Similar Symptoms to Pregnancy!
Hello ladies. I wrote a few weeks ago asking about VitD and I described an Anxiety episode I had while driving. I have continued to take the Vit D and magnesium and also added a B complex.
I am 39 and have started charting my menstrual cycles to pay more attention at whats going on. I noticed that the worst symptoms are not before the menstruation but around the time of ovulation. For the last two cycles I have had serious bloating and nausea with lots of salivation just like while I was pregnant. My pregnancies were hard with the nausea an excessive salivation (I had to carry a towel with me all the time to spit) even while taking Zofran (ondansetron) all through the prenancy. Right now I am in the days around ovulation.
Yesterday again I had a very hard time driving, anxiety again. When I got home I was very bloated and nauseated. Ate something and got worst with lots of salivation, just as if I was pregnant (which I am not). Things did not get better until I was able to fall asleep. I am like nothing happened in the morning. I felt the same bloated and nauseated last menstrual cycle, so much that I thought I had a stomach virus. This symptoms only occur in the evening and last for 3 or 4 days around ovulation. I will observe how things go this cycle but I am pretty sure it will be the case... Having the same symptoms as with my pregnancy do make me thing this is completely hormonal. I got saliva tests back and Estrogen is normal and Progesterone is low. But what is puzzling is that it is at the time of ovulation instead of right before I start bleeding.
What are your thoughts? This is so strange... Thanks for being there!
