Something upset my hormone balance
I assume that the peri menopause has messed up my hormones. In 2005 something tragic happened to me and I suffered from PTSD. I've had ADHD and LD my entire life and that makes PTSD harder to deal with. It makes everything harder.
The PTSD led to severe depression and a suicide attempt. After years of therapy, anti-depressants and family support, I finally felt like I was on the right path again. I continue to take my ADHD med as prescribed... a very low dosage and also a low dosage of lexapro. Then out of no where...BOOM...I felt like it was overnight, I started peri menopause. I now suffer from confusion, severe chronic fatigue, severe lack of motivation, memory loss, no sex drive, huge digestive problems, anxiety, worry and irrational thoughts, lack of energy, crying for no reason, feelings of hopelessness, migraines, bloating and weight gain (I have been the same weight since high school), depression, feeling off balance at times and my eyes and eye lids actually hurt. I can't stop rubbing them.
I am sure that there is more, but this is what I can think of right now. The first OBGYN I went to never got back to me with my blood work results and I couldn't reach the head nurse. They also told me I had fibroid tumors that would eventually need to be removed and then they sent me on my way with the promise that the birth control pill they put me on would do the trick. Nothing.
The second OBGYN I went to told me that I had a severe lack of progesterone, put me on a different pill and after doing a pelvic sonogram told me that I do not have fibroid tumors but they could not find my right ovary. They sent me on my way. The new birth control pill didn't work at all. I now have an appointment with a new OBGYN in 2 weeks that works with bioidentical hormones. I did a ton of research and I am praying to God that this works and I can finally get my life back on track again for the second time.
