New here..

I just joined this board with the hopes to find out I am not just crazy.
I have been pre since about 39, that is three years. But the symptoms have been getting worse. And I only had a doctor adimt I was a year ago. After going to many and haveing them tell me I am too young and it is in my head.

Anyway, I suffer many of the same things I have read about on here. But there is one thing I wonder about. I do not have a normal cycle anymore. Twice some months, not at all others. But right before I do get my period I have this feeling like I want to rip my skin off. Like I am just not right in my own body, can't sit still. That feeling lasts for like a day or two before till like the second day I have it. Is it just me? Or has anyone else felt this way??

Re: New here..

I think alot of us get that feeling shortly before our periods. I am convinced it has to do with a shift in hormones before my period starts. I feel alot of anxiety prior to my period and don't feel like myself at all. I also get a ton of heart palps during that time, I know they are brought on by the changing hormones and anxiety. A couple of Xanax really help. Check into getting a low dose anti-anxiety med or maybe try some Magnesium and see if it doesn't help those feelings before your period. Ann

Re: New here..

Thanks for the advice.
This feeling only started a few years ago and seems to get worse as each year passes.

Sadly though I can not take any of those kind of meds. As I have been on meds to control siezures for many years now.

I guess I will ask my ob at my next visit if there is anything else I can take.

Re: New here..

So sorry to hear you are suffering like many of us do! It IS frustrating, so say the least. Considering your health issues, you might talk to your doctor about other natural remedies that many women swear by. It might not bring you back to 100%, but may help ease some problems. Like: fish oil, magnesium, calcium, iron, just to name a few. I know personally, I really had to take a look at my diet. I've always eaten pretty healthy, but when peri really hit me hard, I realized I could improve. I was eating way to many carbs and not enough protein which I think contributed to my fatigue. I also think regular exercise can help as well and I don't mean hours at the gym. At a minimum, walking on a regular basis can help. We all have individual needs and you just have to keep searching and asking!
