Hi, I have read this forum with great interest. So many helpful posts. My problem is I don't know if I am in Peri or not. I am 47 in 4 weeks time. About 2 to 3 years ago, I had a phase of hot flushes which lasted for about a year (maybe 1 or 2 a month), then they stopped and I seemed fine, then about a year ago I had real anxious feeling and feelings of doom, and felt like I was a bit crazy. That stopped and then I had a few months of mood swings, one minute feeling fine, next minute really irritable. That seems to have stopped now. Over the last two months, I wake up feeling like I have been hit by a truck overnight. Hurts to put weight on my feet when I get out of bed, but these aches and pains get better once I am up and moving around. When I sit down to watch tv after dinner the aching comes back. I am also having heart palpitations and heartburn and reflux, sometimes feeling like food has not cleared my throat and gone into my stomach, which can only be relieved by sicking it back up (litterally only a very small amount) then it is relieved, but I have near constant tingling feeling down throat and a dry throat. Caffeine really makes this worse, so no coffee for me!
So my question is, when in peri, do symptoms tend to come and then go, to be replaced by other different symptoms? Do all my symptoms sound peri?
Periods are heavier and approx 5 - 6 days long, over the last 2 years and some have been a a few days late, but more recently they are a few days early, my last 4 periods have only been 25 days. ~I started my periods at 16 and had always been a regular 28 day cycle on the dot with light bleeding for 2 - 3 days! I have a doc appointment but earliest I could get is 2nd week on November!
