Tremors, Shakiness, Burning Skin and Visual Changes

Posted , 14 users are following.

Been Experiencing Tremors, Shakiness, Vibrations, and Visual Changes and Disturbances. I have been through so many Tests for months and Months now. I am not sure if visual changes and Disturbances are a part of perimenopause but I did read that Hormone Changes do effect your vision. I did just go the the dr. and they said I had post concusion syndrome....so maybe the visual changes come from this. If this is all menopause then wow I can't believe women have to go through this!!!! it can be debilitating......Waking up during the night with rapid heart beat, itching burning skin, trembling, Shaking, Sweaty hands and feeling Hot All of a sudden. Then Crying all the time out of no where. What can I do to help these symptoms? All my tests from drs. come out normal what is such an awesome thing!!! I also feel lime little insects sometimes are under my skin.....Also does anyone feel less bowel control and urine control?

    Dear shana

    When you say visual changes what do you experience? I had and occasionally have still visual auras (coloured zig zags) but no migraine to follow, i believe these can be a peri/meno symptom x

    I am going through the same and more. My sight is so blurry I can't read anymore and can only type a bit at a time. it's the worst symptom. I get migraines that give me stroke like symptoms. I have suicidal thoughts because I can't function anymore and don't see the point. I can't take hrt anymore. I am taking femerelle which does help with the flushes and dizziness a bit. I wish I could give you better news but I can only send my sympathy and reassure you you're not alone.

    Hi Shana, yes, I've had all these symptoms. Most have calmed down now after two years but not gone. The visual disturbances I had were lightening bolts off to the side of my right eye. And now and then when I go outside I see silver glitter rain coming down. All so strange. I was checked out by an ophthamologist and all was normal too. Also brain MRI's normal.

    All the other symptoms as well as the visual stuff are enough to make one think one is checking out. I seriously thought I didn't have much time left on this earth. I was so ill. Yet all my tests were normal. How can you be so sick and nothing is wrong?

    Eventually I found out that viruses were creating some of the havoc since my immune system was weakened from the drop in hormones. And all the anxiety and depression was probably causing their own symptoms too. It was a really horrible time in life.

    Two years in and I'm still not a well woman, but I do have days where I feel pretty good. This past week was really good, it's like I get one week a month where I feel decent and then the burning/aching/stomach stuff comes back again. It's definitely hormone related. But the severest symptoms are no longer here, the shaking/bad flu feelings/frozen shoulder/heart palps/visual disturbances/breast and ovary cysts, etc...

    Try and hang in there. Feel OK knowing your tests are normal and that other women are suffering the same. All you can do is take care of yourself the best you can, boost your immune system. Progesterone cream helped me with spotting. You could try HRT if you want to go that route.

      All my tests came back normal. My Brain MRI was normal meaning no Auto Immune Disease or Caner or Tumors Thank God. The Neurologists did say I had a. saagging Brain but its common. The Celebrium goes a little below the line....which if you brain gets knocked around like from a car accident it could produce symptoms... sure if its this the concusion or menopause...my neck etc....

    Itching and burning skin could be allergy / food related. That would also make sense with the bowel and urine control issues. Do you notice these symptoms after certain foods? I get just as you describe with gluten, dairy and some fructose. The skin burning is tremendously disturbing! But my GI doctor said guts = skin. What's going on in your guts shows up in the skin.
