14 days before my period starts with a dread feeling. I don't sleep well normally but will be awake at 3 during this time. I'm not able to get back to sleep, but I go with the flow on this now. I get Panic feelings and not wanting to like anyone. Its Like I am a different person. Sensitive to noise. Loss of appetite. But eat cos I have too. Then can experience the runs after eating. This last for 2 weeks then get period.
I have been taking 125 mg of thyroxine
1x250mg St. John's wort
1x500mg starflower oil
1x b complex
last Month I didn't get anxiety but had 2 weeks of stomach pain?
I do suffer from anxiety and can have low mood at times but whatever happens 14 days into my cycle must exacerbate My psychological symptoms.
I am also a chronic blusher and when I get anxious I flush badly from the neck up which stays with me until I calm down. Skin specialist says they cannot do anything for it. In fact he told me
That you don't see it in older people so eventually it would go away! I'm 40!
Does anyone know if the gp's in the U.K. Will test for hormone deficiency. I had a similar spell 14 years ago post partum before being diagnosed with under active thyroid with antibodies and the dr said then that testing hormones is a waste of time. It seems so complicated that I don't really know what else to do?
