Just an observation here. After going through mri, blood tests, cat scans, ekg, vestibular rehab therapy, and numerous numerous run of the mill tests why has it taken me over 2 years to figure it out on my own? Hormones. One simple words yet many complex symptoms. The doctors and Im talking GP, NP, physical therapists, neurologists, ents...all of them from the emergency room to the doctors office need to get educated more. Talk of perimenopause and menopause used to be taboo. Now you have so many of us suffering anxiety, depression, body changes weve never experienced and most doctors say oh its stress. Take ativan. Or depression meds. Until I came here I never realized how many of us suffer the same symptoms. Heck it was here I read others cant even go in big stores like Walmart without panicking anymore. Thats me too. Never had this in my entire life and one starts to feel crazy. I know theres no easy fix but I wish doctors would get a clue given were women and a certain age as it might be peri or menopause starting. None of them EXCEPT my obgyn mentioned it. I feel the more we make it known and let it out in the open then we can better manage our symptoms instead of playing guessing games. Im going to bring it up to every doctor I see from here out.
