The anxiety is so horrid! I am taking progesterone supplements from a compounding pharmacy. Because I still have a regular period, I'm directed to take the progesterone starting day 12 or 14 through day 28. During those two weeks, I don't feel any anxiety. I fall asleep, I don't sleep fantastic, but I do fall asleep and sleep. Well, I'm on my 2 weeks off of the progesterone and I can't stand it. I can't fall asleep, I have to take something to fall asleep because my brain will.not.sleep. I get shots of anxiety and heart palpitations. I can deal with it during the day but when I'm laying in bed trying to sleep, the adrenaline bursts or anxiety or whatever it is will jolt me out of my sleep
I'm just counting the hours till I can take my progesterone come Friday.
When will this end? :cry: Honestly, I could manage and deal with most of the peri-stuff if it didn't affect my sleep so much. Either I can't fall asleep or I fall asleep then I wake up sweaty. The closest to normal sleep is when I'm taking progesterone supplements. And it is nice to not feel the anxiety or feel so easily startled when I'm on it.
I have no idea why I'm so hyper-sensitive to hormone fluctuations. I think I always have been. Birth control pills were always difficult for me, horrible morning sickness when pregnant. I guess that's just how my body reacts to any change in hormones
