      Yes I also have developed TMJ and constant jaw and tooth pain. I always ground my teeth and have a nightguard but since peri way worse. I think also the health issues are adding to my stress and being alone still at 47. I feel like 40 is the new 80. Why the hell am I falling apart at this age? My mother and aunt claim they were fine and my mother didn't even go through menopause until her 50s. Is there some reason it is worse for my generation? We prob have more stress, ridiculous cost of living, no pensions or retirement, crazy student loan debt and raised on foods full of hormones and preservatives. Im feeling pretty hopeless if it's not one thing it's another. Giant fibroid, tooth pain, crazy bad PTSD, and the panic of being so old and still single with student loan debt and no retirement and not working in a lucrative industry and in a market where companies just want to hire you contract. And wanting so bad to own a home.

      Thanks Christina. Got back from dentist and thinks it is a mild cold sore. WTF????? I have NEVER had a cold sore in my mouth in my life. I feel disgusting. I did read that peri and menopause hormones make viral outbreaks worse/more likely. I'VE HAD IT!!! I WANT A CURE! I'm 47 not 87. I'm not sure I'll make it to 87. And I have no husband, kids, retirement nothing. I AT LEAST need my health and sanity. Every day it's new pain mental or physical. I can't even take a normal birth control pill because of my fibroid and even when I was on one, it didn't stop my progesterone from nose-diving so I had terrible sleep issues. But when I tried to take more progesterone I gained a ton of weight still struggling really hard to lose and fibroid grew. My daily diet is one large green salad with tuna, protein shake and a handful of almond crackers. WTF? Plus walking when don't feel exhausted and stressed. Sorry but I've had it. If I had a loving husband and family it would prob all be less stressfull and depressing. And then I heard of woman who are like "menopause? I never had any symptoms". If peri is this bad, what will menopause be for me?????
