i am new to this sight today. i am 49 and have been living a nightmare for the past year and a half. i keep chaulking it up to peri-menapause, but how can there be so may different symptoms.......gi problems, reflux, noisey gi. Changed eating habbits, no dairy, no pork, no caffine. anxiety, gitters, tingling, feeling like your body is humming from the inside, insomnia, hot flashes, rapid pulse, nerve twitches, brain fog, agitation, mood swings (happy sad angry cranky). some days i feel great others days i think i am going crazy. just wish i could feel good every day. I haven't had many regualar cycles in the past year or 2, but when i have a regular one i seem to feel better for longer periods of time. Saw my doctor a few times he gave me prevacid for stomach but it just makes it worse. game me bisoprolol for rapid pulse but make me feel awful cant take it. have ativan for when anxiety strikes but hate to have to rely on it. Please tell me that someone else out there knows where i am coming from and can give some advise.
