    hi debi - do you notice any kind of a acne like breakout or broken blood vessels on your face? Reason why i am asking is, its very common for women in peri/menopause to develop Rosacea. When i would get outbreaks, it always seemed to come with a bit of a headache & i suffered miserably with hot flushing/flashes - i now get more heat rushes in my back/neck area but when this curse first hit me, my face would go beat red & i would get a outbreak - keep a diary what you eat & see if certain foods trigger your "hot flash" For me, triggers are spicy food, alcohol, sugary foods, emotional stress & some hot foods -

      oh glad to hear someone else mention the broken blood vessels on face. I have always taken really good care of my skin and never wore foundation but I need to now or I have to spend the day explaining to everyone why my face is so red. But then you just sweat the makeup off and have to explain anyway....

    Yep.. that dull headache here!! It could be due to the air pressure because the last week the weather has been goofy--looks like rain but it doesn't. Now it's humid.. I think I really need to move cuz these headaches are bad!! Then had an extremely busy/stressful weekend which can bring it on with the weather. I'm on day 2 so I hope tomorrow I'm good to go.

    Debi,

    I can't relate to the flushes, but I can to the headaches. I get what you described almost every day. I can also relate to feeling alone. I am having a good cry because I am so tired of experiencing one symptom after another. How much is one person supposed to take? Anyway, I hear you.

    yes I have those daily headaches, it's horrible. It feels like a numb dull pain, more like a tension headache. It also comes with ear pressure and weird head pressure like a heavy head feeling. I am so sick of all this, peri hellvis just too much to handle. I have two young kids, thank God they're in summer camp because withball my symptoms I certainly can't do anything fun with them, breaks my heart. I just had a good cry, I'm
