    you described be in your post. I have all those symptoms and my anxiety has been so bad it raises BP high too. I'm a very low dose BP medicine now just so i can ease my mind that my BP isn't going to cause me something else. I've lost lots of weight too but not in the healthy way. I take a multivitamin and try to exercise each day. It helps to take my mind of my peri.

    I'm 43 and experiencing the same symptoms and lots of others!

    The headaches/migraines, dizziness and fatigue are the worst. . and hair loss!

    Can I ask if you take anything for your low ferritin? and are the B Complex vits helping?

    I've tried taking Evening Primrose Oil but found it gave me a headache. It's meant to help regulate hormones.

    I've also found that I'm now heat intolerant especially before and during my cycle and I used to love the heat!

    Yes.. my BP is high then I go to Dr and it's fine... So I just do my best and continue on.. But now I'm wandering if my BP is the cause of all my symtoms.. blurry vision, trembles, the DUH feeling, and on and on. I do take maganesium and many of my vitimins have B in them. But maybe I'm not taking enough B.

      No meds yet thank goodness.. My Dr hasn't even seen it high so it's not even an option. I have heard magnesium helps with BP as well as many other things so I just take that.
