Almost went to the hospital last night

I have not had a period for 5 months . This week I had an accupunture treatment- my first for perimenopause and also saw my gyno just for my anual check up. I was feeling pretty good and then two days ago my breasts felt like they blew up like ballons and my stomach was so extended. I did not pay any attention to it thinking it was the peri stuff- well yes I got my period that night.
I usually seldom have cramps and have had light periods. But this one is intense. The pain I was experiencing yesterday was so intense and unbearable my husband wanted me to go to the hospital emergency room. I was having cold and hot chills and got very nauseaous. Many years ago I had toxic shock and was hospitalized and it felt a little like that. The pain is centered about 1 1/2 inches or so below my belly button in my pelvic area. I took a vicodan and it put me out. The pain was subdued by it but was still there. This lasted throughout the evening and this morning I am feeling weak and tire. The pain is not so bad now but it hasn't let up. Also I am bleeding heavier then normal.
So can anyone relate to this or is this part of peri-menopause?
I called my gyno this morning and am waiting to see if I should have an ultra sound. I never had fibroids or any problems in the past like this.

That has happened to me. And the last two periods have been so painful I was almost ready to go to the ER. I wasn't bleeding real hard and I have fibroids and cysts but it wasn't from that, just peri. Just make sure you weren't pregnant or fibroids, cysts, etc. before you totally hang it up to peri.

Re: Almost went to the hospital last night

Hi Armadillo Pie;
I went last year with no period for 3 months and had a horrible period when I finally did get around to having one. I would suggest going to your doctor or telling him/her about this. It sounds like it's out of the norm for you. I have very heavy periods, have had all my life, but I have fibroids and endometriosis. Sorry to hear about your trouble, and I hope you get it checked out and you are o.k.
Sue

Re: Almost went to the hospital last night

Thank you both for your replies. It makes me feel heard, which is something I did not feel from my gyno when I called her today after I wrote that post. I told her of the excruicating pain and the hot and cold spells and nausea. She said it was all related to have not having my period for 5 months and I was having contractions. I do not have fibroids so that is not it. Then she told me to take Aygstin- a synthetic form of progesterone for 7 days each month and I will get my period regularly. I told her i did not want to take anything synthetic nor anything I do not know about. She seemed pretty focus on her way and I felt totally unmet and unheard by her. I said I would do the natural progesterone cream and she said she does not believe in it. She also would not schedule an ultra-sound to rule out anything else.
Today my period is heavy and I have cramps all day but compared to last night I can handle them. Last night was the worse pain I have ever had in my life other then when I had the toxic shock. I can not imagine ever experiencing anything like that again. Have you heard of this Aygstin?

Hi Armadillo Pie;
I think I saw some posts in the "women's health" section of this site for Aygstin, you may want to try looking at those. Hope you feel better!
