Have read loads on here and can relate to many of symptoms. Mine started 8 months ago when I had double vision following stress. My parents had died within weeks of one another then my relationship ended after 7 years. The cause of my double vision was unknown possibly thyroid ( mine underactive) possible 3rd nerve palsy. It lasted around 9 days. Since then I developed night sweats waking me up 3x per night. Then they began in the day. Before my hot flush I would get impending doom as though something terrible was going to happen. These hot flashes come and go don’t get them every day. Then I developed health anxiety imagining I have something terrible. My energy has gone along with my social life. I used to be a real party animal now I don’t go out. I had to go part time from work as I could not cope with 5 days. I have had headaches, nausea, eyes ache had eczema on hands suddenly tinnitus, jaw ache, fingers ache, gastritis which made me loose 2 stone. Which I couldn’t afford as I am tiny anyway. The anxiety is dreadful I wake up and it’s there. I have tried meditation mindfulness yoga having CBT but it’s still there. My last period was 16 months ago and I’m 55. Can’t take HRT due to family history. I’m so emotional all the time just want to cry. I’ve never had anxiety like this until now. I don’t drink tea coffee or alcohol and I walk as often as I can and I went gluten free 8 months ago as I read it would help with thyroid antibodies. I’m not anaemic and other bloods are fine. Any one relate to this ??
