I already feel like a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders after finding this forum.
I would say (without realising it ) I have been peri menopausal for around 8 years, the thing i find hardest to deal with is the soaking wet bedding from the night sweats.
I too suffer with anxiety, irrational reactions to perfectly reasonable discussions from my fiancee and children.
I have decided to change my lifestyle, although I am only small and i do tend to eat well, there a loads of other things I could eat instead, i have decided to limit alcohol to only special occasions as this magnifies the whole situation especially the week before my cycle is due.
I thought I had a serious illness, I have aches and pains everywhere my bones click ALOT! and i have a headache daily. I can relate to everything I have read here today, and I feel truly relieved to find women in the same boat.
on my lunch hour I visited Holland and Barrett and she suggested Sage Extract called Menoforce especially for night sweats and also Evening Primrose Oil with B6.
has anyone else tried these, well lets see what happens I think it takes a couple of weeks to see results if youre one of the lucky ones. Fingers crossed and hugs to you all x
