    Hi Maria76995 - Ok, this is so weird, this just happened to me....I was sitting in the show and after a 2 hour movie (not a hot theatre) I got up to leave and felt really woozy and my vision also felt off.  I have been post menopausal for 5 years and yet my symptoms seem to be ramping up big time.  I also get tingling/electric shock in my extremities, flushing and migraine like headaches.  Four months ago I came off of a bad B/P RX (still on one) but I experienced these symptoms when I was on both B/P RX’s, so I am fairly certain these are all wacky side effects of menopause.  I asked my Naturopath how long does this last and she said that she is treating woman into their 70’s!!! I am 60 and have been going thru this for about 31/2 years, but it’s definitely getting worse...I hope the end to this is near.

      Hi Wannabenormal - I have the exact same thing with the left eye,  blurry vision,  migrainey head,  woozy & nauseas.  So last night after this episode I got bad pains in what only can be described as my ovaries.  I haven’t had this sensation in over 5 years when I was PMS & my monthly curse was about to start.  I had to get up out of a Dead sleep & take an Advil. Why now?  I almost thought my period was going to start again today.  Ok, i am so over this!!!  Has anyone else experienced this after such a long break from actually having their period?

      Hi Maria76995 - prior to losing my dreaded curse, the only real symptoms I had was the what I referred to as “hemorrhaging” towards the end of losing my period.  It got so bad for me that I literally couldn’t leave the house while on my monthly.  So, I suppose I am experiencing all the wretched symptoms on the other side of Menopause.  I know that my Mother suffered horribly from Menopause & I am my Mother’s Daughter for sure.  I have also managed to not take anything thruout this whole journey outside of vitamins etc.  I did just get put on an herbal remedy from the Naturopath that has black cohosh, Dong qui, bitter fennel, wild yam, dandelion and other stuff.  I have only been on this for less than a month so haven’t really reaped the benefits if there are any.  I was also instructed to avoid sugar & flour which basically leaves you eating veggies & lean protein.  Boring! I am trying to find the joy, but everyday there seems to be something new to contend with...my husband thinks I am turning into a hypochondriac, but there are days where I just feel so “out of body” it frightens me.  I pray everyday that this will come to a screaming end , because I have a hard time functioning and enjoying life -

      I know that hypochondriac feeling, but there are so many horrible new things going on you are bound to wonder and worry. None of this peri stuff feels normal for me. I pray for the symptoms to end too. X

    I've had an episode of this earlier today.  Dizziness and hot flush, severe nausea and a feeling of just needing to get sat down fast before I fall down.

    I also get migraines and blurred vision in my left eye.
