Feeling bit fed up

Posted , 3 users are following.

Just been told I'm menopausal and feel like I don't know what to do....if that makes sense. I asked my GP if I should be taking an different vitamins etc but not really. Still having regular periods every 27-29 days so guess its at the beginning of menopause?! Just feel a bit lost even though I had guessed I might have started the menopause. Any ideas to help me think positive? Thank you

    Hi Tracky, i can understand your feeling of being a bit lost. I would suggest that your best bet would be to look after yourself as much as possible: eat good healthy food, take exercise and get plenty of sleep. That will give you the best start possible. Hope all goes well. Xx

    Thank you :-) I've had a few people who have said eat healthily exercise etc is the key so will try. I'm having terrible cravings for biscuits and chocolate which GP said is very normal. I also have a itchy scalp?! Again normal I'm told, the symptom list must be endless!

    I get itchy scalp too. And really itchy legs. I'm sure the diet and exercise can only do good. It certainly won't hurt. Good luck. Let us know how you get on.xx
