More Perimenopause symptoms???

Posted , 5 users are following.


Does anyone suffer with an itchy scalp and sore eyes?  I'm not sure if these are perimenopause related but just recently alongside all the more common symptoms, both have been quite intense. 

I was convinced I had headlice at first, but I've checked and double checked and can find nothing, and yet my head is constantly itchy and it drives me crazy. Its getting embarrassing keep scratching my head all the time!!! 

Also in the last 2 weeks I've noticed my eyes have felt so sore. I can only liken it to when I was younger and everybody smoked, if you spent an evening in a smoky pub, you would go home with sore eyes from the smoke. They feel like this almost everyday! 

Does anyone else have these issues? Are these more symptoms of this lovely chapter of my life??

    Hi... I too get the itchy eyes!

    I'm guessing it must be down to the lovely perimenopause 😀

    Yes, an itchy scalp was one of my first unusual symptoms.  I thought it was lice too!  Luckily I mentioned it to my mother at the time, and she said my grandmother had that symptom. It's so strange.  I got an anti-itch shampoo at walgreens that helped me.  It comes and goes; not too extreme. Hope yours gets better. As for the eyes, I don't have that.  Best of luck and stay strong.
