Feel like passing out during a hot flash?

I started perimenopause about 10 years ago, and I'm still dealing with it. I'm having these spells and now I'm wondering if they are "just" hot flashes. I never had these exactly before. It usually happens right after I eat. I get very hot and break out in a sweat and feel nauseous and like I'm going to pass out. Anyone else feel that way with their hot flashes?

    Hey Michelle...I sure will pray for you...homeschooling is a chore, but I know that it will show high marks later on in life. Sorry you feel so @#$%&...sometimes wee just have to put the yucky feeling away, and do something else. I can drive myself crazy by researching something to death, my husband calls me a Cyberchodriach...and he is right. Most of the information out there does not even pertain to our personal situation...and can even drive more stress into us, even though the researching makes us feel good for a temporary time....have you been to the Dr. to discuss your tingling? What was his/her suggestion? Nausea is one of the main symptoms to stress also, so it could be all related if you put your symptoms together...and of course, I so believe that Perimenopause is the trigger point. Hormones need to be balanced in order for good health, so when they are messed up, our bodies don't work the way they were designed to. Take care, and I will pray. Yvonne

    Forgive me if my message is a little disjointed, I just lost my second baby and had to have another D&C and am not quite "with it" yet. I know someone who refused to do the HRT thing because of concerns over the risks of it, and I seem to recall her mentioning the cream form of progesterone. She recommended it to me to help w/ ovulation and it really worked, and she told me that she had used it too, but I think it was during menopause that she used it. (The dr had given me the pill form of artificial Progesterone to help my body ovulate and I hated the very harsh side effects. The natural form cream had none of those side effects, was very easy to use, and the container was still not empty after the few months I used it. My first D&C seemed to jump-start regulating my ovulation,making the cream unnecessary.) (I am unsure of what one needs to replace during menopause so I apologize in advance if I misunderstood what she was telling me and progesterone is not needed then.) I paid a hefty price at a health store for the cream but recently saw it at a WalMart in the vitamin section. I didn't look at it closely so I don't know if the quality was the same as what I had used or not. The same woman recommended the book "What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Menopause" by Dr. John Lee. (Yes, I wrote that down; you never know when info like that may come in handy for someone. Case in point--this message!) Hope this is of some help.

    Seedmama, I'll file away that info about the scorpion sting and ammonia for the next sting. This was my first scorpion sting in 6 or 7 years. We had lots of scorpions the first few years, including inside the house, which seems typical in new homes here, but not many recently. I DID hear you honking as you went down I35 this time, and told Tim "There she goes again....." lol I bet Houston was awful, weather-wise. When is their humidity not in the killer range? I know our dew point here was as high as 75 yesterday, and someone from Texas told me their dewpoints there were in the 80s. As far as I know, we've never hit the 80s in the dewpoint here in southcentral OK, although those of you in central thru northeastern OK might have since y'all have more humidity than us most of the time. Thanks for reminding me that April was weird. hee hee Do we ever have a month when our weather is not odd? Maybe October of some years? Diane, Any rain is good. I hope some falls here...they've put a 20-30% chance in every day in the seven day forecast after today. It is not much of a chance, but any chance is better than no chance. In some areas, the cracks in the clay are almost 1" wide. I am getting a bad feeling about this summer, Maybe it is because last summer was cooler than average in June and most of July and wetter than average, but this June seems so much hotter and drier by comparison. OK, off to Gainesville to the community playground with Maddie. We'd be there already, but her grandparents completely wore her out yesterday and she slept until 10 a.m. It is partially shaded but I still like to get there pretty early in the day to 'beat the heat' if such a thing is possible. I've been up for hours and outside so long today I already feel hot and wilted and worn out and she's as fresh as a daisy and full of energy. Aaargggh! Youth vs. old age, I guess. Dawn

    Possibly is a hot flush Catherine. I always feel cold for a while after one. Some people have them more intensely than others and as you say, you never do things by half! There is always the possibility that this may be something else though, so check with your Doctor. Joan

    I am one of those people that think that losing weight would solve half the Americans health problems... but usually, that doesn't include menopausal symptoms, due to the fact that estrogen is stored in fat, so it makes sense that the fatter one is, the less menopausal symptoms they have... but I dunno. Glad it worked for you! Stay thin! :o) You GO GIRL!

