having the worse premenopausal symptoms!

User Profile
I am having the worse premenopausal symptoms. Pain in arms, especially left side, into breast bone, neck, headaches, tingling in fingers and numbness in face. It drives me crazy and since I have lyme disease, it makes it worse. Many ekg's, blood test, exrays, all normal. I do get dehydrated a lot and ended up in er in March thought it was a heart attack, but severe dehydration, two bottles of fluids in an hour. My question is, help, what can I do to make this better? I am taking herbs, I am a horse trainer so very active. I am also having anxiety attacks since this and when I was supposed to have my period, usually the first of the month, it is really bad. I am starting to get massages again so maybe that will help, but I need some answers. I am tired of feeling this way, getting worse the last 6 months but comes and goes.

Welcome to ehealthforum,
If the symptoms are affecting your daily life and activities, do not ignore them. Visit your doctor/gynecologist for further examination and evaluation to look for the underlying cause and rule out hormonal imbalances. If hormones are deranged getting started on HRT should help. Look out for development of any other new symptoms. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
Take care.
