I am wondering how you you knew that you were in the perimenopause stage?
I am 45 in 2 weeks. My problems started over 2 years ago. Mostly light dizzy spells especially in shops. I did have a seizure and the only thing they found was low ferratin due to heavy periods. At this point I was probably also suffering from achy legs and nausea which was mostly in the morning.
The dizzy spells have got much worse and are now constant. A few people started to mention the menopause to me and at first I disregarded it. However the last 6 months or so my monthly cycles have changed - much closer together - usually about 23/24 days and then an odd cycle at 29 days. My periods are heavy and last from a day to a week.
i have tried to monitor my symptoms and they do change over the month but I can't see a clear pattern
I have started to take a herbal menopuase supplement, evening primrose oil, b6, b12 and d vitamins. Sure the achy legs are much better and the nausea reduced. No change to my dizziness.
Finally the last 2 months I have dreadful anxiety, scared to go anywhere alone?
Does this sound like the beginning of the menopause? Has anyone taken at HRT at this stage? I am happy to take anything to help.
Appreciate any advise
