I am 37 years old and I believe I’m in Peri-menopause (my mum and gran were both through menopause by 42 and 38). My symptoms have come in waves over the last three years, but have included anxiety, intrusive thoughts, fatigue, aura migraine, tingling, head pressure,brain fog, insomnia, cystic acne on jawline, incontinence, GERD, night sweats, prolonged bleeding for forty days at a time, etc.
I got pregnant in August (which was surprising) but unfortunately I had a termination due to a severe chromosome abnormality back in November and started Nat Pro at 200mg a day straight away.
I originally experienced further estrogen dominance and an upsurge in my symptoms, but after two weeks this settled down. I felt so much better from mid-Dec up to last week.
Over the last week, my symptoms have started to return. I have been struggling to stay asleep, the head pressure is back and I’ve been getting some dark thoughts. I have experienced some stress lately. As well as the upset following the termination, my work have been horrific with me since the termination and I felt like they were trying to force me out. I’ve been for two job interviews, which have been incredibly stressful as they are very intense full days. I fortunately secured another job. I felt so great when I got the news, but a couple of days later I felt my symptoms returning.
What do you think is happening? What would your advice be? What other supplements would you recommend? Do you think I will feel ok again?
Thank you so much in advance. It’s just so frustrating because my personal and now work life are sorted and I want to enjoy them rather than feel like this.
