Perimenopause numbiness and feeling faint

Edited , 4 users are following.

hi ladies

Do any of you have moments or days where you feel like collapsing? I feel so fatigue and light headed. Also my legs feel like jelly and hand numbness. I need to sit down and rest!

    unfortunately most days, i have to lean against something or sit down. Its really scares me when im at work.

    i don't experience the numb hands like you and really heard that symptom with peri or menopause before.

    i assume this is all part of the menopause.

    hope things get better for you Sandeepo, sending you a comforting hug x

    thanks for your email. I feel better as I'm going for bloods again as I'm getting nausea like pregnancy morning sickness.

    Keep positive and here's to menopause. Are you taking anything to manage your symptoms?

    exactly like me! I finally had an endoscopy as ive had acid reflux, bloating and trapped wind for the last two years. It was all clear. In the last month I've now got nausea! hence my DR sending me for tests. I've also had two breast appointment as I found two armpit lumps as I have pain all clear. The breast consultant said do not go on HRT? Due to breast cancer not sure because I've got a fibroderma.

    I need something as I'm going loopy!

      if theres family history of breast cancer then no to hrt, but youve got as much risk of breast cancer if you smoke, drink daily or are overweight, at the end of the day its quality of life thats important & i cannot continue to feel so ill day after day so will give it a good try. ive totally lost the old me & want her back

    no family history. I've been really thinking about HRT as you are spot on just want the old me back! I've got a long overdue gin & tonic waiting for me.

    I will speaking to my dr next week and might go on a low dosage to start with the gel. Which HRT are you on? I've always had heavy periods but now they are even heavier! Not sure if HRT will help with that problem as ive had all scans and all clear too.

    My iron is so low and I've been on iron tablets for the last 5 years too.

    hey

    how are you? had my blood results back and all fine apart from FSH were high and I'm in perimenopause. Dr said my nausea and headaches are due to hormones, my posture due to laptop. No answer on my dizziness apart from check blood pressure! which is fine every time I go for my acupuncture. I'm getting used to feeling unsteady! Such a horrid time in my life.

      my docs wont do bloods for peri go by symptoms, apparently in peri hormones fluctuate hourly/daily so you dont get an accurate result? (in england) felt okay last few days still feel rough but try & push through, then today totally floored nausea, headache, dizzy, buzzing legs, exhausted, anxious horrible day! sometimes its hard but keeping busy stops you dwelling on it but its very consuming!

    that was me yesterday! I feel like I'm in dead body! How can peri make you feel like this! its not normal. Yes hormones flucutate all the time and when I went to get my bloods I done I felt worse for wear and it came up on the bloods. My Dr did not mention HRT so weird. There is such a lack of help for us. I may now go privately and go to Dr Louise Newson. I'm getting desperate and cont live like this. Everyday is like a ticking time bomb! We never know what day we are going to have.

      odd if doc has confirmed peri they havent mentioned hrt? replacing the hormones is the only thing that will make us feel better, if the patches im on dont help my doc said she would put me on something stronger, heard fab things about dr newson got to worth it for quality of life. im existing at the moment not living x