    I get that 'tingle' vibration and dizzyness at night! It wakes me up, get tingle, vibration in head, down arms, kinda dizzy in head, then big wave of heat, sweat! Had a neck injury and its almost like the muscle tension in the neck, increased by menapause stiff muscles, joints is blocking the blood flow to the brain when the flash occurs or its just night sweats, menapause. Worry for nothing. Chiro and doc says neck no major injury.

    Hi there,

    I have been suffering for nearly six years with menopause symptoms and for the majority of it have been told by doctors that it is not hormonal. I have had hot flashes, nausea that used to culminate in panic attacks, sometimes vomiting, diarrhea, acid like feelings in my stomach, dizziness, crying spells etc.
    I am still suffering although the panic attacks are gone due to Dr. Levinson diagnosing me with an inner ear problem that the hormone change brought or ignited. I also seem to have IBS.
    I am still searching for answers to the IBS and now dizziness. I was told I am severely anemic and my hair is falling out as well. I'm aslo facing taking care of aging father who was diagnosed with dementia.
    It really helps to read and compare stories.
    Take care,

    Hi girls

    I was so happy to find this forum as I had my first hot flash today and I came home to research it as I was sure it was cancer! I am 47. I was walking in Walmart and suddenly my knees felt stiff, my feet were heavy and I was out of breath. I also felt weird, not sure how to describe it. I was exhausted for no reason. Then the sweat came...my neck was wet to the touch, and with the big winter jacket on. The flash lasted for 15 minutes but the other symptoms persisted even 2 hrs after, the feeling of weakness and trembling and feeling weird...oh I was also suddenly in a mood from hell.
    I have been having night flashes for a few years now and sleeping 4 - 6 hrs max a night, but today was the first flash where I was awake. I was kind of ok with the night flashes as at least I was asleep for most of the time.

    Are there some supplements that any of you are taking, natural or vitamins, minerals that actually relieves the symptoms somewhat?

    Peri2008 ater I read all your posts and giggled a lot about what peri is doing to your life I started feeling better for the first time after the flash today. Thanks for that :-)

    Nanny11, you're definitely not a nutcase -- or if you are, then you're in good company with all of us who have been enduring the strange and troubling symptoms of perimenopause!! I lost hair on a regular basis for several years -- I really wondered whether I was going to be partially bald!! But after my hormones stabilized (around age 52 - 53), I noticed less hair falling out thank goodness. My hot flashes also showed up later in the perimenopause process and there were some that caused great anxiety -- and a few times I felt like I was going to faint. I'm sure this was all due extreme hormonal fluctuations, but it was unsettling nonetheless. There were about five years that I didn't feel like myself -- I felt much older than I was, and I missed my former vibrant self! That part of me is just now coming back but it took a long time. I kept coming back here reading the stories of other ladies, and it helped me so much to know I was not alone in my suffering. No you're not a nut at all!! Glad you found this forum so you can share what's going on and also know all of us understand what you're going through.

    I am 52 and have a very light period (mostly spotting) every 3-4 mos. but just last month I had a regular heavy period with cramps, something I haven't had in a few good years. This evening, I just got off the phone w/my hubby telling him how weak I'm suddenly feeling then after hanging up, started walking to the kit cabinet to grab one of my supplements (Womens Wellness) and I started feeling so warm from my hands on up to my face, shortness of breath and feeling like I was just about to pass out! I knelt over on the kit counter, hurried and swallowed my supplement then sat in a chair w/my head between my knees taking slow deep breaths. My heart was racing but within a few mins. I was feeling back to normal! It definitely is hormonal and taking these supplements has helped me greatly. I buy them from HSN, Andrew Lessman's Women's Wellness. A lot of women have had much success in alleviating the hot flashes and discomforts of peri and full blown menopause from taking Women's Wellness (you can find them on HSN.Com). This may be something some of you may want to try to see if it helps. Read the reviews from everyone and see if it's what you too are experiencing. It can't hurt, but let me tell you, it helps me to no end as I would probably be experiencing worse symptoms had it not been for taking these life savers! Every bit of info can help us attain a much easier passage thru this.

