    Hi Jane sorry you are feeling this way it is hard ,I have been peri for 4 years was doing ok till may last year had stomach problems, low back pain feeling sick and anxious headache was just feeling rubbish all the time had to take time off work

    Then I took a urine sample in to the doctors as I started going to the loo a lot and had a UTI it is so hard to know if it is to do with been perimenopausal or you are just ill, still not feeling that good been given different HRT hoping they will help .

    Hope you start to feel better soon

    Take care

    I'm sorry to tell you I have been like that for 5 years, since my hysterectomy. It's a blooming long virus! Hormones affect every part of your body I'm afraid.

    Hi Jane

    I think you've been unlucky and have caught a virus. I've had cough and sore throat since middle of December. I stopped HRT meds at Christmas as I didn't like the heavy periods. I then felt so unwell I visited the GP on NY day to be told I had a chest and throat infection. Took antibiotics for 7 days and slept 12 hours at night. Still no better. Doc said now nasal infection which was viral. Now day 11. First day I have woken before 10am and don't feel tired! Fingers crossed its leaving my system.

    Hi, ,so sorry to hear it. I have been going through the same except for diarrhoea. It is been a nightmare. I feel blocked and coughing badly (and peeing as I caugh) I think du to perimenapause our body is weak and can't shake it off easily. My daughter who is 9 years old had it first. She was up withing 3 days. But it has been 10 days for me and still suffering. Get better soon. X
