Hi ladies. I'll be 50 in 2 weeks and have never felt so rough. I've had peri symptoms for about 5 years, a few hot flushes a day, about one a night with erratic sleep patterns, irregular periods, the odd bit of nausea etc etc. I've been thinking to myself that it's ok. If it doesn't get any worse, I can cope with it, but for about a month now, the hot flashes are almost constant, day and night. Woke up this morning feeling very nauseous. Went to work and my boss sent me home! That's never happened. I can usually manage, but not today. Trying to give up alcohol completely while going through menopause but it's hard. But whether I drink or not, the hot flushes have become unbearable. I have a docs appointment next Monday and, for the first time, I'm considering asking for HRT. But I don't want to get dependent on it. My friend is 65 and still takes it and every time she tries to stop, she has panic attacks and hot flushes so goes back on it. What are the best types of HRT? Advice appreciated.
