I’ve finally entered menopause! I had a very hard peri-menopause duration. It seemed to last forever. My symptoms were so bad that most doctors had no idea how to help me. Their expressions when I would describe my symptoms were of shock. I had the usual hot flashes that would come and go throughout the day and night. One minute I was hot and then the next minute I was freezing because of all the moisture on my body. My daughter would look at me as one was coming on and say are you having a hot flash? Visibly my face would start to sweat like I had just done cardio.
My emotions were a roller coaster that I never knew how I was feeling. One minute I’m happy and over the top with excitement life and then one minute later I was agitated and crying without any real reason for the change. My husband I’m sure started to think who is this woman I’m married to. I couldn’t stop crying somedays. It was hard!
One symptom no one really talks much about is nausea. I suffered with daily nausea for 3 years. One day it just appeared as a new symptom. I had no idea why I was suddenly nauseous. This symptom can be a result of a lot of real medical causes which started a series of tests, try this, now try this. Nothing worked. I ate so much ginger during this 3 years. Too many ginger candies, mint tea, pressure point wrist guards. You name it I must have tried it. I’m sure my body was suffering because I really wasn’t eating much. I wasn’t losing weight either. Why is that?
Well turns out we are completely integrated and unique. I discovered tools when I started to go to an integrative medical doctor. When I arrived to see her, I was at my lowest. My primary doctor had no idea how to help me. I was on meds to attempt to level out my emotional roller coaster. But I was not sick. There was nothing wrong with me when they ran tests.
