SNORING like a freight train now

Posted , 5 users are following.

Hi there,  Lately I have been snoring very similar to a freight train my husband says.   rolleyes  I seem to have phlem in my throat and need to cough during the days.   I assume this is from digestive changes?  My husband and our dog were found in the spare room sleeping last night.   cry cool eek

      Hi Marlene

      i felt my energy waning on Tuesday and yesterday was worse..

      i get to about 12 days then need a B12 injection.. I had one last night..

      and energy great today... 

      i use the Spanish Optovite B12 ampoules, one lasts a month roughly but i need two a month ... feel better for it..

      Think we all need these jabs ,my cousins husband on B12 injections regular,like you,he's got ulcerative colitis,lovely chap,but those injections certainly boost him.

        I was saying to Dottie,on the B 12  split them in to doses twice a day,see if they react as B6 for couple days,on my IBS,got 2bottles from Hollandand Barrett,only had 1000if okay will try and get Jarrows as you suggested. 100 tabs in bottle.

         Poor old Dottie,weather plays havoc,with my rhinitis,yes I get that tickle cough  not all the time just now and again. Husband gets same with his asthma,off and on,weird both say weather,so can't win with that,if not on chest ,I wouldn't worry about it.

         Freezing here again.    Your girls birthday today,Jay xx

      Hmmm Jay now my periods started to get lighter a few years back, then these allergies started, I started to have heart palpitations, thought it was the green tea I was drinking, my thighs got very itchy but have no night sweats or hot flashes so I hope this isn't the calm before the storm. My mom had me at age 45 and her periods never came back so she went through nothing gruelling except the fact that she had me! heehee 

      So who knows how things will work out ...but it's fun chatting on here with my new meno friends and they do say things happen for a reason so ladies don't worry...be happy!  Just like the song.  cool

      Hi Dottie..

      Green Tea ... What is that like.... Yak ..

      I cant drink normal Tea, smells gross, I make it for other half, holding my nose, my daughter a tea belly...

      i tried it, just don't like it... Cant drink these thick drinks they mush up in blender either.... My throat says NO ... 😃

      back to menopause... My Mum sailed through hers, two years it was done, she started at age 42 and finished at age 44 she said, no HRT .. She didnt take HRT as she lost two sisters with breast cancer who were on HRT.

      I remember my mother drinking sanatogan wine to boost her energy.. And also having iron back then... And thyroid meds.. ( underactive) shes 83 now 

      so I am high risk with HRT and I also I had endometriosis and cysts so no HRT for me too.... i am fine now in every way after scans but glad i didnt take it...   

      My hormones declined now and feel ok, I should now feel like this for ever, with seeing my non functioning no follicles ovaries, Gyno said menopause reached... So we will see... 😳 supps I manage on, I have to, when Imread HRT risks, don't think I would of had it anyway.. Dont want two menopauses, no way .... 

      well the suns shining... And its a beautiful day ... Have a nice one Dottie 

      Jay xx

      Hi Jay,  I think it was mixed in iced tea.  This was years back  I don't drink it today probably because it was gross.  rolleyes  So now that you are in full blown menopause (lucky.biggrin),  you still keep taking the same vitamins as much forever?  Now you can enjoy life as peri is all over. ahhhhhh. Have a nice warm day!  xxoo

      Hi Marlene

      yeah i know what you mean... But as i share my experience and been lucky the last 5 months have been calm ( odd niggle) only seems right to mention to the lovely ladies the blips from nowhere or they may think they should be feeling good always when meno reached ... And that doesnt happen 😄

      today .. Right now... All good, done chores, vacuumed pool ( didnt fall in) 

      Next i just need to tackle these hot flushes that i had for about 3-4 months and the vag dryness discomfort and bingo ...  ' Full house ' winner 😃

      have a great evening.. ' oh its Dragons Den later '

      Think the Gyne anxiety the pits,weird how it happens or the why,know hormones brain tells you but don't stop it,been told worse if you've got IBS at same time,As bowel and womb only 10 cms apart,is. That why meno woman get the anxiety bad there,find sitting uncomfortable,due to same area,spoken .need it passed by a Gyne dr who understands it,maybe then help.wished your Gyne chap on line to ask Jay,he was good knew his job.for a male dr.

