    white blood cells can be up due to infection or inflammation in the body, or simply a bruise or injury, mine have been just over before for no reason so i wouldnt stress about that too much, have you had your b12 , iron and thyroid tested ,these can cause palpitations?

    Hi - I had my bloods done last week and got exactly the same as you low folic acid and vitamin d and the doctor put me on 3 months of tablets for both then they will take bloods again to see if improved. I have been having quite a few wierd symptoms which I think it is menopause related - low folic acid and vit d must be to do with our hormones I am 45 this year so probably about the right time for it to start 😦

      just to add i had symptoms same age as u but not as bad as i have now

      i asked dr for hormones to test

      but they look normal but i know hormones change daily

      so blood tests will never tell us

      wonder if these lack of vits are to do with the dreaded change

      i was thinking bout hrt

      been watching louise newson on youtube (mrnopause dr she is brilluant ) xxx

      would like to stay in touch as having all this is pretty lonely and scary xxx

      the doctor said to me wouldnt do hormone check as still having periods so wouldnt show anything but definitely think this is perimenopause. i have sore breasts mainly in one though. eyesight blurry past few months which they say is a cause of menopause. sometimes my scalp tender. periods one month heavy one month light. sometimes teary at the least bit thing. also have bad anxiety and palps but the new symptom this week is leg twitches. honestly i am fed up already and only had past few months if i have to have years of this going to go round the twist 😦 xx

    yep same

    one breast really tender and lumpy

    and i get like twitches too that wake me

    i also wake 3am without fail or 4 am heart racing and doom feeling

    really hate all this

    my life is pretty crappy and feel my anxiety is progressing

    re fsh results

    dr did them as i was constanly moaning at them saying " i dont want anti deppresants " i know wat u mean bout blood work as hormones change dauly i was told but drs so anti hrt

    yet they are safe now

    drs are going by the old hrt the ones made from mares urine

    we need the bio identical ones and the gel or patch as these are safe

    but drs not trained tbh

    we need like private clinics with experienced menopause drs that know and understand our symptoms not just think we are nutteres and imagining our issues and so they give out anti depressants as all they do is read the list off there computer

    its awful

    i feel soo lost tbh

    and scared xxx

    Thank you

    i know there are so many ladies like us and suffering too

    its just madness how hormones can make us feel so many different issues which has made my health anxiety worse

    i left my job because of this as my periods were everywhere and was dizzy and just couldnt function at work but the other staff even though were ladies didnt understand which i find hard

    but i guess some woman breeze through it and have never experienced anxiety or fear !

    i find everyday there is a different symptom to worry bout and focus on it

    has your gp offered you anything

    My GP is pretty useless really more or less been told get on with it. They said to take the folic acid and vitamin D and will see me after 3 months for more bloods and thats it - I used to be on antidepressants years ago so I don't want to go back on them again so just taking each day at a time. Have started taking evening primrose oil with B12 in as well to help - so hoping that over the next few weeks feel a bit better if I get the right vitamins although woke up this morning and back of my head feels tender again - it freaks you out as I always think its something worse but all these symptoms I am getting are on the 66 perimenopause symptoms I found on here - thankful I found this forum site as my docs were telling me nothing just "yeah it might be menopause!" its scary when you dont know what is happening to your body....

      but good news though my smear came bck fine, wat a relief

      this anxiety is the worst hate it

      oh was gunna say that you mrntioned u are taking primrose oil and b12

      maybe i should try that as well but thought the folic acid was part of b12

      on my blood results it says b12/folate and says its low

      but was given folic acid ! isnt folic acid in the same grp as b12 ?
