A few months ago I started getting night sweats so went to the doctor and she took bloods for different checks including hormones. She mentioned the start of menopause but as I'm 42 she said it was a bit early. Anyway all bloods came back fine and the night sweats stopped.
Since then though my periods have been all over the place. My cycle is usually 26 days but it has been 19 then 11 and now I'm a week late! I'm not getting really achy mucles/joints. My wrists and elbows are the worst, a dull achy pain which ends up feeling like a dead arm and my ankles are aching but not as much. I'm also getting very stiff legs and knees, especially in the morning or when sitting watching TV, my left hip is sore everytime I stand up.
Basically I'm falling apart!
Can it be perimenopause even if bloods came back normal?
