6-monther sisters!!

Well it has been 6 months today since my hyst. I can't believ it has been 6 months already !!! It is great not having abdominal pain anymore...but.....I still deal with insomnia, hot flashes and night sweats. I am on HRT 0.05mg of Estrderm. I also went out with my husband last week and we went to a arcade and we played Basket Ball. We I know that is one game my abdomen is NOT ready for !! I through about 4 long shots and my god I was hurting !!! My insicion area was killing me I couldn't finish the game.

I have been dealing with another problem. This HAS happened to me more than once, but this timed scared the you know what out of me..
I was at the computer and all of a sudden it felt like my hart was racing, my chest felt like it was pounding,I felt almost like I couldnt breath, but I was breathing, I got real dizzy and light headed to the point I was sure I was gonna faint. Then I got real hot !!!It lasted for a few minuets or so. I thought for sure I was having a hart attack !!! It scared me SO much !! Like I said this has happened a few times but this attack was SO severe !!!!
I called my GP the next day and talked to the nurse, and she said it sounded like I was getting a Anxiety Attack that could be caused by the Menopause. She told me to call my OB. I did and I have an appoinment on the 29th.

Has anyone else dealt with something like this??
This is freaking me out !! What can you do for something like this. Oh also, I have always dealt with ringing in my ears. that is something I have always had. But it seems since my hyst it happens alot more and the ringing is MUCH louder !! It is so weird !!!!

I have well had panic and anxiety attacks and now Im on prozac, and I did the samething, I thought I was having a heart attack to, when you feel like you cant breath take a drink of water or something, that always helped me. And if you have to be on anti depressants Id try prozac, I have been on about 8 or 10 differant meds and prozac has been the best for me, and makes me feel more normal. Good luck.

Certainly sounds like a panic attack to me or possibly low blood sugar.

I would certainly entertain the idea that it is also related to hormonal changes so I think you are wise to see your OB/GYN. an adjustment in your hormones may be all that you need.

Best wishes.

Thanks Sisters
I will try taking a drink of water next time like you mentioned. I am also going to check with my doc about my HRT. Maybe I do need something stronger or maybe something like Prozac. I guess I will know on the 29th !!
Much Love

Well I get kind of like that. My heart starts to pound, I feel funny like my blood sugar is dropping and feel really weird then boom I get my hot flash. I think this is kind of like an "aura" of when I get my hot flashes. This can happen once an hour sometimes or more. Only lasts less than 5 min or so. Could it be just your precurser to getting a hot flash? Just a thought. Some people experience more severe symptoms than others. Hope you feel better soon! Tiffany

Hi Tif
maybe it does have to do with my hot flashes..who knows..I DO belive I need a stronger HRT. I know mine is not stong enough.
I have been having problems with these possible Anxiety Attacks today. I am dizzy and my hart has been racing and so on...but I am also quite stressed out or P.O at my monster in law right now. She doesnt help!! Thank god she lives in Florida !!!! I couldn't imagine going through menopause, Anxiety Attacks and her living in NY !!!
