Hi

 

Can you give me a full description of your symptoms?

 

Elevation of FSH would be expected in a 52 year-old woman.

Hi, thanks for your reply

two years ago ,i experienced the first hot flash along side muscle cramp when i was sleeping at night. at that time it was with some symptoms like panic attack _shortage of breathing, shaking the muscles_.it happend six months later again, after that the gaps betwen these episodes have become less and less. one year ago suddenly i felt somthing like hot water purring from top of my head to my feet, and feeling a sever pressure in my head. from that time i am feeling bad pressure in my head and face specialy left side,and also in my throth and chest so that they make me depress and anxious. sometimes cramp the muscles so that it makes me get up during sleeping at night, and feeling weakness in my muscles of body specialy in my hands and legs, since 2 weeks ago i feel like electric current in my head and face which spread my body with vibration.,i often have these symptoms. i visited different spicialist ,CT scan, MRI,different test , nothing is found. i am on bioidentical hormuns which helped me with Hot flashes. these symptoms make me upset and sometimes unwillingly cry deeply.

Hi

 

I am sorry to hear about that.

 

Have you got someone looking after your mental health?

 

Dr Jef

Customer: replied 4 years ago.

HI,

yes, i have visited 2 neurologists. and a lot of tests, but they say nothing is found. i think they canot find the reson.

Expert:  Jef Burk replied 4 years ago.

Hi

 

Have you spoken to anyone about your anxiety/depression?

 

I strongly suspect that your physical symptoms are a manifestation of an emotional problem.

 

Dr Jef

Customer: replied 4 years ago.

hi, what do you mean by emotional problem. i feel very happy with my life apart of these recent symptoms. i have done yoga and meditation since 15 years ago. i have a very kind husband ,good children. no problem whatsoever .i am a spritual person with no tention in my life . do you still think it is because of emotional rather than hormunal.

thanks in advance

Customer: replied 4 years ago.
what kind of information do you need?
Expert:  Jef Burk replied 4 years ago.
Hi

Sorry - I was offline.

Well your symptoms do not really fit with a particular physical diagnosis - indeed you have seen several Drs already who have not come up with an explanation.

You mention " crying deeply"?

Dr Jef
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

Hi , i realy do appologise for taking your time, but my question is , whether you suggest me to see a psycologist? thanks a lot

Expert:  Jef Burk replied 4 years ago.
Hi

Absolutely - I think that would be most appropriate!
