Good evening I really hope somebody could advise. I'm 46 and have been in peri for about 5 years but no major effects just the odd missed period, heavy period and the discovery of a fibroid. I had some tests done last Dec that confirmed in am in peri and had my last period at the beginning of June this year so this is the first time I have missed 2 periods. About 5 weeks ago I suddenly got hit with a wave of new symptoms such as nausea, sometimes off my food but other times I'm fine, tiredness and fatigue, anxiety and acid reflux and all of the common things that are discussed on here. I've stayed away from coffee and alcohol for last 5 weeks and have been taking taking Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12 and Milk Thistle for the last week and thankfully the nausea has stopped and the tiredness has improved. I went to speak to the nurse on Monday and she tested me to make sure I'm not pregnant and told me off as my urine was very dark. I told her that I thought I had been not drinking enough, in fact at the time of my appointment it was 12pm and I hadn't had anything to drink all day and she said I was dehydrated. She arranged for me to have a full blood count, vitamin D check and also full iron profile as well as my FSH and LH blood tests. I've had the full blood count, Vitamin D and iron profile and all has come back clear however I have noticed that for last few days the whites of my eyes are off colour and very slightly jaundiced. I am now in full blown panic mode !! Would a problem with my liver have shown up in my full blood count? Have I harmed myself by becoming deydrated? Is it perimenopause related or is it something more sinister?? I have arranged an appointment with the doctor for Monday morning to discuss but I am having a real meltdown. The bizarre thing is I have felt great all week, the nausea has stopped and I'm not nearly as tired.
If anyone can help I would really really appreciate it ! Thanks in advance x
