Anxiety Support

Back again :(

Hi everyone hope u are all keeping well, well I'm back again :( after having my baby my anxiety hit a new low I was so poorly and crippled with anxiety I had an ambulance out at least twice a week for about a month I felt awful every time it was put down to anxiety so I pushed myself for my kids and started to feel a little better started going out and getting on with things, then all of a sudden I felt really crap again Afew days later found out I was pregnant again 😮 Then it hit me like a ton of bricks I went down hill big time, I put it down to hormones bringing my anxiety out again I'm convinced I have a hormone imbalance coz I swear my anxiety all started once I got the implant many years ago so anyway last week I suffered a miscarriage 😔 Clearly wasn't ment to be well now as u can imagine my anxiety is horrendous had the ambulance out 3 times since last week, I have got retained tissue left and doctors are telling me to wait it out so clearly making my anxiety abit worse but anyway I seem to be suffering symptoms worse than ever I'm so dizzy I keep seeing shadows in my eyes which is a new symptom for me, head feels so weird my scalp is so sore my legs are burning I feel weak I'm soooooo pale I look ill but all tests and Ons completely normal but I feel like I'm dying and will keal over at anytime 😔 I feel like a lump in my throats when I drink water my head feels like I have a brain tumour my shaky I'm just a mess 😔 Just needed to have a rant to people that understand how anxiety hurts and feels like an actual illness I think my family are sick of hearing it! Is there such thing as being sensitive to any sort of stress even the slightest thing sends my body into a state of illness.... still think a lot of it has to do with hormones anyone suffer with a hormon imbalance?

Firstly I am so very sorry to hear you have suffered a miscarriage and now have terrible anxiety.

I'm currently going through my peri menopause and my hormones are making my panic & anxiety a million times worse than usual.

Hormones in my opinion play a huge part in mental health.

Maybe ask for some medication to get you through this period.

I'm here if you want to inbox me & I'm sending you lots of calm wishes xxxx

I was on citalopram for about 10 years but came off last year when I feel pregnant so I might try to get back on them again see if it helps xxx

In the meantime the doc may give you a short course of diazepam or similar. It'll help reset your brain for the ongoing anxiety.

Also ask for you vitamin B12 to be checked as mine was really low & since having the injections I have felt better.

Life's a struggle with anxiety but I have no doubt you're a brilliant mummy xxx

I was reading about b12 yesterday actually I'll ask the doctor tomora although I think he's sick of seeing me haha I do have a very low folic acid deficiency so I'm not sure if that could be playing a role in this, iv vitamins and seem to make me feel like shit but I did read that sometimes the body needs time for these things to work in the kind of person that thinks things work straight away so give up very quickly lol xxx

I also have a folate deficiency & have to take it every day. You need the prescription one as the over the counter won't be strong enough to bring your levels up. The B12 injections are amazing & you feel better after the first one. Don't be afraid Hun I'm here if you need to ask me any questions xx

I'm going to start taking my folic acid again there the ones from the doctors I think there about 5mg so a lot stronger than the shop ones, thank you so much for replying to me 😘 Xxx

No problem, start taking them & don't be afraid to ask for help if you need it darling xxxx

Naddy you are going through so much by the sounds of things and I'm so sorry to hear about your miscarriage. Anna Saccone Joly on YouTube went through a tough time with hers if there's any help for you to hear someone else speak about something similar to what your going through. Trust your gut if you think it's to do with your hormones get to your doctor and start questioning them and asking for tests! I know what you mean about family or friends being sick of hearing your bad days but they only want to see you get better! Random but are you taking any probiotics? I know they can sometimes help with hormonal problems x
