    Yes, what is happening is that we are finding that there are way too many doctors out there that are clueless!! They do all of their tests and tell us everything is normal! NO, nothing about what we are going through is NORMAL! They want to just put us all on antidepressants, anti anxiety drugs and then send us off to therapy because they think we're all nuts! And for a while, I thought I might just be until I found this forum. Thank God for this forum! We are not crazy, these symptoms are real! I have totally given up in western medicine regarding this problem as we will get nowhere with them. Homeopathy and better nutrition is what has helped me for the past 3 years. If you can find one near you, you may find some answers.. Good luck and God bless you!

      You are preaching to the choir there sister!

      Wendy - go back to your doctor and ask, no, TELL him you want a 'full bloods', the works. Then get a print-out of the results. You can see for yourself then.

      I found it very helpful. Though my doc was more concerned that my potassium level was 'raised' (by .1 - hardly life-threatening!) and my Cholesterol was raised too. Got a lecture about low fat diets 'blah, blah'.rolleyes

    These doctors need to have their license revoked! Why are they going around telling people that they are not in peri or in menopause when clearly that is the case. I had the same thing happen to me. It's infuriating! They are quick to say that it's not menopause but can't seem to tell you what it is! Makes no sense at all!

    I think we all know in ourselves when we are entering peri/meno I didnt go to a doctor to get hormone tested because I knew in myself I was going through the change and it sounds like you are too xx

    Hi Wen. this happens all too often - clueless doctors. Phone your surgery & ask them if they have a gp or nurse that specialises in meno/well woman issues & make an appt to see them instead of your regular gp. many surgeries have them nowadays. xx

    Talk to your M.D. and get bloodwork to rule other conditions first

    Wendy,

       Oneof the biggest errors that our physicians make is to not explain to woman that their bodies are entering a period of transition. This transition is full of fluxuations for our entire endoocrine system.  All hormones effect one another.  Unfortunately these changes are very difficult to spot in bloodwork at times, and it is impossible for a doctor to see what is actually happening within the cells throughout the body.  This is part of the reason my doctors tell us that bloodwork isn't necessary.  It often doesn't tell them much.  

    Apparently, you are at that age where you have eggs that are producing in an irratic way.   This is what is causing the symptoms you describe.  If you get a chance, look up a chart of what  ovarian hormones look like when this transition begins.  They are all over the place, up, down and sidways.  

    At this point in time, one of the best things you can do is everything possible to be good to your body.  Lots of clean water, sleep, some exercise, whole foods and a good vitamin.  Anything you can do to calm your mind is also helpful.  

    I know this doesn't sound like much, but it's the best I can offer for woman in perimenopause.  None of this is pleasant, but it is very common.

      That is so true blood test don't show we in peri menopause cause they fluctuate so much during this time..... I heard for the best reading you need to have blood test on 2nd day of your period..... otherwise we need to go according to our symptoms a woman just knows that something is going on in our body trust your instinct..... its a tough time ....

      The VA and my civilian gyn both told me I was in peri based on Testing and I never told the VA about any symtoms. They called me after the tests came back to inform me of this

    You need to see a gynecologist, not a gp. Find a gynecologist who will tell you you're in perimenopausal and then you won't be so confused. Btw, how old are you?

      Birth control helps with minimizing the cyst. If that birth control pill didn't agree with you why didn't you go back to your doctor and get a different one? There are so many out there. How did you almost get a stroke? If anything you are perimenopause but your statement of almost got a stroke make no sense.

      Oh dear, so I guess there's nothing you can do. All the symptoms you're describing and feeling are from peri-menopause.  Maybe try a multivitamin, primrose oil, vitamin c, vitamin d3 and magnesium. These should help some.