    2 years since last post, hope that means you're all doing better.

    I've Been dealing with these " hot flashes" for awhile. Had blood work, I'm not in menopause..

    Yesterday I had the worst spell ever. It got so intense so quickly, and ended with me crawling across my floor to the shower and just getting in there and sitting 20 minutes in Luke warm water.. I was pretty sure I was about to die.. most traumatizing thing I've ever dealt with, and I Have an extremely high tolerance to everything.

    I literally felt like I was burning..

    Went to er, hubby was worried about stroke, ( now I'm thinking maybe shoulda checked heart instead). Anyway, they did blood work, ua, and brain ct. Everything came back normal.. I just had the scariest thing ever happened to me, and there's NO trace of it?? I've had these episodes for years, but in the last 6 months they've gotten more extreme.

    I did go to the gyn a few months ago, because I thought, menopause. I'm only 44, but like the lady above, I started early. They checked me out, did blood work. And said I was no where near menopausal... I'm so confused. I don't think i can handle another spell like that, ever! But I'm still clueless as to what happened.

    Here is another one that can be feeling normal one moment and the next, feel like someone just hit me with a flamethrower. The heat is so intense that it takes my breath away and has me gasping for air. I get nauseated and feel like I will face plant right into the floor. I had gotten off of my period on the 10th after seven days. But I am cramping again like it is about to hit me again. UGH! I have been skipping months and didn't have one in August '18. If I survive, I will be 48 on Sept 21st. I have to rub my face and neck with a cold cloth and if I am lucky I don't get a cold flash that makes me feel like I am getting the flu. I panic too and think yep, I have every horrible disease known and feel like I am dying. I feel for all of you and everyone one else that suffers thru these nightmarish episodes and hope that we all make it through and get free of them.

    My doctor was telling me I was not in menopause, that was a bunch of crap. Many of these doctors have no idea. I was on prescribed meds for years. I finally went to a holistic health center and got on some natural supplements. I feel like a new person! Go natural theres herbs that have been used for thousands of years that will help!

    HU-46695237 I am a perimenopausal female and I know what you are saying. I teared up while reading your symptoms. I definitely can relate because I have GERD/ARD and was diagnosed in 2004 as having it. You describe the symptoms so well. It is sheer misery to eat at times because with me, I get those symptoms plus it feels like a heart attack with crushing pain in my chest. Maybe we need to see a specialized stomach doctor? Although, I could not afford to go. So we are stuck with a mystery ailment that makes life miserable for us. I wish you all the best and know that you are not alone in suffering these symptoms. -Tonya

    Thanks for the reply i happen to run across this site tonight searching as i always do for a real long time now 5 years for the treatment or cure for this awfulness and see where others might have thought it was a women thing and i could not help from laugh because i'm no women lol but i have heard that women do have symptoms going threw this but when they mention there symptoms being tied to what they eat it don't seem like this case it seems like the same exact thing that tons of people are going threw on the net and getting no answers some have found cutting certain food like gluten out or they may have a bacteria overgrowth or even a case or two of acid reflux causing it and they treated there problem and the issue resolved but not in my case and tons of others online and it sad because i read up on the leaky gut stuff and this was the time i knew food was causeing or making me worse i tortured and starve myself till onday i looked in the mirror and said what am i doing to myself and i could not do this any longer i mean my bones was showing in my ribs and pretty much everywhere it was a scary sight i mean i am a tall guy 6ft 4 normal weight for me is 230 i was down to 160 i weighed 180 in high school i think i'm now 38 or 39 i can't remember but pretty sure it's 38 lol anyways let me tell u it was scary i have seen many doctors and all test pretty much comes back as normal i also have barretts esophagus which could turn into cancer so i have seen a gi doctor or two they say acid reflux will not cause my problems i also get the chest pains when you think things could not get any worse it does it's like every year i get a new symptom i also get the coughing and mucus non stop it seems it would be easier to name what i don't have then do because i can't seem to think of any i don't they said i had fibro and anxiety and acid reflux was the start of it no meds help my symptoms as of yet i will hope i will one day figure this out and help the many people on the internet not too many things i have not pushed threw i'm that type of guy just get back up and try again well this has i don't know how to put into words so i would say kick my butt over and over again i originally thought it was a side effect from the reflux medication i was on

