    Yes you are in peri but it can go on for a while. You describe me exactly. One minute I'm sweating and sitting by a fan and a few minutes later I'm bundled up in a blanket! And I'm POST menopause.

      god i was thinking im mad i was having vitamins and  starflower then a friend said have you checked the because i cant have soya because of thyroid issues and most vitamins have soya in them ( tocopherol ) so i changed all vits to non soya ones and this heat and cold started um i think the soya was helping to keep the heat at bay what do you think

    Yes, I get this. One night I slept with a beanie on and gloves and the heater. It seems to get into the bones. I read somewhere that this is not that uncommon.
