Posted , 8 users are following.

I knew something wasnt right about eight months ago didnt feel right at all but couldnt explain what it actually was, i thought i had fibromyalgia because i ached everywhere, i couldnt keep my eyes open i was so tired all the time,, i explained to the Dr and she said she didnt want to diagnose me with this she thought it was more perimenopause i wasnt conviced, anyway had numerous test's thyroid, ecg, heart scan because of palpitations, iron test, hormone, inflammation test for arthritis. All came back ok except my ferritin level was low given iron tablets that made me feel a little better after a few months. My periods were always normal like clockwork every 28 days bleed heavy for 3 out of the seven days. Last two months light periods which i have never had, this month i have bled for 21 days some light bleeding then flooding and clots its just about stopped now had another hormone test about a month ago and it was normal then the weird cycle happened sorry for the essay but do you think this is now the perimenapause ?????

    I think it could be a start of peri menopause the tiredness, the palpitations. You did not mention how old are you. With how you feel it could be the start or peri. 

    My advice to you is this do not stress your self out thats what i have been doing and i am in menopause i am 46 going to be 47 next month. Stress in menopause makes it hard to deal with the symptoms 

    Try relaxation yoga and do not think about your symptoms all the time because thats what i have been doing and that causes more stress on the body 

    just hang in there the symptoms will go away evenually

      You well feel it alright I think i have the full blown menopause because i have palpitations that won't go away. I have been in and out of the ER having EKGS not heart problems i wore a heart monitor for two weeks showed normal signs that the heart is fine also they did that test where the heart is on the computer and they listen to the heart beat and look at the heart that came out fine. The full blown menopause is the worse because i have a lot of anxieties depression been stressed out just wish these palpitations would let up don't know what to do about them they cause me more stress just feeling them i try telling myself that everything is fine with my heart but its hard to do when the palpitations are everyday at every minute just want to crysad
