Anxiety is the worst. I would rather feel low than anxious.
My anxiety tends to be of the more unfocussed variety, rather than about specific things (or at least things of which I am conscious of.) I assumed that was a facet of depression (which is an ongoing issue, not a new one.)
I have started having extreme headaches with nausea since I stopped being er perimenopausal, I suppose.
I have been to the doctor's about the low energylevels, and met with varying responses ranging from a shrug to questions about my mental health (as in, 'Perhaps you're depressed? No?) and vitamin/mineral deficiences. No one suggested menopause. This could be because last time I went with this I was in my 40s and they never check their notes, though. Maybe I should just go back and say might this be a menopause thing and can you do anything about it?!
I suppose when I say I haven't had menopause symptoms, then, I mean I've not had terrible hot flushes! Although I did
used to have night sweats, now I think about it. I think they lasted for less than 6 months. OK I am comforted now
re ADs I was on quite a high dose.
I think I need a nap now...
