      I also get terrible migraines also I keep reading that people with migraines shouldn't take HRT so I'm confused as to why I have been told to take it, I think I will check again with the doc before I start it! As if childbirth and periods were not enough we have this too lol X

      Yes definatly double check that out as my doctor said a big fat NO to HRT because of the migraines but didn't explain in detail why not or I was not really listening as shocked that we are just supposed to accept all this pain with no help. You're right we get a rough deal allright , for some of us it's agony all the way through. It can be confusing as one doctor says one thing and another something else there is a lot of confusion out there which does not help us with all our terrible debilitating symptoms to deL with on a daily basis. I'm so sorry you suffer migraines aswell, do you take Triptans ? X

    Lou,

    Absolutely. Not only the vision has changed for me during menopause, but also very dry (thin skin on lids and also under eye) as they seem irritated at times. Always wanting to rub them.

    This no fun at all!

    I'm in all different directions.

    Lord help me and all these sweet ladies on this site!

    Yes definitely. I have always worn glasses since I was 2 years old. I had corrective surgery to my left eye when I was 11years old. I had a stray left eye so they had to tighten the muscle. My right has always been strong. But since peri it has gotten weaker and my left eye, forget about it! It's worse now than it has ever been. If it wasn't for prescription glasses I wouldn't be able to see clearly at all out of the left eye. I'm farsighted in my right eye and nearsighted in my left. A weird combo!

    I am short sighted and have worn glasses for most of my life. My perscription for distance has actually got better over the last few years. But When I hit 40 I started to need glasses for reading. It has got so bad that, for any detailed artwork I do I have three pairs of glasses, each stronger than the last. I look a bit like thiseek
