For ladies in meno

Posted , 8 users are following.

when you were getting closer to meno did your symptoms seem to get worse with each cycle the closer you got? since may things has just been so bad and unbearable ive notice the past three cycles they are way lighter then they have been in a few years i was having very heavy periods seems lighter they are becoming the worse the symptoms is getting. i started yesterday and symptoms is off the charts then usual my whole body is def being put through hell twitching,jitters,palps, insomnia has gotten worse always hot and cold and the off balance dizziness is unreal. my eyes and mouth is so dry nothing seems to relieve it i drink plenty of water i drink so much water im constantly pee'in. i get numbness tingling it seems only when im on my cycle weird. and every morning when i wake up before getting out of bed i take a bad heat wave makes me nauseous its horrible. i hope this is coming to an end cause i dont know how much worse i can take of all this.

    Hi Pamela,

    I anxiously await the replies, as I am in the same boat. Hardly spotting with each " period" but all other symptoms are x100 now. Since June for me, and really bad since July. Thank you for posting what I was thinking, and hugs to you.

      ive been going through this for 9 years and counting hit me at 34 i just turned 43 yesterday no end in sight with all this misery like tonight im laying here hot as crap and tired not much sleep these days, my poor hubby freezes to death at night as i keep the air conditioner blasting on high in my room and im still hot. if i would sweat like some ladies do i wouldn't stay hot constantly its torment. i dont want to scare you but i won't lie this perimenopause is straight up kick your a** drop you to your knees and keep kicking you while your down over and over. well thats how its been for me no symptom that ive dealt with from the beginning til now has been easy or mild. it straight up put it on me and just keeps giving no breaks, ive begged and pleaded and prayed and prayed no relief ever comes. i done started trying to prepare my girls i tell them prepare for the absolute worst and pray for the best. cause this time of life is like that the quote Tom Hanks says in Forrest Gump " momma always says life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what your gonna get" and boy do i believe that.

    oh honey, i hear you . I've had no periods now for about 3 months. My eyes are si dry,I have to think of something sad just to moisten them. At night I sweat snd 5 minites later Im freezing my ass off. I'm exhausted but after an hour of sleep I'm wide awake stating st my damn ceiling. I've googled heart palpitations cause i feel like I'm dying and , according to google, Imight be. I get dizzy and nauseaus for no apparent reason. my tits deflated and are falling, I could use my skin as crepe paper . im getting knee wrinkles, didn't think that was possible. And i could use my under eye bags as luggage. The joys of menopause are too many.

    I am now three months with no period, and my symptoms have definitely changed, but are still brutal. I now am in "rage mode", where I literally want to smash things and tell people to "f*** right off". It feels totally out of control. Thankfully, these times are interspersed with feeling "normal":)

    It is a crazy ride!

    We should all marvel at our awesomeness in being able to get through the days!! Women rock!
