Perimenopausal problems

Posted , 5 users are following.

My sister is in Menopause now.  I am 49 and at the perimenopause stage.  I have been having periods that were very heavy but now are simply spotting with blood clots due to fibroids.  My question is, has anyone experienced this lasting the whole month??   I am tired all the time.  Like a child I need my naps during the day. 

?I also have been having trouble sleeping.   My legs feel like the nerves are tingling but it also hurts.  Does anyone else have this problem?  I take an acetaminophen PM tablet and an acetaminophen 500 mg. tablet before bed and this used to get me through the night but lately I wake up half way through the night with this leg problem.  Is there a solution??

    Hi Lori...maybe it is restless leg syndrome. Google ut...it is common in women our age evidently.

    As far as the rest....i am 49 too and periods are regular but different every month. Just had a heavy clotty one and i feel really weak and anxious and teary. Last month it was painful but light and emotions were ok. Its like a rollercoaster.

      HI, Mabel,  Like you I've also killed my husband off many times in my head too .  My anger usually centers around the week right before my period.  I've been trying to laugh instead of saying mean things.  Sometimes it works and sometimes...it doesn't.

      I've been very emotional lately and cry at the lttlest of things The other night I caught myself crying over America's Got Talent and how wonderful, great, brave and gifted those people are.  And it's a fun show, not at all sad.

      I think I'm going crazy too.  I leave things out on the counter, not even thinking to put them away, like milk, mayonaise, and ice cream.  And I was forgetful enough before this perimenopause  started.
