    When I was getting regular periods like clockwork my ob/gyn tested my hormone levels because the only symptom I was having was digestive - I was struggling with stomach pain, gastritis and some nausea. Nothing else. No hot flashes, no night sweats, no aches/pains, etc. I was 46 at the time.

    When my test results came back he turned to me and said I was in menopause. I was in disbelief. I said how can that be I am still getting a period regularly and I am ovulating. He told me that my levels were menopausal levels so my body had already begun "the change".

    I don't know if that helps or not but what it proves to me is that sometimes our blood work and our symptoms don't go hand in hand. Everyone is different and subtle fluctuations may affect some women more than others.
