Peri menopause symptoms

Posted , 4 users are following.

I’m 46 and started peri menopause when I was 43. I has a hysterectomy when I was 26.

My earlier symptoms were many, but the main ones were constant nausea and headaches.

Now I have terrible pain and stiffening in the back of my neck and the pain runs up the side of my head, this symptom comes and goes. I also have terrible pain in my legs, it feels muscular.

Can anyone else relate to these symptoms.

    Hi Karla,

    I'm new to these discussions, I can relate the light headaches and nausea and a wealth of emotional symptoms but no aches and pains yet .

    I'm 46 too. 

    I'm sure someone can help xxx

    Hey Carla, I experience headaches, light headedness and occasionally nausea. But boy I do experience leg cramps and my neck muscles tighten up on both side but not at the same time. It also affects my arm. My legs cramp on and off. They have been for the past two years. I am only 41 but I have recently started sweating at night so I am starting to wonder if all these symptoms might be a part of perimenopause. I thought I'm too young but maybe not?
