Dizziness from menopause

Edited , 12 users are following.

Hi lovely ladies,

i know i have asked this a couple of times before but i want to have some assurance that I am not alone. Has anyone been having dizziness or floaty kind of feeling almost everyday during menopause? i went to the neurologist & he didn't think anything wrong with my brain. I am on oestrogel gel for the past 5 months but it doesn't seem to make me feel better. This is driving me nuts. i can't concentrate on work or anything for the matter of fact. It is making me so so miserable. Any advice on remedy will be much appreciated.

    Hi Irene, I was just about to ask this same question, but decided to read the latest one! I guess I am not alone either. I have had spells of dizziness - don't know whether to call them a spell or not. The dizziness is usually for split second and I feel kind of spaced out (don't know what else to call it...).

    I am experiencing this again after a few months, and now as before is not a good feeling and Dr. Google does not give any useful tips.

    I hope anyone can give any tips how to deal with it. It is scary at times.

    Hello Irene. Yes normally I get this dizziness right before my period and sometimes after. It is horrible. A little spacey a little off balance. Lack of concentration. Sometimes it gives me anxiety which makes it so much worse. I have no remedy for you but I sleep with humidifier I also have bad sinuses. Steam showers help. I still try to move around although I feel wonky lol. And rest do something relaxing that you enjoy. I am on day 14 with no period in site for this month ugh. So I am having crazy symptoms. Be kind to yourself hopefully will be through to the other side soon.

    Hi Irene

    I suffer with vertigo too. When i had my first attack i had no idea what was happening and was terrified. I was happy just to know it had a name. I saw a neurologist too because of that and also tingling but all clear.

    As my husband had taken me to a & e with the vertigo they prescribed Prochlorperazine and when i have a bad turn i take one and it works really quickly .

    I don't know about you but it's not just being dizzy - really difficult to describe to someone who hasn't experienced it!

    Keep hydrated - I drink 1 1/5 litres of water a day anyway so not a problem for me.

    I also try not to move from one position to another to quickly or get up too fast - hard, I know!

    I'm three years post meno and getting more symptoms now than i ever have.

    Hope you can get some relief.