    Hi, and you get the mucus? Have you gotten the burning in your throat when trying to sleep? If you eat, you get sick and if you don't eat, you get sick with this. So, you have had lots of tests and doctors still don't know what is causing it? In other words, they think it is in your mind with anxiety and fibro. Back in '17, I spent a night in the hospital because I thought I was having a heart attack and they gave me a nitro pill and it did not help me. But when they gave me a Protonix it nearly stopped the symptoms immediately. I never had any other symptoms all night but they kept drawing blood every hour and told me the next morning that it was not my heart. But of course GERD can mimic heart attack symptoms. When I went in I was having a panic attack and when they put me on the EKG they freaked out. Lol. They figured I was panicking and I told them straight up, that of course, I was panicking! I felt I was having a heart attack and had to come to the ER that is enough to give anyone a panic attack in itself. Good grief! They had to wait till I calmed down but like I said, it wasn't my heart. I take a Walmart brand of antacid pill every day. Sometimes 2x a day and a antigas pill. If things are going especially *great* I get nauseated with all of this. <Sarcasm> I still eat and drink things that I shouldn't but I suffer no matter what I do. My brother thinks I have gall bladder problems but the symptoms are not exactly like what gallstones are. Also was told I have liver issues so maybe that is it. But I quit taking meds and going to drs. Got fed up. I know that GERD can cause coughing and asthma too. But maybe it could be H Pylori which causes ulcers? I really don't know but I am 48 and have been suffering for years. It really sux and if you find anything to help let me know and I will do the same if I figure out something that helps.

