    HI sharcerv52408

    Yes I get these sharp pains in the sides of my neck like an ear infection or sore throats going to happen at anytime but never does. I thought it was something to do with my thyroid but been checked for that and everything's ok there. Its so weird how hormones can make all these things happen !

    Yes, and then it goes away. I did have an ultrasound done and doc found a growth on my thyroid. Becasue of the size of the growth they tested it for cancer cells but they found none. Reading about this I foudn out that 50% of people over 50 years old have these groths on the thyroid but only 3% are cancerous. 

    I have also this year had the worst case of sinus issues, not sure if it is related. Twice now I have hd to take antibiotics to clear up an infection above my teeth which has been crazy weird.

    Also, I ahve had to watch the type of shampoo and conditioner I use now. A few years back when I was going thru all the urinary tract infections, yeast infections and canker sore issues my scalp started burning and went to doc who said this was an allergic reaction to something I ws using on my hair. Ever since I have had to use non-fragrance hair spray and a cetain shampoo and conditioner. Again, only a probelm since all these other things started happening. To me it is a mystery and I am not sure if it is connected to hormones or not.

      Yes all of these symptoms you'd never associate with menopause which is why so many of us panic when we start feeling these things. We think we're all dying of some terrible disease.

      I used to come down with fku-like or cold-like symptoms a lot before I would get a period. But it's been years since I felt this way so it felt strange. Some of these symptoms I've had before but they are more intense now and some are new. But they are all still very bothersome.

      I live in Louisville, KY the worst place for allergies. It really is. They did this study about the worst place to live for allergies and Louisville, KY was ranked #1. Louisville is located in the Ohio River Valley so when the seasons change or when storms come it just stirs all of the elements around and the stuff just settles back down. It never gets carried away. So there are a lot of allergy sufferers here.

      I too suffer with tummy trouble from time to time. I get indigestion, usually when i wake up I feel like my food is sitting in my throat or chest. For example, when my period ended this past week, toward the end I had indigestion and constipation. Last night I started feeling the sore throat thing and then I felt sore all over like I was coming down with something. Then today, I felt heaviness in my waist and legs with pain in my upper thigh and groin area. I am so sick of these symptoms!

      I Also have the sinus allergy a lot . All seasons . Never had this before until perimenopause .... so strange . And I'm have stomach upset right now as well . I wonder if it's drainage too. But the health anxiety kicks in and I worry and become scared . But I just went to my doctor in October blood work was all good except hormones and vit d . And had annual exam then too . Everything was normal . So I try to look at it like see you are fine .

    Hi sharcerv.  I see you on the forum occasionally, so I am hoping you will get this.  I am wondering if you still have the sore throats.  Mine has been bothering me a lot lately.  Also pain in my ears, drainage in my throat.  Like you describe, it feels like I am starting to get a cold, but this has been going on for weeks now.  Just wondering if this is related to all this peri stuff?!!

      Hi columba. It is better, but yes a lot. Cold stuff makes it feel better. I am going to make an appt with an ent this week. Hopefully it will be allergies or changes from just getting older. Have you been to the doctor about it?

      Hi I am just joining this forum, just turned 52 in March and my period stopped right away, but now I have this sore throat which is fine when I wake, but stays with me throughout the day. I was reading up on menopause and found many instances where women experience sort throat as a symptom of menopause. Hopefully it will go away.
