    I woke up to both my hands swollen the other night. Don't worry it's a symptom of peri and menopause.

    When I worked, I spent the majority of my day standing/moving around. I would always have swollen ankles at the end of the day, worse around my period. Since I have been out of work, no swelling.

    Ankles most days...especially if the weather is humid out. Although when i walk for exercise it keeps it at bay. Crazy thing is since i teach 5th grade, i walk all day but they puff up as day goes on. If i take a walk after school, they go down.🤷🏾‍♀️

    Oh my God!! Brittany Along with the prolonged periods I am currently having (going on 4 weeks) I have also had swollen ankles on and off. I have just put it down to the humidity and sitting most of the day at my desk at work, I wonder if it is part of perimenopause as well. Did read somewhere that you can have fluid retention so it makes sense.
