Menopausal Women Suffering From Low Mood & Depression – How CJA Balance Can Help
One of the main side effects many menopausal women suffer from is low mood or depression. A general low mood can include feeling sad, anxious or panicky, worried, tired, frustrated or angry. A low mood usually lifts after a few days or weeks but if you continue to feel low, the doctor at CJA Balance may be able to help.
Your first step is to find out whether you are menopausal. This can be done by carrying out a simple blood test from CJA Balance. Once your results are back from the lab, we can discuss what can be done to improve the way you are feeling. This might include offering HRT (hormone replacement therapy) or TRT (testosterone replacement therapy for women) or suggesting life changes such as improving your sleeping patterns, diet and exercising.
You may be suffering from depression if your low mood lasts for more than two weeks and you feel hopeless, tired, lacking energy and as if life no longer gives you any enjoyment. Other effects may include sleeping more than usual, or being unable to sleep, comfort eating or losing your appetite, or even having suicidal thoughts or thinking about self harming.
If you are experiencing any of these feelings, please seek help. The highly trained and experienced doctors at CJA Balance can offer advice, help and support to improve the way you feel.
