Anyone Else?

I feel horrible today. I keep getting a chill that sweeps over me, then I feel really hot like I have a fever and my tummy feels a little upset. Feels like I could be coming down with the flu or something. It's disturbing.

Has anyone else expierenced this?

    Last year I was getting chills all the time and felt like I had the flu, I went to the dr, repeatedly and they said I was fine, finally they told me it was menopausal and drink hot fluids, and turn up the heat, it did not really help but the chills have FINALLY gone away, it was horrible, but it lasted for about a year/.

    Hi Jamie,

    Yes I still get chills throughout my body.  Even when its warm outside, I cannot seem to get warm unless I sit in the sun for awhile.  Comes and goes, never know when it will happen.

    I lost count of how many times I told my GP I felt either as if I was just coming down with or just getting over the flu.

    I also got a really bad cold once when I was feeling like that. We all had it my daughter carried on working, my husband had the sniffles and cough.

    I just couldn't sit still pacing and in and out of the house.

    I had to see a nurse for something unrelated and I had a really high temperature, as soon as I took some paracetamol (I don't take them lightly) the pacing stopped until 3 and half hours later as they were wearing off and continued night and day for 2 days.

    I'm sure it made me that awful because I was already feeling like that a few days before. Normally a cold doesn't bother me too much.

      Thanks,

      Mines seem to be the worst around that time as well. I have noticed so many changes since this peri stuff. I must have been in it 3 years already but the symptoms are worse now. I hope that means I'm closer to full meno cause this stuff is horrible. I hope my daughters don't have to go through this.

    yes I get it a lot, its caused by one of two things, chronic fatigue, or, an inflammation somewhere in your body,  thats causing you to dehydrate making you feel ill, by any chance do you feel thirsty? or, very fatigued? or, have you been getting electric shock type feelings at all in your body, or head?

      Believe it or not, I haven't felt any of that. I think I may have only had that ill feeling one time before. I did notice today though that now my nose is running and was stopped up most of the day.

    then it must just be the way menopause is affecting you then, if you havent got those symptoms, chronic fatigue, comes with flu feelings, you can even get  a sore throat with it, making you think you have a virus, yu dont, its because the fatigue causes neurological symptoms, the brain fog, memory probs, electrical feelings, jerking as you fall asleep, all part of severe fatigue, knocks yor body clock out, and alters your sleep rythms, there is nothing wrong with our heads, if they gave you a scan it would show everything to be normal, its a temporary effect due to hormones.
