Pretty sure I've been in peri for few years, hormone tests don't reflect this as I have a mirena coil which they believe blurs the results. Last night I had what I believe to be a anxiety attack as had similar last year.....went to bed after visiting the loo at 2am, had a sharp pain in left shoulder, arm went tingly, pulse was racing, shivering with my teeth chattering madly......When I had this last year I honestly thought I was having a heart attack or stroke, my husband then called an ambulance and after tests they advised severe anxiety attack. Last nights was similar but I made myself realise I wasn't diving....I woke my husband who basically sat with me for over an hour making me breathe through it. I've had stomach pains last 3 days which makes me think it's related to my peri.....I've now got the dead arm aching, strange rushing feeling in my head mainly left side and I feel just plain strange. I'm actually sobbing writing this as it scares me so much when it happens...I feel like I want to just curl up and sleep but the fear of it happening again stops me as it always seems to happen during the night or when I'm laying sleeping....the jolt upright feeling is awful....am I losing the plot or does anyone know what I'm going on about ?!!
