    Hi Debi,

    Sorry to hear you are having these issues. I get this too. For me it seems to come and go and I'm convinced it has to do with fluctuations in hormone levels. Having had a hysterectomy last November with ovaries left in, I still get these fluctuations but don't have my periods to kind of let me know where in my cycle I am. (They had been very irregular before hysterectomy).

    I will have several days of headache, mostly behind eyes and down back of my head. I'll also feel what I call "slightly out of focus", shaky, spacey and just plain out of sorts. This goes away and then will come back days or weeks later.

    I try to take a vitamin supplement and added B12. I also take magnesium supplement. This seems to help a bit with my hot flushes at night and helps a bit with the anxious feeling. Now that may be more of a psychological effect for me....but it does help.

    It's a rollercoaster ride, this menopause journey...I hope you feel better soon??

    It's all hormone related I'm afraid

    No harm in having checks to put your mind at rest

    Yes Debi, common peri/meno symptom. I still get this sometimes for a few hours at a time, but it has lessened considerably since I started hrt. I try to just relax & be still, sit or lie down, watch a film & give it as little attention as possible until it passes. xx
