BLOODY HEY FEVER! what else??

Posted , 9 users are following.

cry help, as if I haven;t had every other symtom that the peri/menopause has to offer I have now developed allergies.......

truly miserable, especially as my job is so full on caring for people. I really don't have time for this in my life, my eyes water and sting, nose running and headaches.

I can't wear my makeup so I have piggy swollen eyes eek I'm so fed up. It was only whilst reading an article about pollen and other allergens I noticed that it could be related to the change.

Is anyone out there suffering and ANY SUGGESTIONS are welcome confused

                Mrs M about to ingest more antihystamine before my gruelling shift tommorrow

    Hello there, oh what joy the menopause is, NOT! ! Lol. If we don't laugh sometimes we'll cry. I have noticed with me I have itchy skin and I sneeze a lot. There is so many symptoms I think, symptoms you wouldn't necessarily associate with it. I have so many pains. I have recently given up my contracted hours as I'm so often not fit enough to work now, something I can't really afford to do but I don't have the energy to be in a job on my feet anymore 😕. Hope you get through tomorrow OK it's not easy x

      It's so frustrating, what next???

      I'm finding it difficult working with all this going on, insomnia, itchy skin. aching, back mostly and gross weight gain.................................

      Before the start of the change I hiked 3 times a week FOR 3 HOURS

      I can't afford not to work and although I still enjoy my job I get so tired, it's ridiculous

      I have a little cat and hope I don't become allergic to her, I am so sorry about your dog allergy, 

                                    Take it easy hun

      Do you ever feel like you wish something would show up in your blood tests just so they could give you something. I have had recent blood tests for my all over pains and cramping in my toes and feet and everything was normal. I live on painkillers at minute which I don't like, it doesn't even help me really either. My gp just said you could have 3 more years of this yet. Not what I needed to hear 😕

    There may not actually be a significant blood test yet? to identify the effects of menopause, I don't think the condition is being treated as serious enough. 

    But we know it's just awful cry

    Remember not all women suffer from these effects and that makes it more difficult to be taken seriously

    We have to hang on in there, WE KNOW IT'S REAL wink

      Hi there I know just how you are feeling I thought mine was hayfever especially to tree pollen I thought it was clearing  up but oh no it's worse than ever my ears are blocked sinuses hurt and my head feels like it's under water. I also feel dizzy and lightheaded but I suppose that's because I'm all blocked up. This doesn't help my anxiety levels at all. Just fed up all the time ohh and forgot to mention for all I'm am quite fit do plenty of walking and not over weight I feel like a 90 year old when I get out of bed with aches sometimes I have started to get cramp in my legs ohh the joys ha ha.

    Dear MrsMerm,

    Yes i too get the watery eyes, i have a little tip which might work (it seems to work for me) i seem to get this first thing in the morning so i put some make up remover (eye) on a cotton pad and put on my eyes and let sit on lashes and rub them a little, it seems to take away the worse of it, it might not work for everyone but it does me. I have the tears streaming down face normally! As for un clogging sinuses i read this tip of putting, well pressing finger between eyebrows in the middle while pushing tongueup on to roof of mouth, it is suppose help drain the sinus, i'm working on that one to see if it helps, will try anything when desperate!

    Hi there,

    I am 49 years old and just starting to experience all the wondeful signs of peri-menapause. I have never had an allergy in my life, and have always been a pet owner. OMG what the heck is going on? In the last year I have had terrible allergies(seasonal...hayfever, seezing, sinuses driving me nuts!) This has been bearable only because I take medication to help relieve the symptoms, but then I have to combat the drowsyness you get with the medication. I do work full time so this can be a big problem. It does make yu feel "sick" thought. Its hard on yur body fighting off allergies. Best of luck to you. Tip: waterproof mascara!

      yes B, currently taking antibiotics and have picked up more antihistamine stuff today, it's miserable isn't it hun. I am postive that the peri-meno can develop these allergies in some women and would welcome some advice from a (gynologically lead) documentary  portraying real women who also suffer like this, and showing the dire effects the change can have on the lives of some females.

      NOBODY SEEMS INTERESTED rolleyes