    tonyabrooks306 Hello again yes when it all first started when i would lay down i would get the burning in the back of my throat then i would get sick it kept happening every night so i went to the ER this is where they put me on the reflux meds and sent me home i was fine for a month then it just got worse from there i have had the partial nissen surgery to wrap my stomach around my esophagus to prevent the acid reflux because i also have barrets a condition that could turn to cancer i was unable to take the meds because one i was scared of them i thought this was what messed me up at the time plus two everything i put in my mouth seems to make me worse the surgery was a bit scary as i came out with a black eye and shaking and not able to breath i was still out of it so i remember telling the nurse and she gave me like 4 different meds to get me out of it i thought i was going to die i am not much at staying at hostpitals so after surgery i told em i wanted to go home because i did not want to be all messed up with food or pills as i have been trying to mange what ever this is for 4 years at that time i was told if i did go home i would not get any pain medication for the surgery the good stuff i guess what they were meaning with some arguing the doctor released me the next day after i been up all night and going outside to smoke i never layed in the bed at all the doctor said he never seen someone bounce back like this after surgery i told him this was nothing compared to my kidney surgery i had a few years back to remove my kidney cancer well when the doctor released me he forgot to give me nausea meds and i think it messed up my wrap as i was tring to get sick for 5 hours straight i also could not breath at all i think something he done in the surgery messed with my breathing because when i felt the rip after coughing up some mucus i was able to breath better but boy did i wish i had the pain meds i needed i slept in my truck for 3 days i hurt so bad i had the upper handles up by the headliner so it was easier for me to move myself around but boy it was cold did i say this was in the middle of winter ? lol i mention above that Vitamin D helps all my symptoms as long as i continue to take in large doses 50,000 iu atleast every 2 weeks it took 2 months before it helped me i don't know why or how it does but it does it has gotton me threw the last 4 years it also helps the nausea after i eat i really did not get this symptom till 6 months after the surgery i had but i think it is the Gastroparesis i now have i think caused by the surgery as it is known to cause this but like i said when i first was put on meds before the nightmare started i was feeling nausea and getting sick after eating and lying down i was found to have H Pylori and took the meds for that and it seemed to have helped me with the sickness untill last year after my surgery around when all this started i also thought i had a mini stroke was very scary i thought i was dying i'm so glad that i read other people like your post of other people on the net they helped me and i would never had thought what i was eating or even my tooth paste could be causing or making me worse well it was so i try to help others when i can to let them know that the vitamin d helped and that paying attention what were eating helped for the ones that do not notice the pattern yet i mean i found that some things i ate or drank did not mess with me till the next day like drinking coffee i totally gave it up 4 years ago coffe mad the head and face tension worse and before my surgery and i was not taking reflux meds at the time i notice it gave me bad heart burn the next day i half to admit i have had a few cups over the years when i was doing better i learned to watch my symptoms and know when i can do a no no and eat or drink something that was on my worst offenders list i had in my head but i payed for it for the next 3 days it took that long to get back to what i considered to me is this is the best it gets symptom wise but i got to say if i stayed away certain things and took my high dose vitamin d all my nightmare went away i mean all symptoms but the ear ringing i was so happy but like i said it took 2 months at the high doses to start to work if i stop they come back i have never thought of ending my life but i half to say i could not function at all and it was a nightmare i got to say that it ran threw my head but i would have never done it no body will understand unless you are going threw it too on top of all this i also had cancer and just before lost my dad and both my grand parents of cancer i was driving back and forth out of state taking care of my father and did not know i had cancer myself i was falling down i recently bought my house and had done some foundation work and was running a jack hammer and lifting heavy blocks i thought it was my back as i have always had back problems too well when they done the MRI a good doctor found my cancer when the MRI people missed it i thank him every time i see him the reflux pills made my symptoms worse and if u read the reviews on ask a patient site u can see others going threw the same i had a guy call me from another state from that site and he was telling me he was on the meds for reflux and he was a big time harley guy and one day he told his wife he was going riding he made it half way to his bike and just started crying for no reason i could not help to laugh i know i should not have as i know this nightmare is not funny but could not help myself he laughed with me i think it done him some good too but he told me his story and he said the med caused this for him i guess he stopped it and after awhile it all went away so many on the net have told me that the medical field is corrupt a long with the FDA as they make off every med passed kinda like if u own ur home u got to pay for a permit to upgrade and build and work on ur home same with the med when there passing them i would have never believe any of this till i got sick now i do there people talking about curing there own cancer with diet changes, juicing , vitamins, probiotics ect and people treating there own autoimmune diseases with high dose vitamin d even read a doctor doing this but the med field is not interested in cheap things like vitamins and diet changing or baking soda and molasses at curing cancer or even treating autoimmune diseases they can't make there fortune sorry i call them drug dealers it's what they are also i guess they say acid reflux can get into ur lungs it why it causes the breathing problems and asthma i know this is a long read and i'm sorry but i have not settled for anxiety i just don't see how anxiety can cause 24/7 symptoms for 5 years also don't see how all food can make it worse and certain food cause certain symptoms and if i go with out eating for a day they die down ect if so it seems like the digestive system is causing what they call anxiety but yet i am in a loop i can not get out of will end this for now i hope there some good read in there and helped you in some sort of way

