Think I'm perimenopausal

Posted , 10 users are following.

past few weeks have been a nightmare bleeding on and off. Anxiety through the roof and now no sleep. Been to the doc but he's not convinced. Have hot flushes and low mood. Trawling through pages of recommended herbal remedies but don't know what one to try . Any help would be appreciated .

    Hi. I use super strength sage, stopped the night sweats within two week. Vit D3 for low mood. Passionflower for mild stress and anxiety, also aids sleep. I take other stuff too but that's a good place to start. Hope you find something to help soon.

    Aww... cry Sorry you are not feeling and sleeping well. I have been perimenopausal for years and insomnia was the first symptom. Unfortunately, I have yet to find something that helps me sleep naturally. I have tried Calm (you can get it at a health food store) or Magnesium or Melotonin. I tried boiling green leaf lettuce to make a tea ( I found it helped sometimes). Maybe it will help you. Just started missing periods at age 51 and still going through stage of having periods on and off. What type of Doctor did you see? From what I have read in this forum, it seems many doctors are unfamiliar with the various stages of menopause and discredit our symptoms. I will be seeing a new Gyno next week and hopefully she will be educated and helpful. I would find another doctor. Have you had blood work done? I have read about saliva testing. I am going to look into that. Maybe you should too. Hope you feel better and get some answers

    I'm in peri meno and blood tests must be done on 3rd to 5th day of period for a accurate reading...that's what my lady gynae said. ..... she gave me evening primrose oil capsules which have vit B, vit E, zink and magnesium in them....I can't put name on here it blocks me....and also calcium with K2, vitD tablet.....It seems to help.... otherwise I just take 1 day at a time and remind myself everything is hormones fluctuations causing chaos in my body..... nothing else.... Anxiety can be hectic just comes out of nowhere.....strong

    Sympathise with you. Having been through peri for a few years now and reading lots of entries on this forum, I think you just have to try lots of things to find what suits you as an individual.  We're all different. So vitamins, minerals, essential oils, Bach remedies, yoga, meditation, different foods - we all find our own unique combination. Remember though, you're not alone - we're all going through similar experiences.  Oh, and trade your doctor in for a new one if he's not in tune with you. Some are clueless. xxx
