appt with nurse practitioner on Monday, and appt with my GYN on Friday for pain in my left ovary area.

    I am going to make me a t-shirt that says. I AM IN MENOPAUSE HELL. IF YOU CANNOT HELP ME OR CONTRIBUTE TO ME HAVING AN IMPROVED DAY THEN TURN AROUND AND WALK AWAY. 😃

    My husband finds excuses to be out in the garage or in another room, because I think my suffering is off putting. I told him if I could give him all this including the super dry vag. I would in a heart beat. Just for a year, I would like a year off. He wouldn't survive it and I would then be symptom free with money to travel from life insurance. lol. 😃

    Hi Sally,

    Approaching menopause is a mess, isn't it?

    Yes, I have the same in my left rib right now. It has been coming and going for years. I sometimes get "shock" or zappy feelings from it too. The first time that happened I had a panic attack... scared me so bad.

    Also have the heavy upper back... everything from my bra line to my neck feels like one massive brick I'm carrying around.

    I think the hormones bring a lot of anxiety, which brings lots of tension, which effects all the muscles.

    And the pain seems way worse than when i was younger... like i can feel every sensation magnified 10 times... like my brain used to be able to tune out pain that wasn't fatal, but now it can't.

    I hate that we all feel so crap.

    Hugs to you today. I am starting physical therapy for the back issues next week... will let you know if it brings any relief.

      wow, you NAILED that explanation of "like my brain used to be able to tune out pain that -WASNT FATAL-"

      Thats a perfect way to put it. ANYTHING I feel now i think its gonna be fatal.

      Perfect wording!

    I have every symptom you've described. I was just on vacation with my family and on the last day of our trip I was feeling tingling sensation in my entire left arm it radiated down through my ring finger and pinky. I also felt the tingling in my lower left leg. My anxiety got so bad, because I was thinking maybe I was having a heart attack. Trying to put on a smile and have a good time on vacation made me feel worse..I felt as if I was observing everyone enjoying themselves while I was in my bubble of doom. I kept reminding myself that I have felt these symptoms before and that it is just the hormones, but it was a battle the entire day. I also feel the pain or tightness under my left rib that comes and goes. I am trying to weather the storm by taking vitamins and trying to get as much rest as I can. You are not alone in this and hopefully we will all see our way out sooner than later!!

    Thank you ladies for posting this discussion. It is amazing to me how we can just describe our feelings and symptoms and almost invariably all of us can identify with having the same issue. It's comforting to know that you are not alone yet alarming to know that these are some of the absurdities that you have to bear while your body is transitioning off of these hormones.
