    HI shana - yep! i have it - i get the burning on the core of my back, nape of my neck, chest, tops of my feet, front of my shins, forearms. i have even felt burning in my stomach. i also have tingling in my fingers/hands & electrical zapping & even a vibrating feeling thruout my body. The difference is, i got these symptoms in post menopause, not peri menopause, but i believe it happens when your body's estrogen is low. i have always been told i was "estrogen dominant" because i carry "extra weight" so maybe thats why i have experienced these symptoms late in this journey. Frankly, dont bother going to anymore drs, unless its someone who specializes in menopause, because most drs will think you are nuts withthese symptoms. Also, my really bad episodes tend to come on at night, when maybe estrogen levels are at their lowest (not sure why). My symptoms tend to taper as day goes on. i have dealt with this for a couple of years, but the last year has been most severe. The other night i had a bolt of electricity zap thru my chest, it literally felt like i had stuck my finger into an electrical outlet, good news it was just a zap, but the burning thing, is altogether irritating. When i didnt know what was causing it it made me so anxious, which i dont think helped the sensation. I am still paying on a $5,000 ER visit (after insurance) from my burning episodes, so I know how crazy this sensation is and the anxiety it causes. i just think our nervous system gets compromised in this whole process, so i try to take really good stress B VITAMINS & do a lot of self care like massages when i can - & I do pray everyday that it goes away & is not a chronic symptom. Be well

    Thank You So Much for your Response!!! I am going to 2 different Neurologists over this!!!! They think its something wrong with the nerves. I have been beside myself!!! I don't react to the cold like I use too. I am able to walk outside with npt getting cold and not bundling up...I am wondering if this happens to other women? All my life freezing to not reacting anymore!!! Its mind boggling!!! I have so many dr. and hospital bills because of this!!! I only way like 113lbs and I am 43 not sure if its a normal time to be having perimenopause symptoms

      hi shana! I am very small too...110 lbs ...41...I swear this is partially why my symptoms are so bad. I do not get burning skin like you. I seem to have developed raynauds last year...the blood vessels in my fingers and feet over react to cold temps...turn white, then bright red and tingly. I supposedly do not have any auto immune issues. So many weird things in peri. Good luck at the neuro. I am seeing a vestibular neuro in a couple days. Fatigue and dizziness 24/7 and migraines. So over all this!
