Unhappy Long Time

You know what's sad..I've been posting about peri for a long time..over 3 years. I've been feeling horrible for that long. And now..it just seems to be getting worse. I hope this means I'm reaching the end of it now. Good luck to all...this is not fun as we know.

Wink Re: Long Time

Hi Laye. Don't get discouraged. I had a few bad years with peri symptoms. Last year it got worse for about 8 months, I wanted to crawl under a rock and die. I am not on HRT of any kind. One day in November I woke up and most of my symptoms were gone. I now have hot flashes, night sweats and some anxiety, not half as bad as last year though. It does get better.

Re: Long Time

Thanks for saying that..gives me some kind of hope. You know I don't know if anyone else goes through this..but I count the time until I can go to sleep. I take something to help me fall asleep and it's the only part of the day where I feel relaxed and am able to calm down. I wake up thinking..another day of these icky symptoms. I know it could be worse...I know that. But this journey feels endless at times.

Re: Long Time

Hello,

I also had trouble with anxiety and lack of sleep until oddly enough I went on blood pressure medication. getting my blood pressure under control (less than 120/80) made a big difference in my symptoms. I know they say one thing has nothing to do with the other but going on bp meds was a godsend for me.

is your bp normal?

Re: Long Time

My bp has always been on the lower side..but last time I was at doc it was like 140/80..which was because i was so anxious. The doc didn't seem concerned..but that is higher for me. I am going back to the doctor on Monday..I'm going to check that out. Maybe that's part of my issues too.

Re: Long Time

It started that way with me - anxiety during a doctor's visit. Then I started checking it at home with a home monitor. I realized that my anxiety was affecting my bp and visa versa. my bp was often around the border and then during a pre-employment exam it was 165/89. That was when my doc decided to give me meds.

I sleep much better now that my bp is more controlled. Again, people say there is no connection but I thought a rise in my bp during the night was causing my sleep to be interruped. I don't know - maybe just a coincidence. but once I started taking the meds I noticed a change.
