    Hiya, yes I thought that this morning. In my experience my gp practice seems to not want to talk menopause, they just want you to go away and get on with it . So glad for this forum and others like it as we as least feel we're not going crazy, we're not alone. Hope you have a good day x

      And speaking of "crazy things," this might be a weird question, but I just read that menopause symptoms can include dryness of the eyes, which can lead to conjunctivitis that is hormonal. Have any of you had redness and sharp pains in one or both eyes?

      If your eyes dry out it takes the coating off which makes you feel someone is poking you in the eye with a stick any help???

      Thank you, Carjaz, I was beginning to think it may not be hormonal, because I don't have the classic symptom of pink eye--the itching, but for over a week now I've had redness, tearing and pains, especially when I strain to look at something close up. When you were hospitalized for it, did they diagnose it as hormonal pink eye? The reason I ask is because my opthalmologist really didn't know too much about it until I told her that I looked it up and I seemed to have the symptoms--at the time tied to my menstrual cycle--then she said that that was what it was, after looking it up herself. My eyes are very glassy looking and droopy right now. So the artificial tears really help?

      If you keep using the drops it will improve greatly I use mine thru out the night at times as well so they don't dry out otherwise it feels like I've rubbed glass in my eyes so painfulsad

    Yes it is menopause should be discussed because us ladies need to learn and talk about how we can handle our symptoms we need information out there for the younger ladies too as they get older they will know what to experience with menopauseΒ 

    Its not in our heads its just our hormones being up and down
