Thirsty

Posted , 9 users are following.

This is going to sound weird, but is anyone else really really thirsty? I can't seem to get enough to drink. Of course I've been short of breath so maybe that has something to do with it? So tired of thisrolleyes.

     Kathryn, I drink 1 liter of water thru the day, so not really thristy, but oh my goodness, the short of breath is NASTY. Pure hell. It makes me panic and want to run to the ER. I wheeze with it sometimes as well. Do you ever get the minor wheezing on days it gets bad? Ive been dealing with the shortness of breath for going on 9 months. Please let me know if you have found anything that makes it better or helps.

      wouldnt that be wonderous Snowbell, i mean is it so much to ask to be well, or, less than that, some understanding from the medical profession, we cant get past the gps in uk to speak with the real professionals, but i was lucky enough to see an endocrinologist who was treating me for hypoglyceamia, and it was him who diagnosed me on the menopause and thats where i learnt so much information, but i cant remember it all now im afraid..............typical...........ha but, i think there the best people to see over it, unless you can get an actual dr who specialising in menopause even better.

    Hi kathryan,

    Yes I go this off and on all the time. The doctor told me that I was pre diabetes. I just laughed and said yeah ok so premenopause has nothing to do with all the symptoms I am having. These darn doctors don't know crap about menopause stuff

    We actually know more than they do. I jus drink a lot of water and vitamin water. And short of breathe, and arms and legs feel like lead. Yes all of it. Your not alone my dear. Hang in there.

      if your arms and legs feel like lead, that is more than likely due to low blood pressure, and dehyrdation will be causing that, and thas why your thirsty, just keep drinking the water, it should ease that a lot, drink no more than 3 litres per day, and sip it every ten mins, that should help you.

      could be zigangie, if you had it before, then it will be worse now, if your bp is dropping especially if its making you feel passy out, then your not drinking enough, it will bring it back up when you drink.
