UGH!! As usual- 2 hours after waking up!

Posted , 9 users are following.

Felt amazing this morning, and as usual, 2 hours after getting up, and halfway through coffee....shakes start, weird head, (almost like a tremor or vibration that you can actually "feel" if that makes ANY sense) and just that overall feeling of panicking that it's gonna be a horrible day :-( 

Right away had a Garden of Life shake, teaspoon of black strap molasses and 2 teaspoons of ACV w/water.

Shout out to all of my peri ladies DEALING with a changed life :-( 

I'm so thankful for the "good hours"

    Hi know the feeling I had bloods done last week that made me worry and anxious..sometimes I don't know how I feel no more, I tell everyone I got better but I still have some meno issues, yes we do think about the next day and how we will feel or when it will end, one minute I'm getting enough sleep the next not getting much, periods coming to end soon fingers cross in January that's if they don't show up between then and now and I worry after the 12 month how I'm going to be,anyway,we have to take each day as it comes.

    Shout out to you too!!! I've had a crappy few days of those same symptoms as well, so you're not alone - mornings are the worst, especially during and after my period, get to relax for a few hours in the evening but by then I'm too tired to enjoy it! I've been taking dim which seems to be helping, but still getting these bad 'spells' hang in there! xxx

    First of all, ditch the coffee!! Drink some warm water with lemon. We have to start acting like Grandmas. UGHHH

    No seriously, ditch the caffeine if you can, even decaf is 1/2 caf, so that doesn't work either. See if the shakes aren't as bad. 

    When I'm feeling awful I notice it, so I have to start reminding myself to recognize when I'm not as bad too. 

    My shakes are slowly starting to go away, every now and then I will feel it a little bit, but nothing like it was last year at this time, or even in the beginning of the summer. So I'm assuming things start calming down the farther you get in to meno. Having missed three periods now, maybe that's starting to happen to me. But I still feel like I've been run over by a semi, and my feet keep burning, and feel sick. SOOOOOOOOOOOO tired of this all.

    And really, about the diet, I was doing everything last year, including the black strap molasses and ACV. Cut out everything bad, was eating strictly clean diet. Nothing, and I mean nothing, made a crap of a difference. I guess my body was healthier because of it, but who would know?

      Suzanne I'm really happy for you that the shakes are subsiding. That's one of the most annoying things for me! The shakes and sometimes almost like tremors. They don't last very long for me but they're always scary. 

      Everytime I feel like it's some horrible thing about to happen.

      One thing I CAN say, is after learning so much from the ladies on this forum, I can almost pinpoint the symptoms, when they're the worst, right down to the days of the month where my hormones would be dropping or rising the most. 

      Obviously there's no map or perfect calendar, some days are just bad no matter what. But what I call my "super symptomatic days" (<<<that helps my in my crazy mind remember I'm not dying lol) are almost to the tee when hormones would be raging.

      If it wasn't so terrible and scary if me amazed at how it works lol

      When I started charting my symptoms I definitely noticed a pattern, and I always felt a bit better mid cycle when I would be ovulating. That’s when I realized that this total sh** storm might be hormone related.  I had already been to so many doctors and had my gall bladder out before that came to light. It’s still hard for me to believe feeling so bad can be meno related. And it really helps reading others feeling the same.

    Not sure I understand... are you up for 2 hours, drinking coffee and not eating anything at all? Or up for 2 hours and then having coffee on an empty stomach?  When do you eat breakfast?

      I do coffee like a "wake up" pull lol. 

      My two vices- coffee and cigs :-(

      I wake up, drink coffee and have a few cigarettes, and don't eat.

      After two hours of being awake- it starts.

      I know I NEED to start eating a healthy breakfast before that coffee :-/

      I know exactly how you feel. I’ll wake up and feel good and then drink coffee (with or without food) and about 2 hours later I get the internal shakes as I call them because I’m not physically shaking on the outside but inside it feels like I’m shaking, then I get a lump feeling in my throat and from there the anxiety takes off for the rest of the day. I was starting to drink wine in the evening because that was the only thing that seemed to help calm me down. I thought I was going into peri several years ago but doc said I was too young, I’m 49 now and had all blood work done 6 months ago including all hormones, thyroid, and anything else that could be tested and all came back normal! Was still having clockwork periods except for one or two missed periods over the last several years and now have nothing in 2 months other than a day of the tiniest spotting. This anxiety is killing me. I just read somewhere that mega dosing Inositol (vitamin b8) is a miracle for the perimenopause anxiety. Has anyone tried it? I could use any advise, this is so debilitating!!!

      Ouch.  As a former smoker,  coffee drinker, and breakfast skipper, I get where you're coming from.  I used to get into a full-blown panic attack on my way work in the morning-- of course, after chugging coffee, smoking a few-  as in, as many as I had time for before leaving the house, and not eating anything, my body got seriously messed up.  Those "inner trembles" are from low blood sugar. It's your body's way of saying please feed meeeee.

      A lot of people turn green at the very idea of food in the morning, and I was one of them. I now eat breakfast within 15 minutes of waking up, and to be honest, I don't love it, but it's just what I have to do. I eat the exact same thing every morning so I don't have to think.

      I tapered off coffee years ago because it stopped being enjoyable. Seems like my body was just telling me "do not want". Now I have green tea.

      If I were your nutrition coach, which is what I do, I'd wouldn't ask you to give up coffee and cigs for the time being, but I'd suggest you consider committing to getting breakfast down within 30 minutes of getting out of bed.  Believe me, it will make a huge difference. smile

      Hi Michelle , I too would have a cup of coffee but that was about all I could handle in the way of caffeine, I would get low blood sugar bad , but I did smoke and when all this hit me like a Mac truck, I was so sick I never smoked another ciggarete again and it's been a year and half, honestly I thought I'd be a smoker the rest of my life, as smoking went very well with my beer and wine I drank, can't do that either, since peri/meno, it has just made me too sick with symptoms.. So one or two good things have come out of this nightmare I call peri/meno no more smoking!! So I too wake up and eat the same thing for breakfast too, but not much more I need more of a variety , as a nutrition coach what do you suggest for diet for peri/meno, Hashimotos and Rheumatoid arthritis I don't do gluten and I'm low histamine as well, so what are some good food choices?? Thanks?
