      Firstly, you are not menopausal if you are still having regular periods. Medical people say that you have had to have stopped your periods for at least a year. However, because of your age (I am also 48), you could be at the beginnings of what's known as peri menopausal. This is a time when your homones go nuts basically. Remember being a teenager when your hormones kicked in? So yes, this could be what's happening to you. Check out google, 35 most common symptoms of menopause and you'll be surprised at how much you can be affected by hormones. I hope that you're not in for too rough a ride, but remember, there are so many of us here that are already going through it, and we can help. You're not alone. Hope this has been of some help x

    Hi there,

    There is a forum on here that, believe it or not, discusses 66 symptoms of Perimenopause. Oh joy! You are a good age to be in Perimenopause. Hope it's mild for you. Xoxo

      This link only lists 49 symptoms, but somewhere she provides the remainder. I just don't remember where. If you hunt around you'll find it. If I do, I'll post it.

      51. Facial Pallor alternating with Facial Flushes is often intermittent with hot flashes.

      52. Flare up of Arthritis worsens with low progesterone levels and increase sugar intake.

      53. Loss of Bone Density, Osteoporosis, is not only an elderly woman?s disease, though it seems to develop over an extended period and is triggered by the decline of hormone production.

      54. Dry Hair, Change in Skin Tone, Integrity, and Texture, becomes more wrinkled, and may begin the thinning process.

      55. Changes in your Fingernails characterized by easy breakage, bending, cracking and getting softer.

      56. Itchy, Crawly Skin with a strange sensation like insects crawling around under the skin ? quite different than the dry skin feeling.

      57. Muscle tone seems to slack and sag, and loose its previous response to normal exercise.

      58. Pelvic Pain can be random and independent of cycles and may feel continuous for some women.

      59. Dry, Itchy Eyes felt in the deep posterior aspect of the eye socket, as well as superficially.

      64. Tingling in Extremities not only feels weird and like your hands or feet are falling asleep, but if persistent can be a symptom of diabetes, B12, potassium or calcium deficiency, or a compromise in blood vessel flexibility.

      65. Sensation of Electrical Stimulation,or Shock occurring in the tissue under the skin, and may signal you that a hot flash will begin.

      66. Increase and worsening of Allergies occurs as hormones become imbalanced, so can our immune system.

      Hi Marli310, thanks  for your answers to Jyll0204. They have given me so much encouragement as I am going through a very tough period in my life too. I have  a very painful back , bloating and pains in my joints which tend to be severe afew days before and after my periods. Has anyone experienced  a kind of trembling in  the upper stomach? This makes me so worried despite having undergone so many  tests which show all is fine.

       I would be glad to know if anyone else has this feeling.

      Hi Flo,

      I'm glad that list helped to put your mind at ease. I'm 54, haven't had a period for 80 days, went as long as 5 months last year...so still peri. I've had symptoms starting in my early forties, lighter, shorter periods, sensitive, etc. Nothing too major. BUT... when I turned 52...oh brother. I started out with a painful lower back most mornings for a few months, thought it was the mattress. It eventually eased up, but I was going through a very stressful time and honestly, I think not only was it hormonally related, buy I think adrenal related too. I get itchy on and off in various places. What so bothers me and it's almost 2 years now is my knees. The muscles/ligaments/tendons hurt and are tight. I'm trying to force myself now to exercise more. That seems to help. I've read ALOT of women's stories who are in peri on many, many different forums and I seem to recall various stomach issues with what you are describing. Here's hoping we all get to a better place soon!
