I am 48 years of age and I’ve suffered from anxiety for the last 8 of those years. I take medication which does help but over the last few months it’s rocketed!
About 4 months ago I started having spotting from the time I ovulate until my period started... this lasted 2 months then stopped. My GP did a Pap test, did all my bloods and had an US done... all came back fine. However I’m still beyond stressed.
I visited him last week and he did my bloods again and as I was so stressed and said he would refer my to a gyno... and if I wanted we could get a repeat US at day 3-5 of my cycle as this will be more accurate at assessing the endometrium. Also the gyno he wants me to see isn’t available until mid January and that’s totally freaking me out too, however he sent me a text today saying ‘I think your bleeding is hormonal so the review with Dr Smirnova is not needed urgently from my perspective. If you are feeling that you are freaking out it is better that you come in to discuss this with me so I can reassure you that you are safe.’
In my more rational moments I think that I’m not even spotting any more and I have had 3 US in the last 3 years and around 4 Pap test, all were fine... however at the moment my rational moments are few and far between... but surely if there was spotting something isn’t right??
I’m trying not to have another US as I’m trying to take control of my irrational thoughts but it’s so hard.
Is anyone else feeling this way too...?
