Uhg so I finally get one of my health issues under control to have a sudden other issue go down the drains I just cant win.
2 years ago I was sent into an endocrinologist by my GP, Rheumatologist, and Gastroenterologist combined. The worry was early menopause causing bone issues and addisons disease. Well they decided I was borderline for both but when one went the other would probably go. I got told what to watch out for and advised I’d probably hit the menopause early due to my many other issues.
Its been a crazy spring/summer for me. First I couldnt lose weight after a round of steroids. I was frustrated and angry my sugar went nuts. I got it under control then started losing without trying like I did 2 years ago. I swept it under the rug. This year I’ve also been tanning insanely again swept it under the rug I’ve been outside whatever. I’m also tired, swept it under the rug. I had 2-3 non existant periods this spring in high training swept it under the rug.
Well I cant sweep it under the rug anymore.
Too Much Information ALERT: 3 weeks ago I finished an 8 day period, 8 days ago I started another that hasnt stopped. I’m exhuasted right now. I also made the call to the gp I’m not sure where they’re going to send me but looks like I’m due for multiple tests again. There is no possibility of pregnancy. The only good news is I was told I could have rollers for a few years before the whole circus comes to a crashing hault so I’m hoping this summer is like the summer I met my husband its just stress and it will ride out and go back to normal. Uhg so now I wait for the phone call from my doctor and then we decide who does what tests and where do I go from here: endo or obgyn. Probably endo :/.
I just got one issue under control why is this happening now? Cant I catch a break?
Ladies who had early menopause how did you handle it? I am not having more kids but this is a real risk to my health on a lot of levels. How do you emotionally handle this situation? What options did you take to help your body cope?
