Hi I'm 42 & been having a terrible time over the last 2-3 years. Periods had been really heavy (then to nothing for the last 12-months) & persistent incredible fatigue, but the real problems started in Aug 15 with persistent incredible migraines, GP wouldn't listen that I thought I was in menopause & to be fair my FSH was only slightly raised at 12 (18-months ago), saw neurologist who prescribed Topiramate for the migraines & referred to London specialist for chronic fatigue syndrome. Everything just got worse & worse & moods were awful, but I'd had good weeks then really bad, back & forth to GP & after lots of pushing they finally agreed to do my FSH & LH bloods again & guess what? Yep they were in 80 & 25, prescribed antidepressants (?) which I didn't take, another trip back to GP, repeat bloods (to make sure I WAS in menopause) & yet again they were raised this time 84 & 28.
GP has prescribed Premique 0.625mg/5mg tablets but with no discussion, I knew I wanted to start continuous combined HRT but wasn't given any options on brands/choice/dosage - has anyone had any experiences with this HRT or any side effects? All my other bloods are normal so it's not linked to any other conditions & looks like definitely menopause. My tiredness, insomnia, flushes & night sweats are ruining my life at the moment - I need relief & want to know if this HRT is going to help as I can't go through another few months of 'trying' something to see if it helps.
