    I am wondering why I'm not getting all the posts to the menopause/perimenopause forum as I used to. I do post to it myself. I thought that hardly anyone was posting anymore, but I can see from the discussions here that lots of people are. All the posts and replies normally appear in my own email. Can this be rectified please, as I do find the forum very supportive.

    Emis Moderator can you please tell me if premenopause and menopausal symptoms include itching all over the body to where I am bruising myself and also if very heavy mentstral periods are a part of this. I am also getting goose bumps but not feeling cold. wil diabetes intensify these symptoms especially the itching? I have been in and out PCP, dermatologist, podiatrist and they say it's either allergies, dust mites, dermatitis or diabetes. Nobody has told me it is menopause. How does a doctor test for this? A blood test?

      Hello TDT. I hope you don't mind me responding to your post. You asked about a blood test to determine if you are menopausal. If you are in the UK the updated NICE Guidelines state doctors shouldn't perform a blood test but to be guided by a woman's symptoms.
