Symptoms of Menopause or not?

Posted , 7 users are following.

I know there are a ton of syptoms of menopause but here are mine. 

Hot flashes,upset stomach,headaches,lack of sleep,fuzzy hair on the face, crying jags, and loss of desire for sex. The lack of desire is the one I am not really sure of.  Is it a syptom of menopause also?  I have a feeling it is but just wonder what syptoms others have. So anyone what syptoms do you have?

    Hi Rhonda

    the symptoms of menopause are endless, it bought my anxiety attacks back, palpitations, hot flushes, dry itchy skin, thining of hairs on my arms and face, cold to the point of shivering, urinating every 5 minutes, funny feelings like electro pulses through my body when I'm trying to sleep, insomnia some nights, irritable, now have terrible wind bloating and sometimes diarohea, dry mouth and bouts of terrible memory loss or brain wondering off, the list goes on and on. Wish there was an end to the symptoms and at this moment sometimes hate being me 😞 X

      Oh this is the first time I've seen anyone mentioning the electric pulse like feeling! I get it mostly just when I'm falling asleep and it's like I've been electrocuted & I jump up...not glad you've got it too but glad I'm not imagining it and it's yet another thing to add to my list x

      I feel most of those but not all.  I did have a problem at the docotrs office I thought I was having a stroke.  I could not get a word/sentence out of my mouth for the life of me.  I was really getting worried.  I got to the car and everything was fine.  Freaked me out though.

      Rhonda, I'm too now suffering from slight numbness sometimes slightly itchy too in my face just like a little patch and on my right arm too, seems it maybe calcium deficiency, I've just had blood test waiting to see. X

      Pam LOL. I don't have the beard but I have a lot of peach fuzz on my face.  I got through the anxiety thank goodness. But unforunately the hot flashes an upset stomach are pretty bad.  I can't take anything because I recently found out I have kidney disease so no help for me in the way of medication. sad

      Sorry you have all the rotten issues with menopause.  I have had all those but luckily it has settled some.  I still have the hot flashes (extremely bad) upset stomach, and lack of desire.  But luckily the crying jags have settles down.  I once broke down in the doctors office for no reason.  Funny now but embarrassing then. She just looked at me and said Yup full fledged menopause. Like I didn't know. LOL
