My anxiety really flared up about 9 months ago after having my 2nd child. I Really Want To Believe This Is Just My hormones. With each menstrual cycle I get a different and new symptoms that are just so hard to understand. And every 3-6 months they come back stronger and change. With this last period I had severe head/neck pain that would not go away, felt like a constant pinching pain in my left side head and above the eye, it lasted for almost 2 weeks causing a bad migraine. I also get these little dizzy spells that come and go all day.... Trying Meds Barely helped. With my menstrual cycle before this one I had constant heart flutters and palpitations for a few weeks that were horrible. And a very bad gas pain under my rib cage that made me think possible GERD. 3 menstrual cycles ago, the night before my cycle started I had a sharp shooting pain in my left shoulder that was so strong it made me buckle over and cry. It felt like an explosive pain that would start slow and get strong like a contraction and go away after a few minutes. Once my.period started my arm was extremely sore for days. I've also experienced this same pain in my upper right chest and back. I'm not sure what would cause this. I know all my symptoms have one thing in common. My period! I need some answers, I had test done about 6 months ago, checked for blood clots, thyroid disorders, anemia, heart exam. All came back normal. So what do I do now? I'm starting to feel crazy when I tell my husband the amount of pain I feel on a daily basis, it doesn't sound believable. It's so hard bc it makes life so much harder to enjoy!