    Hi, and you are doing some serious suffering. Cancer on top of everything else. How horrible. Nothing helps you but a lot of vitamin D. I read up and found out that low vit D can cause stomach problems and that has got me thinking about taking it. I do eat eggs and fish which has the vitamin but I must not be getting enough with my stomach issues. Thanks for that. Yes, I go looking for home cures and look up every site that I can to try to help with the problems. Reading about what you've been through and are still going through is disturbing. I hate that most everything only works a little while and then stops working for you. All I can say is buy lots of bottles of Vitamin D and keep them on hand. When a grown man breaks down and sobs...and being a biker at that...it scares the crap out of me. I probably would have laughed too, it is either laugh or cry and sometimes it is both depending on the circumstances. When I go out to eat and I enjoy the food, I get very tired and feel that drugged feeling. I can't sleep worth a crap though. I agree about drs too, they just want to push drugs on people and that makes them the biggest drug pushers of all. If I can help myself with natural methods, I will. I have read that apple cider vinegar helps stomach problems but I haven't taken it yet. I know that chamomile tea helps if you are not allergic to it. It soothes and calms everything. But what works for one person may not work for another. I wish you luck on feeling better.

    Those side effects are worse than the problem and many doctors will try to tell you to ignore side effects. Not this one. If the side effects are awful, I will not take the drug. Sheesh! Thanks for the link.

    tonyabrooks306 there are people that there problem never left after stopping the med just like me my nightmare started after a month on this medication and a week before or so they even upped my dose and another thing to mention when asked doctors about if it could been the med they told me this is funny even same doctor that did my wrap surgery then when it came to my wrap i asked him why would people do the wrap he said because some people the meds don't help and also some ppl dont want to be on meds all there life he also said because the medication can do brain damage too i was like what the heck every doctor told me it was safe and there was no bad side effects and also that the med could not cause my problem but yet it could damage your brain that's crazy

    The medication can cause brain damage? Oh, that is just peachy! I KNEW IT! the drugs they give to fix problems are just as dangerous as the ailment. Damned if take it, damned if you don't. UGH! I have been taking a Tagamet or Zantac daily for years and on the bottle it says only take this for seven days. LOL! Yeah! It's either heartburn or crushing chest pain choose your poison. Although, I still drink my Coca Cola and that is a no-no. I had a great aunt die from a bleeding ulcer and am worried that I have ulcers too. Then again, heart disease, cancer, mental illness, and stomach problems just run thru my family history. I guess I am doomed to this party for the rest of my life, partly because I refuse to give up foods/drinks that nearly kill me. I am too stubborn and then suffer for it. Not to mention that I go thru other issues that are female in nature due to perimenopause. Joy! Have you tried that site where you list your symptoms to a dr? I bet you have tried everything. Here are a couple more things. Maybe it is IBS on top of GERD?

    Sorry for the late reply with the holiday and all that's what my GI doctor said it could damage your brain and i find it weird that if u go under the reviews so many are having problems and a lot of them nail it down to starting after taking the medication i really do think god put acid in our stomach for a reason and suppressing it will cause problems with digestion ect it helps kill bacteria in food and helps break down food it needed for a enzyme i can't remember the one i have never paid a doctor onlinei did pay to go see a Naturopathy doctor i could tell after the first visit she was just after my money she wanted to bring me in and charge me 175 to tell me test results i could got online for free money to hard to come by to waste i definitely have problems with the bathroom part i don't go for a month when i use to go daily i also have gastroparesis too so my food just sits in my stomach for a long time but i think i got that after surgery

    Hi. I had an attack a few nights back that was no fun at all. Ugh! My husband was telling me yesterday about a man he works with who vomits after everything he eats, but the doctors say there is nothing wrong with him. How can a person puke constantly and drs say they can't find a thing wrong with them? The man has health insurance thru the job and so he can get good doctors. But they can't find a thing wrong with him. My husband suggested it might be the food that is being eaten due to what is being put into the food. My gut goes from being nauseous to feeling like I haven't eaten a bite in a week rather fast. Can't win.

