I am new to these forums. I found this site today, really helpful.
It is extremely interesting to read about your experiences with peri/meno!
I confess that I thought I might just scrape through without too many problems. I talked to one lady who had absolutely no symptoms and was fine, to others who all mention hair loss, quite a few.
I am nearing my 52nd birthday, and since turning 50 I have noticed that may hair has just thinned out so much and with it my confidence. It is bad; I just don't recognise myself anymore...
Sunken eyes, dark circles, thin greying hair I look awful and somedays I just feel so weak.
Lately I felt such pain and tighness in front on neck with some swelling and I fear my thyroid may be going awol, if not gone.
My skin is dry and I am cold.
Can anyone relate to these symptoms? Sorry my brain is foggy today hence meadnering post here.
I do feel desperate as hair loss is just something else, when I wash it out it comes in strands and when I try and dry it is eveyrwhere, I get so weary clearing up bathroom afterwards...strange thing is I can't cry about it or get too depressed about it, just seems pointless,but I feel helpless, particulary about tightness and pain around throat area it;s a misery!
I could scream! Does anyone have any ideas? What should I do, GP won't listen and I am fedup of visiting them.
PS. My white cell count is very low and I wonder about this?
Sorry heavy first post I know, but just curious about your similar experiences or any ideas...thank you for reading! (off day today and can't string a sentence together!)
