Perimenpoause symptoms?

Posted , 7 users are following.

I'm going to see my gp tomorrow as I think I am going through early  perimenpoause. I have many symptoms including back pain which I had many years ago which has recently started hurting over recent months (around the same time I was getting other perimenpoause symptoms) I have also started to experience pains in my knees and wrist which I have never had before. Could this be a part of early menopause? I have many symptoms but don't want to bombard the gp when I go in but I want to make sure I tell her everything which I feel is connected. Thank you.

      Thanks Lou, I'm so so pleased I come across this forum. It is a godsend! I didn't wanna sit and babble at the gp with random symptoms which have nothing to do with peri. I've been waiting for this appointment so I can hopefully get some answers x

      Hi Girls

      I agree this forum is a god send , it actually feels like your going mad.... Who knew it's just peri menopausal symptoms or menopause! I have recommended to some many suffering women, it just helps to know we aren't alone .

    Hi Ashley it sounds very familiar, I just recovered from the worst back ache I've ever had amongst other aches and pains, ask them for the blood test that will confirm if your starting perimeno, my mum started early and completely stopped having periods at 42 good luck x
