Why are there new symptoms almost every day?

Edited , 11 users are following.

Honestly. It seems there is something new to worry about almost every day. and how on earth can one person experience such a multitude of these horrible symptoms all at once? Or at least all in one day? Gas, pain, headache, depression, worry, anxiety, little pains all over, tinnitus, plus more. How are we even surviving, ladies? I am so thankful for this forum. There is no one else I know that is experiencing this. It's comforting to know we are not alone.

    Melanie I SO needed to hear this today. I am in same boat and now I've had horrible tooth pain since xmas and been to like 7 people, dentists, endontists etc and NO ONE will help me and the last one was an ahole who charged me 100 bucks to say he couldn't help me and my bite was just messed up. I lost a tooth last year, cracked, which I think has made things worse and health and work stress has worsened my grinding at night and I read recently perimenopause causes tooth issues and worse teeth grinding. I've already had sleep issues. I just wanted to cry today after I wasted 100 dollars on yet another person to say I was too broken to fix and he didn't care.

      It's so frustrating!! 2 years ago something was bothering me-- they took an X-ray and it was nothing.. Well recently I had a crown put in thinking that was it from 2 years ago BUT I still feel the bothersome area.. UGH!!!! My guess is I'll need a crown on the tooth next to it in a year or two. I get anxiety just being at the dentist

      Thanks Kelly. I'm just in so much pain since xmas and they don't even seem to care. The dentists. I need help and feel like everything is going to shizit and can't find a good doctor. It is like one painful thing after another since peri. Ruptured cyst, hair shedding, weight gain/loss, sleep issues and no this mysterious tooth pain no dentist even pretends to care about. And I'm single working for a company that's worried about funding. You women are all I have 😦

    Yes to new things... I thought for some reason I would just coast along BUT nope it seems like problem after problem.. It's like someone has a curse on me.. I have done well at getting appts done mammo, foot Dr., dentist, dermatologist etc.. Now something new just started.. a sharp pain on my right side by my hip and pelvic bone.. it's not cramps it's something different. Last night it woke me up and I felt it thruout the day some. I hope it goes a way soon cuz I don't need to worry about it. Ohhh and days before I felt a weird sensation on upper left breast-- not the palps this is different too. All I can do is laugh cuz I'm a mess...

      I can't believe how much I just don't wanna. I don't want to go out, even to get a coffee. I've lost myself too. I used to be so outgoing. Now, I just don't care. We need to hang in there!

      Me too with the going out, it's bad... It's nice that spouse goes mostly for the groceries but the times that I need to get something, I'm grumbling!! I do manage to drive to the pool which I don't mind but everything else is out the window.

    Hi, it is unbelievable how many symptoms we can suffer with.

    I wasn't aware that all these things can happen during peri and menopause until I started reading up on it recently. I thought the menopause was just hot sweats and no more periods!

    I have been 4 years with chest pains, heart flutters, air hunger, throat closing up (I even forget how to swallow!), tightness under my boobs and chest and constant headaches and aches and pains. I had so many tests that all came back normal so how could I feel like this and not have something wrong with me.

    I have started taking some vitamins I am going to try HRT soon and hopefully it will relieve some of the symptoms.

    Its not easy is it!

      Polly2020 - can you explain your throat closing up and forgetting how the swallow as ive been experiencing similar and its driving me insane. I have been going through this peri for at least 8 years and must have had every symptom possible, i think i'm going mad

    Yes it is unbelievable no one really talks about this publicly so I also thought menopause was just no periods, hot flashes and that's it. My mom claims she didn't even have those symptoms tho she has kids. I didn't even know there was a pre-hell called perimenopause! And doctors are clueless and treat me at least like it's all in my head, just anxiety, yet low progesterone and all the other health stuff, losing hair, pain etc causes the anxiety not being crazy!! I want to write an article about this but not sure what magazine will take it.

      hi Sakura - Have you tried going to a acupunturist or a massage therapist who specializes in cranial massage? it might offer you some relief - Nerve type pain is the worst! Hope you get some relief -

      You said a mouth full! I thought menopause was no periods (Yay) and a few hot flashes as well. I was fooled! It's a hellish experience. I rather have monthly periods than deal with this hormone bull crap! The symptoms come and go. I'm like the other ladies, I want the old me back and I want her to stay. This roller coaster ride is no fun and its exhausting. I continue to pray daily for all of us ladies experiencing this mess. Sending Prayers.

      Yes Crystal! And then I wonder if these women (like my mom) that say they had no issues are lying! How can the rest of us be in hell. I have been so anxious this week can hardly leave house. 😦
