    Hi Lori. Sounds like your in "perimenopause" since you still get periods. Menopause is when you haven't had a period for a year. Perimenopause has so many symptoms! ugh. I'm going through many of the same ones you are- the sinus pain is debilitating for me. Can't work when I have one. Makes me cry. It takes all day to get rid of with hot showers and pain killers. There's a post in this forum that lists over 60 symptoms of perimenopause you might like to read. You sure aren't alone!

      I am not sure what you call mine. I had a hysterectomy 10 years ago but still have my ovaries. I turned 50 in July and it was like I immediately started to change in so many ways. I can't regulate my body temp, it's hot flashes then I'll get cold, headaches all the time, mood changes, anxiety, memory issues, less patience in crowds, even my hair went from having body & curl to flat and straight. My FSH is 159 & lutenisizing

      is 76. I'm confused & worried I may have pituitary tumor. Drs tried me on hormone replacement but side effects were bad. Any advice or sound familiar ?

      i just thought i was having allergies, but it is dry sinus? I am plugged up all day, but as soon as I go to bed, sit back to read a bit, they drain and become dry and painful almost every night.I remodied it by cotton swabbing some cocnut oil up my nose. It worked. at the time I never thought it was peri.  who knew!

    oh lorie this could so be me up until 12 months ago apart from my anxiety and chest problems in the winter i have always been healthy blocked sinuses, colds , pains in joints and just extreme fatigue just to name a couple and yesterday i broke down and cried. i know that's selfish because there are some really poorly people out there but i live with pain every day (i have broken vertebrae in my  back) and when you get these stupid little symptoms the heart palps and shortness of breath it is so fustrating as i have always up until i broke my bones two years ago been fit and on the go. maybe its showing me how i used to take my health for granted. I am so sorry i am having a bad day today and i dont mean to moan i should give my self a kick up the bum but yes i am going through what you are flower they say it gets better so i cling on to that hope x

    I'.m the same. 43 about March my periods have started playing up. Stopted feeding my girl at the end of July. Still periods playing up, went to the GP, blood test fine, hormons are fine. He said stress! Well, I don't know what to think. Then end of August bad infection has started my sinus, bad sore throat, neck, shoulders, ears....2 cources of antibiotics and oral thrush-lovely and it's already Novemver...constantly something wrong. Don't know what to do and what? Go back to GP and againg start talking about my irreguler periods.

    Very Frustrated!

    Hi Lorie. It sounds like you have had some recent stressful events. I can tell you that when I go through something like that my hormones go haywire. As a matter of fact, I think that is what started my peri in the first place. I mean I knew it would come eventually, but I think the stressful episode got it going.