    tonyabrooks306 Hello , yes gastroparesis can cause that and i think h pylori both can make u sick after eating acid reflux can too and your husband is also right sometimes we need to pay attention what we are eating as we have food sensitivities and our body just don't like what we are putting in it also our food today is polluted with all kind of stuff same with me doctors can't seem to help me i am sorry to hear you had a bad attack i wish i could just get some good days some days i can't even think straight or even breath to get up to go to the bathroom without making it half way there then feeling like maybe i should go sit back down because i can't breath and feel like i'm going to pass out remind u i am only 38 a skinny male always been active worked on cars was the type to stay busy now i find it hard to even think straight or get out of bed and move around i just wish i can have my life back i always had faith i would find the answer some where maybe on the net maybe find the right doctor but i'm losing the hope it's been pretty much 5 years of everyday misery i have always just kept pushing forward but i'm just getting tired now i must have been cursed losing both grand parents and my father then my cancer (which they say i'm cancer free now for about 4 years) when my dad passed it was very hard on me i told god take me i was so angry at god i said some hateful things to him well 6 months after i got cancer and what ever been wrong with me ever since i just have no life now it is torture it hard to get others around me to understand what i go threw and they will never understand because it seems i got this thing that doctors don't even know about a long with so many others on the net and we are lost and when i tell family they are quick to say i have that or some kind of answer they have no clue i guess they can't take that someone younger then them is in such bad shape i just wish i could give them 5 minutes in my shoes not alone 5 years i would not wish this on anyone tho it hurts that i can't do the things i use to or want to and always been the type to push myself even after all this started but i am learning not to do it anymore i feel i'm riding a fine line of death when i do i am lost what to do anymore

    I haven't eaten much and am fighting an attack right now with my gut feeling like a trash dump. It awful and at times, I wonder if it isn't cancer. Every negative thought goes through a person's head when they feel sick. I am glad that you are cancer free. One of my husband's aunts is near death right now due to stomach cancer which started with her vomiting a lot. It's just scary and disturbing. Yes, going from working and having a normal life to getting so sick after eating will make you afraid to eat and cause you to starve yourself. Either way, I get sick. Thing is, if I go without food, my blood sugar drops and I start shaking and nearly faint. I know that there are those who think there is nothing wrong with you, but truthfully, they would not want these symptoms. I wish they were in my mind then, I could will it away. I tell you that I am not suicidal or anything, but I can understand those that do take their lives when they are miserably sick. Also, I think God understands your anger and frustration. My grandmother who passed from lung cancer always said, "We never know what we are going to have to suffer through before we pass on." That is the truth. My wish is that someone will finally figure out what this is and do something to help the people who suffer from it.

    I have heard people tell me that if I cut out caffeine, fizzy drinks, and sugar it will help the symptoms. I think I need to try to cut these things again. I had tried before a few times, but the head ache feels like a hammer trying to pry off the top of my skull. But still, I think I would rather have the head pain as to keep suffering this stomach sickness and gasping for breath.

    Well, I haven't eaten anything that should trigger this stuff, but ate a couple of sandwiches with only bread and a slice of turkey and drank water with it. I did this an hour ago and now, I am feeling sick to my stomach. You aren't the only one that doesn't understand what is going on. Back in the 90s my brother had gallstones and he practically had to live on turkey sandwiches because the attacks were so bad. He around 16 and mom finally got him into laposcopic surgery to get them removed and he hasn't had stomach problems since. He thinks I have gallstones. I just don't know.

    I was just researching. I'd almost bet you went into Andropause which is male menopause. Thing is, there are a lot of sites that refuse to add digestive problems into the list of symptoms and for men, doctors are still debating if Andropause actually exists. I would wager that it does and digestive issues are one of the symptoms with that as well. And just like a woman, a man can start this crap in his 30s. Of course a lot of drs refuse to accept that even women are having problems in their 30s because they just look at us and say we are too young to be experiencing that. Such BS! We are not all the same like out of cookie cutters, we are individuals with individual issues. I hope more men come out and let it be known that they suffer from these types of issues just like women do. Problem is, this stuff can go on for years, well into old age. Brain fog, weakness, mood swings, gut problems, numbness and tingly feelings in extremites and even in the head/face. Things you describe are just like what a female can experience in perimenopause. Finding something to really help is the kicker.
