    It could be lots of things like thyroid or anemia rather than peri or menopause unless you've already been told that's what it is. I'd go to Dr and ask for hormone and thyroid and fbc blood test to put mind at rest. Good luck.

      Agree with this advice.  So many times when we get to be of "that age" we write it off to hormones.  You can certainly feel bad, but you need to rule everything else out first.  Because many people go through menopause with hot flashes, sweats, emotions, etc, but they still feel okay.  

      I've said it before on this board about three times now--the worst I ever felt in my life (even after have a thyroid gland removed) was when my iron was low.  I felt awful.  And it doesn't have to be full blown anemia either.

    Sounds like you could be hypothyroid...see your doc and ask for your bloods to be checked. I was diagnosed a year ago after going to see doc because I was tired and couldnt lose weight. Now on tablets and the tiredness is no more, but continue to gain weight. Good luck. X

    I get great sleep, wake up like a zombie and barely have the energy to keep myself awake and anxiety out the roof. I'm 54 and started having noticable symptoms at the end of last year like hot flashes and nightsweats but when this depression and anxiety hit, wow, just wow! My daughter has depression and when she looked at me laying on the couch for four hours after getting up she informed me that that is what depression is. I'm on HRT but still trying to find balance. Have had thyroid checked and it's perfect even though my mom and sister have thyroid issues. Went to my daughters pshychiatrist and he put me on Celexa. Have only been on it for two weeks but have seen what it's done for my daughter so am hopeful. Today, for the first time in about a month, I actually have some desire and energy to do something besides lay on the couch! I don't understand why more women do not talk about the debilitating depression that hormones can throw at you. Yes, I need help with that until my hormones find the right balance. Good grief!

    Hi Michelle,

    I am going with what these ladies say, too.

    Also, too many Doctors fob us off with the all-encompassing "It's you age" thing, so insist you are checked for these other things before writing it off as Meno. I know meno does make some feel tired, but this sounds more like a low iron count. Let us know how you get on. x
