Is manic a symptom of peri?

Posted , 9 users are following.

Ive asked many questions and my list of symptoms is never ending but has anyone literally felt manic before and after a period or if you were going to get a period but didnt. Like legit exhausted but you want to run 5 miles, uncontrollable thoughts racing nonstop in your head, random past memories popping up in your head, crying spells, anger. Anyone?

    I really do not get a regular period anymore, just spotting once in awhile. But i can relate to the uncontrollable thoughts, crying, anger.

    This to me, comes with anxiety and depression, and is the worst of any of the symptoms of perimenopause.

    Earlier on in perimenopause I used to get those symptoms before my period, and then shortly after getting my period, I would get relief. In the last year or so, everything is totally unpredictable. I never know how I am going to feel from second to second, but I have felt everything that you have mentioned (crying, rage, memories flashing back out of nowhere, total desperation, hopelessness...)

    These symptoms are absolutely horrendous to deal with. I am just hoping that the end is near.

    You are not manic; it's perimenopause!!
