Weak and wobbly

Posted , 12 users are following.

does anyone get feelings like all of a sudden something very strange is happening - kind of hard to describe but like very light headed, extremley weak, like you just want to fall to the floor and collapse. ? then it passes after a while. A good way to describe it I think is like when you've had a huge shock and something terrible has happened - it's horrible.

      Oh gosh how awful for you....... Ive felt like this for ages now and I can't stand it because it's so random and you don't know when it's gonna happen as it can happen anywhere at anytime making you scared to go out . I would describe it like someone's just told me something dreadful and im in shock, just so awful........three years so far and it's not getting better , how about you ?

    Hi Lou. I think I know what you mean. I thought I was having a stroke when I experienced this! Apparently it's normal. It's almost like an out of body experience. I don't get it all the time, perhaps a few times a month. It's a very strange feeling x

      Hi Louise, oh how horrible for you and yes that's exactly how it feels - really strange and it's almost like you have absoloutley no control over it in any way, it completly takes you over and you can't stop it - like I say almost like you've had a horrible shock and you go all weak and shaky, shock like ? X

      Yes, and it's just one symptom in a long list of peri symptoms that I'm battling with. I've found the best strategy is to accept it's all normal, try to remain as calm as possible, and focus more on the good stuff. Hard to do, but you'll eventually get used to these symptoms and you'll find it easier. Wishing you all the best x

      Yes that's right just one of the horrible 66 symptoms and some ! It's just reassuring to know we're not alone on this nasty journey - we must try to focus on the hope that one day things will be better again. Hugs to you x

    Hi Lou

    Yes!!!!! I have this and it is one of the worst symptoms I have. It's not there all the time but b tends to be worse mid cycle or around period time. I have a suspicion it's something to do with my adrenals because it's like an exaggerated fight-flight response that is way out of proportion for the events that may be happening. I also get strange thoughts, like small things I think about make my heart beat faster, like I'm stressing about every little thing. It tends to just switch off, exactly like that and I'll be right until the next exciting episode!!.

    Oh yes!  And it completey freaks me out which then leads right into a panic attack.  I don't know if its hormonal - it would probably be good to track when they happen.  And its very difficult to describe to someone - "out of body" as someone else said is probably the best.  Honestly, with all the other horrible symptoms of perimenopause, this is one of the worst (and scariest) for me.
