Help! I have much more than hot flashes in menopause

Posted , 8 users are following.

Hi I a reaching out to see if anyone has the same symptoms as me. Over the last few months I have woke up with very sore joints, dizziness, i have hot flashes through out day and night. My eyes get very dry, I have ringing in my ears, very bad headaches, anxiety, and feel depressed and emotional. Also I get bloated and can only eat small amounts at a time because of feeling so full. I feel like I am dying and my mother never went through this. Also I have not had a cycle in over a year so I'm assuming this is menopause. I feel awful complaining to my husband I don't think he realizes how bad I feel. I cannot handle this. I struggle getting through work.

    Hi Karen... If you have not had a period in over a year.  You are post menopause.  Also, you mentioned BCP in your last discussion...probably not an option...HRT if post meno is usually an option depending on your health.  Have you gone to an obgyn?  How old are you?  You definitely dound estrogen deficient...which is highly likely at post menopause...

      Hi, I just turned 50. I am a little hesitant about Hrt I hear good and bad things about it. I try to be positive and eat well but my symtoms make me feel that I can't cope anymore. The hard part is I used to be athletic just over a year ago and now I feel I have no muscle strength .If I do anything physical I pay for it next day.

    This sounds is much like me!! Scared and miserable most of the time, which just makes it even worse! Saw several doctors and finally it was me that said to a doctor, well could this be menopause? Now looking for a doctor that is more in the know than my current one. Would love to feel better again. But please know, YOU ARE NOT ALONE!!! Hang in there!

      Thank you makes me feel a bit better knowing I'm not imagining this. I don't like telling my family I just feel like they dont want to hear me complaining. Today was a bad day for me and i felt very alone. Glad I have this forum. If there is anything you try that works please let me know. I hope you have a better day tomorrow.

    I can’t express how Grateful I am to have found you all. I also have so many weird symptoms that used to make me very anxious like I was going over the edge… And don’t get me wrong there are times I still feel like that but being able to talk to people on here makes it so much better. My family would think I was absolutely insane if I told them every single complaint, emotion,ache, pain and feeling I had each day. Hang In there and know that you’re not alone. Reach out anytime❤️
