    Hi shelley

    imtake evening primrose and also vitamin e capsules, it does help me as I have all those symptoms too, but I do get the odd week were I'm free from any symptoms.  I get bad reflux and I take omeprazole, I also take domperidone, not routine though, just when I get the gastric and bloating. I also get bad breast pains, a sharp burning pain in my breasts. I don't go to doctors anymore as everytime I go there they send me home saying it's nothing wrong with me. I am in peri for 5 yrs now, I'm 49, my periods are every 3 wks. Sometimes heavy. 

    Nowadays I just take it easy and enjoy the days that I'm symptoms free as when I get all those symptoms I feel so miserable and get irritated with my families....oh well, but i found the supplements help me a little. Try and eat very light meals too, snack on nuts and dried fruits when you Feel hungry. Some days I don't really feel like eating, I snack on fruits . Cornflakes. Simple stuff. It helps with the reflux and bloating too.

    Hi Shelly have you checked your iron levels with the doc, particularly your FERRITIN level?   It is your store house for iron so even when the haemaglobin level is fairly good this may be low and can cause AWFUL headaches.  I take sumatriptan for my migraines and it has really saved me life but you probably know about this one.

    If it could be you are low in iron try taking molasses - H&B do the one I use. It was bril for me as it did not upset me delicate digestion.  Try one teaspoon in orange juice to start with and see how you go.

    All the best luvy.

      Hi Allyk, 

      my iron was low, my doctor did the full blood works and as a result my iron was extremly low and put on to Ferrous sulphate tablets on the highest dose, 200mg daily 3x a day, feeling so muche better that was for 6 months which lapsed and another 6 months of the same medication 3x 200mg a day.

      but I noticed 3 weeks ago I was getting a real bad sore throat, then following day stiff neck then that triggered a headache?. This since the 3weeks had been on and off( the neck at one point: I couldn't tilt my head back that lasted a day) 

        I'm also suffering with what can only b described as feeling very low to, soooo bloody miserable, again anyone RECCOMEND anything for this other off the doctor?.

      bloody hormones.........carnt tolerate very much either got a very short fuse as well!!!!!!!!!!!!!.

      shelly,  take Omega 3.  A good one.  This helped with the stiff neck thing for me.  Take it everyday.   The one I am taking is Flax Oil.  This is all I took, along with Vitamin D3 and from time to time Vitamin C, when I felt I needed it.  No harm in taking a vit D3 supplement anyway, even though your doctor said its normal.  I asked my doctor this and he said it can be taken long term.  I find it lifts mood so well.
