Still feeling sick

Posted , 8 users are following.

Hello again . Just when I thought everything was going so well these symptoms come back again . I have been on anti depressants since the end of January when I felt like I was having a breakdown . I had been unwell with numerous problems for a few months . Anaemia due to heavy periods , unsettled stomach , general aches and pains , migraines and headaches . I even went to A&E with chest pains , but after a thorough check up from a consultant was told that it was all down to anxiety . I'd had a lot to deal with in the previous few months following my mums death . Each time I have visited the doctor they have put it down to a mixture of grief , anxiety and my age as I'm 48 . The thing is this full feeling in my stomach has come back along with nausea . I feel like if I push my stomach it makes me feel more nauseous . When I get this I keep coming over really hot , but is it the nausea causing the heat surge or the heat causing the nausea ? I don't have any pain . I did just have a period that was heavy , stopped but I've still had an ache low down then this morning two days after I finished I had a bit of blood in my discharge . Are all these things related ? Is it peri ? I just want to know what this stomach issue is . Has anyone else had this . I hate it and I really don't want to continue feeling like this . I really think I should go to the doctor but my husband and daughter say that it's nothing to worry about , but they're not the ones feeling like this . I hate feeling sick like this . Jane x

    Hi Jane,

    yes the nausea, I get........I have even wrote in here for advice, the last few weeks have been terrible, the nausea espicially.

    I do suffer with acid reflux, but for me the nausea was terrible and my medication ( Lanssoprazole ) wasn't really helping, I ended up going to Boots and asking a Pharmacupital for advice and was adviced on Pepto Bismol which ..............worked!!!!!!!!! Certainly helped with the nausea. Helped me anyway. And now take this when I get nausea,

    i did as well go and see my GP prior, he would NOTbgive me anything as my symptoms I gave to him thinks I may be annemic????? 

    So I'm booked in for blood works for June as I'm experiencing tiered'ness even though I get 8-9 hours sleep, nausea,and fatigue and crashing fatigue !!. Hope this helps a little????.

      Thank you . I just really feel like I'm losing it ! I can put up with the other things just about but not the nausea . I think now it must be peri as I have so many other symptoms at numerous times surges of heat then cold , migraines and headaches ,sometimes my joints really ache especially my wrists , back ache sometimes I have trouble bending down when walking around for a while , blocked ear feeling makes me off balance then fine the next day , lots of aches down below with discharge , can't wait to get my bra off some days as it hurts round rib cage . The list goes on . Also I keep forgetting words this really worries me as I have always been on the ball . Am I some sort of hypochondriac ? My labido has definitely taken a nosedive and I just hate the way I look as I'm too skinny now , but every time I put some weight back on the nausea comes back and I lose it again . Luckily my husband still fancies me , but he must be getting fed up of me . I know that my 20 year old daughter is . It's stopping me from doing so much . I would rather just stay at home where I am say , although still feel ill . Is this all normal ? Please help . I'm getting through so many tubes of polos to try and stop the nausea but then maybe that just fills my stomach with air . Any thoughts please . Jane X

      You definitely sound like peri. I've had all those symptoms at one time or another, they come and go and I started tracking them and they always seem to rear its ugly head around my ovulation and a few days before I'm due to have a period . I am also anemic due to heavy periods about three years prior that used to come every three weeks. My periods now come anywhere between 23 to 26 days lasting only a 4 days and minimal bleeding. My GP won't give me anything because I still have periods even though they have changed. I never had the nausea but I had bouts of just no appetite. I have lost 30+ pounds in 8 months. I do eat when my appetite comes back and gain a few pounds back then I go back to losing my appetite again. Now I'm dealing with extremely sore breast, bad cramps, bad lower back ache, achy and sore knees and a stuffy nose. My cycle is due now but i've only spotted for two days along with hot and cold spells, racing heart and anxiety. I have the chills and wrapped up in a blanket right now as I type this even though it's 72 degrees. My vitamin D was low. Since taking supplements for both low iron and vitamin D there has been some improvements but I only get a few days of feeling what I consider my normal throughout the month. You are definitely not losing it and certainly not alone. Hormones sends our bodies into a tizzy. Have you tried Ginger for your nausea? Ginger capsules or ginger tea can help settle some of the stomach churning. It's worth a try. Hope it helps.

      Thank you . Today the itching is driving me mad as well . My skin is red raw where I have been scratching . Does anyone know when you have the thick , clear discharge mean that you are ovulating ? I have only just finished my period though . Regards Jane X

      I will go weeks of feeling good and then bam ! This really unsettled , churning , sick feeling stomach comes back sending my anxiety into overdrive . Does anyone else get this ? My periods have been getting closer together last month 3 weeks apart and this month 3 and a half . I have tablets to reduce the amount of blood I lose , but even with these I still flooded on Thursday with a large clot ( sorry tmi ) then it stopped , but had a bit of spotting of bright red blood Sunday . The thing is my stomach still feels unsettled and I have clear discharge now , but I've still got that heavy and achy feeling that you get when a period is due . My backs aching as well . Sometimes my left knee really aches and my wrists . I have problems with my ears now and again causing me to feel off balance . I thought maybe it was an infection or they need syringing , but then they suddenly clear . Also my nose will keep running like I have a cold and I keep sniffing , a personal hate of mine . On reading the symptoms of peri and what some of the lovely ladies suffer from on here , I am now wondering if these are to go with peri . I spend my whole day worrying because I feel sick and have no appetite probably making it worse . I wake up thinking about it . Is this all that my life is going to consist of from now on ? I can't even speak to my mum about it as she died last year . It's coming up to the anniversary on 30th June ,so that's at the back of my mind as well . Thoughts please love Jane X

      I think the more I stress about it the worse it probably gets . I keep trying to tell myself this , but it's a vicious circle really . It's good to know that ladies are having the same symptoms as well . Mind due we would rather not have any of this to deal with obviously . Oh to be a man ! Until I went on this website I never realised that peri could cause so many problems . Blooming hormones I suppose I should have known that I wouldn't have an easy ride , as I had a terrible time when I was a teenager before I went on the pill . Chin up everyone X
