It's not all the time but still its there. It feel like my ears a full and now I have slight brain fog. I still get a period but this started after my period so about 3 days now. Any advice? Anyone dealing with this and what have you done to help. Any info would be appreciated it.

    Hi Renee: I had your same symptoms due to peri for a year. Going to a chiro helped me with the neck pain. I can't take HRT. I tried 2 antidepressants and both made me sick. I stopped them and waited but, after 6 months I couldn't shake the symptoms of the dizziness and I was still crying most days. I had to do something. I just started on Lexapro. Within the past 3 days on 5mg I'm much calmer. I haven't had any side effects yet. I take it with food and take it at night. For me it helps me sleep and for some that take it during the day they say it makes them sleepy. Everyone is different so, side effects usually last the first 2 weeks. Some say nausea, headaches, dizziness, confusion but, again I haven't had any of that. They say by week 4 you should start really feeling effects and by the 2nd, 3rd month things should clear. So, just a thought. I've been through this very bad. It hit me severely. I don't like taking meds but, nothing else over the counter, vitamins and herbs. Nothing worked for me. I haven't even hit menopause yet, so I'm staying on this till I'm through with that just in case. Just a suggestion. Lots of videos on you tube for it. I was at the end of my rope and had no hope. I do now. I hope you find something that works and you feel better. Sending you hugs!!!

      Thank you!! This has been on and off with me chronic pressure in my ears sinus infections stiff neck on one side. ughh I've been on Antibiotics and I also don't like taking any pills and can not be on Hey as well. Sometimes it feels better when I'm outside not as dizzy its odd. No nausea thank god! I guess I will have to pay a visit to doctor if it continues just to make sure my ears are ok. I hope we both can get threw this quickly and glad you found something that works for you
