    Good luck Jewels get the HRT if you can I have had to go hardcore too (migraines with aura so not allowed). Did a tally chart one night in bed and counted 28 flushes🙄

    Still in general they are easing now, but the worst thing for me was the panic attacks which came from nowhere for me. 😫

    Love

    I had a call on Monday and I have to go to have a face to face appointment this afternoon @frogmorton. He's saying he doesn't believe it's the peri menopause even though I have most of the symptoms so confused now hun any tips for my appointment greatly appreciated 🤔 xx

  • @Jewels tell him about Nice guidelines !! If u are presenting with all the symptoms then u need hrt ! Don’t be fobbed off with the contraceptive pill or anti depressants and blood tests probs won’t show hormone levels u must insist xxx

    Just to let you know @Hairobsessed123 that I went to see my doctor and he totally dismissed the peri menopause. He said my anxiety is through the roof to which I pointed out is a common problem of being peri menopause and certain other things he just tried to throw antidepressants at me which I refused going to make an appointment with another gp and see if I can get a different response I'll tell you one thing I am not backing down on this just thought I would let you know hun xx

  • Welldone for standing your ground !! Maybe ask if there is a dr that’s specialises in woman’s health regarding peri menopause u may have better luck xxx

    Thinking of you @Hairobsessed123 /hope your appointment went well for you. Do you have a contact number for your consultant who put you on sulfa? That can be really helpful if there's a nurse attached who has time to listen and work out what to do.

    @Jewels what a situation. I went through my new surgeries doctors one at a time until I found one I could talk to and get a sensible reply from. Keep searching for one who understands what you are saying. I too use a wheelchair when away to go round NT properties or gardens - otherwise I wouldn't get to see anything. At one venue I couldn't get upstairs but they had a room with a video walk through of the rooms etc which was great, I had a guided tour without leaving my chair!

    Aww thanks Yvonne I haven't gone anywhere yet you don't know what to do because the case's are rising again I have bought a lounger for the garden though lol xx

  • @Jewels @YvonneH

    Thankyou !! Sorry I haven’t been on !!

    I went to drs appointment and we have had a long chat about a lot of stuff and he has prescribed me antidepressants I think the psoriatic arthritis diagnosis ontop of the pandemic then low vitamin d and urine infection then hpv virus came up from my smear it’s had a huge impact on my mental health so he has said this might help me pick up and then he thinks I’ll start enjoying things I enjoy again !! ( I have started feeling brighter in myself today ) hope your both well x
