    Hi Laura, hugs to you, im 41 and in the same boat, just has the worst couple of months, night sweats, mood swings, nausea, blurred vision, dizziness, and brain completely scrambled...it’s awful isn’t it? Are you still having periods? My last few have been completely irratic so am hoping to go on hrt on Monday. I think you just have to be kind to yourself, take time off, excercise and know that this period is hopefully short lived. I’m trying to eat well, and have a bubble bath every night and read and keep busy during the day to distract myself, I’ll let you know what my doctor says on Monday x

      THanks LIsa, means soooo much to hear from women going through this, none of my friends really understand - looks like I’m the guinea pig! I seems to get symptoms on my period and the week after, and also sometimes in the week around ovulating as well, so basiacally anytime where the hormones drop, I’m actually always great the week before my period! At the moment I feel like I have symptoms for most of the month and I just feel awful- very much like early pregnancy, but I’m definitely not pregnant! So im opting for hormones espicially as I’m still young, see absolutely no reason not to, hope you feel better x

      I'm the same. Most of my worse symptoms being between my period and ovulation. Please keep me posted as to your hormones and how they work for you. I'm at the same stage you are...just trying to figure out if there is any way for relief! Thanks for responding.

      Thanks Lisa it’s good to know I’m not the only one that gets post rather than pre menstrual tension - have you been experiencing nausea as well? I wake up wanting to wretch and I keep forgetting what I was doing - tends to ease of a bit during the day, though when it lifts I feel fine for a week or 2, so I just keep thinking hang in there, keep calm carry on, do some excercise and chat to the lovely ladies on the forum and you will get through x

      Hi Vicky, I think I’m at the same stage as you - just had a very light period that only lasted 3 days, so hoping it’s the beginning of the end! Though I’m feeling worse than ever - have you got nausea? I get it constantly during my period and the week after, and then I get relief from it for about 10 days before it comes back again. I had blood test done and all my hormones were in the low end of the range, except fsh which was higher so hopefully that will be enough to justify hrt, I would recommend that you do that and analyse the results yourself based on where they should be at the time in the cycle as doctors only really know how to diagnose post menopause x

      Amanda, if you are prescribed omeprazole for the belching etc, please read the side effects. There's a forum on this site.  Long story, but I was similar to you, told it was gastritis and then the omeprazole led me to this site. Hope it settles for you soon x
