Hi, I'm in my early 40s and haven't yet officially been diagnosed with peri menopause, but I've been wondering if it can cause severe nausea and dizzyness as your periods become more irregular?
My period is two weeks late, and in the early hours of monday morning when I got up to go to the loo I felt very dizzy, and when I got back in bed I suddenly started shaking and felt hot for several minutes. Later on when I woke up, I vomited and couldn't tolerate sitting up or standing so had to go back to bed as I felt fine lying down.
I was sick again a few hours later when I tried to get up, and I didn't feel like eating so went back to bed again.
Early tuesday evening and I've been in bed for two days and not eaten a thing until now (I'm forcing down a slice of toast) and the nausea seems to have gone but i still have to stand up slowly or I still feel a little dizzy.
Something similar happened last year when my period was a month late, but the feelings only lasted a few hours and there was no vomiting.
So, is this kind of thing common when you are approaching the menopause?
Oh, and there is no way I'm pregnant as im not sexually active.
