I'd like to know if anyone else feels the way I do. I have a few days out of the month when I feel okay,the rest of the time I'm somewhere between feeling bad and REALLY bad. I had 2 periods in February,one on the 9th that lasted until the 20th,then again on the 22nd lasting until the 5th of March. Then nothing else until this past Friday. Since then I've been bleeding so heavy I feel weak and the fatigue is unbelievable. I took a shower and was completely exhausted from it. I had this same heavy bleeding in January,and was told by the Doctor that I'm perimenopausal and just have to live with it. I'm finding it hard to accept that my life could be like this for years and years. Does anyone have a Doctor whose shown more compassion,or is this what they all say about it? Since this started affecting me last year it's changed the person I am,and not in a good way. I didn't know what it was then and the Drs did all kinds of tests. I became fearful that I had a heart condition even though the tests show I don't. I still worry about that because I can't believe perimenopause can really make a person feel this awful. Just sitting here it feels like my heart is beating outside my chest and I swear if I close my eyes for longer than 5 seconds I'll be sleeping. Everything I did today took a major effort because of feeling so exhausted. I take an extra iron pill when I feel this way but it doesn't help. Sometimes I'm so lightheaded and dizzy I'm afraid I'll fall or pass out. My Mom and Sister think I should have a hysterectomy but the Dr doesn't agree. Can anyone here tell me if they felt like this,had a hysterectomy and felt better again? My biggest fear is if I find another Dr who would agree to it,that maybe after the surgery I'd feel even worse. I sometimes feel I'm going to lose my mind...I'm just so tired of feeling this way.
