I don't know if anyone out there is in peri-menopause or experiencing menopause.
I thought I felt like a young 42, most people think I'm in my late thirties. I have been going through perimenopausal symptoms for the past year and as they intensify - they are really getting me down.
For a year it's been these radical, flooding periods that cause my car seat, clothes - whatever my crotch touches during that time of the mont h to get destroyed with floods of blood. It all lets down at once and comes out at once, lots of cramping and pain (which had previously disappeared after child birth)
I talked to my gyno aobut this and was poo-pooed right out of his office.
This month I am in the pain, craving the sugar, getting the migraines, and nothing but a few little dots the size of pin heads coming out. I also have this all over feeling like I am living inside someone else's body. It's horrifying. I feel like I am dying. I know this sounds absurd and dramatic , but it's really freaking me out. I am only 42. I feel like my body has turned itsel over to the death process and I am dying right now- like fast. It's really making me feel queer and panicked
I also have been - for the past 6 months- night sweating so much that I have to sleep on towels and change the towels and my clothes 2 x a night.
Is anyone out there. I feel like I am losing my mind. My doctor won't talk to me one stitch about this. I have read about Hormone REplacement Therapy and don't want to risk stroke or heart attack. I am reading that I will stop wanting sex
WTF? I am 42~
Not trying to high jack OP......... Sorry I have nothing to offer, except I've tried most of the over the counter meds, and nothing has really helped.
I have looked around on the internet. And as usual you can find about anything to support whatever I was believing at the minute.
But I would like more information if anyone has it.
I've always felt like we could fix about anything with nutrition. But I don't know about this one.
