Hello from Berlin!
I am in the midst of menopause (I am 51) and have these terrible, terrible "adrenaline surges" or "pressure waves" that start suddenly from my upper body and shoot like a wave to my head. Then I feel a sudden, short lasting pressure on one of my ears, then one of my ears rings for a few short seconds. I feel strange for a second, not really dizzy but "turned off", as if someone had dimmed the current inside of me for a moment. Then everything is back to normal after a few seconds, my heart races, I feel shivery and cold and have feeling of panic. Sometimes these waves are very mild, sometimes they are extremely strong and during these my whole upper body makes a quick jolt or jerk to the front. Its as if current travels very quickly through my body: sometimes I even feel my toes and fingertips tingle at the end of such a rush or wave.
Sometimes I don't have them for weeks, then again I get many, many in a row during one day. Today I had seven of these! I have been to many doctors these last years but no one really knows what it is: the say its either menopause related or due to my taking a Benzodiazepine every now and then a few years ago (NEVER on a daily basis!), or it might be due to my constant underlying anxiety.
Does anybody know this, has experienced this??? I would be so, so grateful for an answer.
