Hello Ladies, Need some advice and help please. Not only have I been experiencing a lot of symptoms of GAD, but I am pretty sure I am also dealing with Perimenopause, which has a lot of the same symptoms of GAD. I read that perimenopause can heighten and worse symtpoms of GAD. My main aggravating sign of both of these are:
1. The "hot feeling" I keep reading about the hot flashes for both, but it seems like my hot feeling is more generated in my back, shoulders and back of my legs. But they last for more then a few minutes, and come and go all day and have been doing so for over week.
2. The next feeling is: a burning feeling in my mouth and my tongue. Yes, this a perimenopausal symptom.
Though I am experiencing so many more signs of perimenopausal that aren't worrying me or nagging me in the back of my head. The two I just mentioned are the two that are driving me insane, which just increases my anxiety. Both symptoms have been noticeable for about two weeks now. So, I guess what I'm trying to find out here, is this:
Have any of you had any of the 2 symptoms I just mentioned? If so, can you explain to me how you felt, how long they lasted? Any and all information will be greatly appreciated. With my health anxiety, if I'm having a symptom, as long as I know it's not life threatening, then I'm o.k. with it, and I manage it and move on with my day. Thank you ladies and have a great day :)
