Hi! I think i am experiencing a hormonal imbalance (or i hope) because i have been feeling horrible for the past 4 months. In april i had a panic attack and was under constant anxiety for a week following the attack. Then in the middle of may my anxiety started over again and has been constant during may, june, july, and now august. I started seeing a therapist in april for my problems and she has been helpful. At the end of June I went to my obgyn because i have been having abdominal pain for about a year and she thinks i have endometriosis because i had an ultra sound and my ovaries looked fine. She wants me to have a laparoscopy to remove the endo, but I am so nervous. Do you think the endo is causing my anxiety and could the surgery help the anxiety? know endometriosis is a cause of a estrogen dominance. My obgyn also put me on Yaz to control the anxiety thinking it may be PMDD. I was on the pill for 3 weeks and it was a living hell. I became so depressed, which i never felt until I started the pill. I decided to stop it at 3 weeks, which was a horrible idea because i think it has messed up my hormones like crazy. I am constantlly fatigued, irritable, have brain fog and dread doing anything. I havn't been able to do anything all summer and I am suppose to go back to school next week and I can't feeling this way! my therapist does not think I have an anxiety disorder and I saw a kineseologist and he said my brain chemistry is perfect so I really fear taking any anti-depressents. He think i have an adrenal problem with my cortisol levels out of wack. He put me on 4 herbs to balance out my adrenal hormones but they have not seemed to be working. Am i too young to be going through a hormonal imbalance? What should I do!?
