    Yes Di, that sounds like perimenopause/ menopause. Are you still menstruating regularly? Do you have other physical symptoms such as dry skin/vagina/eyes, hot flushes? Body aches and pains? Night sweats? Not everyone gets every symptom but it can help to sort out if it actually is hormonal or for example anxiety. Also in theory your FSH would be high on a blood test.

      So did you have perimenopause/menopause symptoms 2 or more years ago ? Are you saying these current symptoms started a year after your actual menopause?
