Went drs but now I’m scared

Natsteveo profile image

Well went to drs because I’m convinced myself something is wrong keep getting red hot face and literally wet through with sweat I was even shivering last night. Having a lot of abdominal pain so he bow thinks I could have a ovarian cyst again… so now I’m in a right state keep thinking something is really wrong and I’ve even convinced myself something else is wrong I can’t seem to stop I know I’ve been here before but it’s just convincing my mind to go away and stop doing this to me anyone else go through or gone through this this could really do with some help

Hi sorry to hear this and hope you find some answers.

I don't know your age but is it possible you are going through the change?

Oh I did wonder if it was you Nat ha ha. Why have you changed your name - you are just confusing me now!

Yes this sounds like the change to me. Not the abs pain but the going red, sweating buckets, going from hot to cold suddenly. Definitely menopause symptoms. I also found that whilst the change didn't make any new problems for me the existing ones I had such as depression, emotional instability got worse through it.

I eventually went to the doctors to go on HRT which did a good job of controlling the symptoms. I still occasionally get the hot flushes but nothing like they were. My body temperature even now though is a bit erratic.

I tell you what though Nat when you come out the other side it is marvellous. I felt like I did as a child again - no moods, emotional instability, my depression improved and anxiety.

You can also wear white trousers again.... 😁🤣 x

So sorry to confuse you sweetie…. I’m literally sat on my sofa all windows open and I’m wet through with sweat my chest is soaking my face feels red hot but I don’t have a temperature just burning I reckon some of it is anxiety as well though I’ve been here before with my anxiety but every episode is all different to me and my depression and Ptsd had definitely spiked again for sure how are you feeling babes anyway … I love white trousers as well lol 😂 cx

The best thing to do Nat if you are able is to have a cold shower. The relief is amazing!

I remember being in a pub playing darts in the middle of a cold February. I was marking the board when I got an horrendous hot flush. I felt like I was burning up so had to let someone else take over (I never did this) and I went outside in my T-shirt fanning myself with a beer mat. That is the definition of a hot flush - awful.

Go to the doctors and get some HRT.

That’s so true just comes on don’t it out of nowhere drs giving me a blood test to find out it I’m peri menopausal he said I’m too young yet but I’m not convinced I’ve known plenty of women who started having symptoms in their 3o’s cx

I started mine at 42 so your doctor is talking a load of BS.
