    Hi Laurie, I have experienced some changes regarding stomach but try to eat healthy n regularly n not change my eating habits if I can help it , headaches become more frequent lasting longer, I try to stay calm n relax as much as possibly can n my family understanding the changes I'm going through at times lol.the hot flushes have eased but suffered a lot for 2 years with irregular bleeding n hot flushes thought I was gonna crack up, learning techniques to elevate stress helps a lot and symptoms not as severe! I was also recommended soya isoflavenes via my GP which has helped

    Hi Laurie

    bless you Laurie, all i can tell you about my early peri was ... I felt sick alot and ate little and often, but not as bad as you sound, also had many night sweats .. they are the early signs, i also had three faints in my very early peri, i had almost 21 months very early peri of bleeding, spotting, heavy, nothing, etc, but dont now, i wasnt pale, but maybe you need some blood tests, check your iron level ( maybe abit anaemic )  and B12 ... ask for B12 as they dont do it on full blood tests...

    Yes I have pale skin very dry skin, and my stomach after eating is just to much to bare.

    last night I thought I was going to blow up, my tummy hurt so bad after eating. I also have went from 7 days of full periods to only 4days.

    Headache, dizziness fuzziness. Tingling hands and feet. To panic attacks. Your not alone.

      Yes. I get them. I was worried that I may be having a heart attack or at least heart problems. Tends to be on the right though, and sometimes through to my back, but only when I'm experiencing the bloating too. Eyesight gets worse too. Seriously not a fair deal!

    YES I get chest pains alot.

    it really scares me. You are so not alone. And I also get muscle spazims.

    I seriously feel like I am falling apart. I don't know what has happened to me.

      Julie I am so relieved to hear that someone else is suffering with chest pains, I was beginning to think I was making it up.  I went to my doctors because I thought it might be something to do with my heart or maybe a pulled muscle but she said she thinks it is more likely to be anxiety.  I seem to get a lot of muscle and joint pain and headaches on a daily basis its all driving me a bit crazy.  I hope it will stop soon.  It really helps to know you are not alone though.  Hugs to you hunni x

      You are not alone sweetie. I have quite a few of them and my heart flutter quite a bit. I am trying to keep busy and eating better. So you are not going crazy sweetie. All these aches and pains and everything else that is going on. I hope it all stops real soon for all of us ladies. Hugs to you. .

      Phew. So glad to hear the flutters are part of it too. It's quite alarming when all these things are happening. I keep thinking about going for a medical, but then as soon as I get my period, it all passes for a week or so, and I realise it is just hormonal. Still, it really makes you feel like you are aging at a rate of knots. Scary!
