I am two years post menopause and have recently felt abit unsteady once when getting up and the other couple of times while I was standing. My blood pressure is OK I wondered if anyone else had experienced this.

    Pincatfai, this can be due to an inner ear problem. If it is, it can last anywhere from a few days to months. But then I have had a handful of patients during my 18 yr carrier dealing with post-menopausal females who have had similar symptoms and going on Bio-identical hormones seemed tp take care of it. I would give it a bit of time to see if it gets better in a few days. If not, have your ears checked and if all well, you may want to try HRT, assuming that you are otherwise healthy

    Hi, I too have been dealing with the unsteadiness. I thought it may be an inner ear problem,my Dr. sent me to a dizziness clinic. Now from reading these posts I'm really thinking this is yet another symptom of menopause. I was thrown into menopause after having a hysterectomy in my early 40's, I'm now just 3 days away from 50. With everything from Anxiety, the odd hot flashing, emotional ups and downs to now dizziness I will be so happy when these symptoms start to minimize. Sometimes I really feel like I'm losing my mind. Thankfully I found these discussions and this helps to make me feel like I'm not alone in this!!
