    i have had bad heart palpitations during 2015 and half of 2016, no let up.  I know it is awful but you have to tell yourself it is hormones if they have ruled out everything else.  if you look at my previous posts you will see what i went through with all of this especially the palpitations.  thankfully they have become less frequent.  I have just started sage supplement for menopause and I feel it is helping.  you might want to try something, I am sure they may have offered you hrt because of your age.?  hope this helps you.

      try not to worry about it emma, this time of life throws up all sorts of stuff for us to worry about.  the worst part about all of this is that is it so necessary to have them test for everything, which can be so distressing. But if you, like me, were fairly healthy before this hit and like me had no real health fears, it is all just hormones gone wild.  It's a pity though, that all the symptoms seem to imitate more serious health issues, but it is always best to get it all checked and then decide what to do for yourself to make you feel better and improve quality of life.  It's hard, but try not to worry.  hope this helps you.

    Hi Emma, I'm a few months off 35 and I think I may be in peri at the moment-although my hormone blood tests don't confirm it yet. I've had a lot of symptoms within the last year and 8 months. All my symptoms started within 2 months of coming off birth control pills. Anxiety and depression have by far been the worst symptoms. I wish you the best with this. I've been offered anti-depressants and birth control.

      Hiya, my symptoms rolled me in when I stopped to feed my girl from August and September just killed me. I didn't know what to check and where to start. My GPson thought I was mad, mixing all symptoms like that.

      Hi Natalia,

      I just seen your response to Emma and I just wanted to say that I too had he sinus problems, hot sweat followed by chills and inflamed throats and lump in throat....I couldn't eat solids it was so bad. It's eased off now but I notice I get inflamed throats when my period is due. I've put it down to hormone fluctuations!!! It's awful.

      Hi Deirdre, I've just had the last appointment with ENT and luckily I am absolutely fine. I haven't even inflammed adenoids ?. So he tald me that even GYM can start sinus problems something to do with adrenaline and our hormones can cause it 100%.

      When I had my throat. ...I've done so many tests I wonder now my GP doesn't want to see me.😕

      Natalia I've worn out my welcome at my gp's office too sad we can't be the only women turning up at their doors constantly-I mean i live in a big town so I can't be the only woman going through the change!! I'm hoping that's what this is anyway. I've had every test going so I'm only left with peri which is what I suspected from the start.... it's a shame that it doesn't show in tests in early stages. sad

      Well, you do your tests. Because I have eaten 2 courses of antibiotics and they didn't work! Do you believe? ! That's why eventually 😕 only now I know why. I thought I was misdiagnosed I felt awful and then that Burning Mouth Syndrome. .. only yesterday I caught myself that I am free from it. Need to come back to my list and let the girls know.

      Very supportive forum my love to all of you.

      Blessings