         Think better to know,all the blips ( to mildly put it ) than not know,less to worry about Jay,if they get these things return again but wee bit different,throws you that's for sure.

         I'm sat watching Friends .we watch Dragons Den later,it's 5pm just gone here.

        Glad you've stayed busy,we've just had tea,got colder to,no sun out,xx

      Agree Dottie and Taz,all this carry on one waiting game ,if game is the right word for it,feel for the ones no comp or I pad ,to get to talking about their symptoms ,and don't understand what in hells name is going on with them.

       Least on a comp etc you do get advice,that's the blessing here,miles apart,but a connection ,no matter where we are in the world.xx

      Hi Marlene

      yea the anxiety is not nice, now that is one thing i dont think I have much of now..

      we blame the oestrogen decline 😃 = anxiety 

      mind you we have three different forms of oestrogen so even thats not just one thing...  (estradiol, estriol, and estrone)!

      dont know what to have for tea 😓

      Yes, provided neurology and the anaethetist get their fingers out. The former ordered a test back in May and the letter was lost, until he gets the results the anaethetist will not even look at the file and could refuse to go ahead. Test needed is just 10 days before op date and only taking place as I pushed for it

      Hi Taz

      oh hun, you don't need that to worry about too..

      They do that here in spain, bloods no more than 10 days before an op, just routine, to check all okay, etc... 

      Avoid people with colds.... ' run opposite direction' as they wont do any op with colds and coughs...

      They do bloods too,done mine already but according to a letter I got yesterday seem to have lost them.

      This is completely seperate and unrelated test that is not a pre-op one.Just put a paper on file and tick the box for neurology. Seperate departments but as asked for then not done now made it their buisness.

      Not know a from e comes to mind.

      If anyone believes I really do need prayer on this one that all goes to plan.

      Hi Taz

      cant your doctor reassure you, tell him your anxious as its all arse about face, and you need to relax pre op..

      ask him what on earth are you suppose to think ... surely it will be confirmed as all okay

      The GP doesn't seem to care and I've been after the Anaesthetist for the last week myself, he won't play ball or even speak to me.

      The Neurologist has gone on leave and won't be back until 4 days before the test, from what his secretary says seems will not care as too busy, the cancellation of an op is not being seen as an emergency.

      PALS, the patient liason service, is now involved and they can get no answers either

      All I can do is worry and stress feeling that no one cares or wants to answer.

      All I can now see is cancellation.

      Hope your right. Positivity is difficult as a tendancy towards OCD means I fret when things are out of my control and things are further complicated by PTSD from taking aid to Bosnia for eight years during the war and recently to Syria.

      Sad Taz ,you go and help another human in this life,I always think life is wrong how it works out,there are those out there who wouldn't cross the road to help another in need,and they sail through life untouched,never get that.

        Hope your troubles get sorted ASAP,sit on them hard ,don't get fobbed off .

      I try and live by a motto they had in Vietnam - I've spent my time in hell and I don't regret it.

      Yeah lifes a b then you die but as they say what goes around comes around and as a staunch Catholic with more compassion than sense I could not look myself in the mirror if I walked on by.

      No truer words ever said Taz,still ask that one question Why,An old vicar years ago told me never stop asking that question,and you will one day receive the answers,never forgotten him ,always bear that in mind today,to some degree when you get despondent.Look around the world,trouble ,fighting,all main cause is males at bottom of its troubles,with exception to few females,who are bad and as evil,Sad it all is,that's for sure .Wouldnt want to be any of them on judgement day.To late for those then xx

      marlene21102 The day we stop asking why is the day we feel we alone have all the answers, at that point the trouble starts as it is at that point we seek to impose them on others.

      Oh heck, hobbyhorse again. Wonder if philosophysing is one of the symptoms? smile

      Think as females we all look for answers,it's in our DNA.Life is about control over another,has been since human life began ,civilisations gone because of it wiped out.Not what it was meant to be,but that's where we are to this day,sad as it is ,rather spend money on wars than feed kids on this planet.

       Society is truly sick.brought home to me back years ago when I saw youngsters 3 to 5 yrs old running behind grain lorries wheel tracks  picking up grains that had fallen through the floors of these lorries.these were just babies.never forgotten it ever. That was Ethiopia famine.Nothings changed.
