    Hello,

    ​yesterday I was on 3 day of my monthly period and I had an intense headache on my forehead. I have noticed that the same is happening every month the same day. Thus, I suppose that at this time my estrogen are at the lowest level..and  at this time I am also experiencing a kind of pain like needles inside my uterus...

    Generally speaking all of my peri symptoms seem to have cyclical nature and they are consistent with my monthly cycle ( period, ovulation, PMDD)

    hi

    i've had this whilst having periods and now i haven't had one for 3 months and my foggy brain and weird headaches are making me anxious too.  I feel like I'm having a period, I have all the usual twinges that would normally happen but I never really suffered with menstrual problems before this,..  i've had so many different views on Hrt that even that makes me anxious now, so still struggling on without.  I have the prescriptions.  Just haven't felt confident enough to take the leap. smile but going on like this is just not working for me anymore, it's tiresome.  main reason is I want to feel better but scared of feeling worse.  I need help too  we all do    so I understand your frustration

    Eliaimee,

    Yes, I get this type of headache frequently. It’s very bizarre.  It’s like an electric shock out of nowhere. It happens in my head most often, but at times I might get the same shock feeling in my legs, muscles, belly, etc.  it can be very scary. I never experienced this before I was in peri.  It’s frustrating because I never know when it’s going to come on. I talked to my doc about it and she said it’s related to hormone fluctuations. I’m 47 and have been in peri about 5 years. I am trying to drink more water, eat healthy (I’m on a GF/DF diet per my doc), take walks when I can.  I also take adrenal supplements and magnesium.  

    I’m sorry you are feeling this way, but please know you’re not alone!  Hugs—Sarah

      Yes I’m a water drinker now for 5 years and I was like my head on one section top right and switch to the back and like a zap and even on my mouth got my HR above 101. I was like omg don’t make me faint . I’m not sure if this part of my period or what? I’m gonna see a therapist because I can’t take anymore of all this symptoms. You guys are all nice and make my life so easy.

    You describe it as a zap...I call it a knife to head.

    Happens right before or in the first day of my period.

    Yes, a lot of women in perimenopause experience both  headaches and electrical shocks in the body.  It’s all due to the fluctuating hormones.  I know both natural USP progesterone cream and magnesium glycinate have both helped.
