    Aww bless you I feel your pain.

    The ever moving aches and pains are so annoying mine goes from front to back, side to side, ribs, back, stomach, neck haha really frustrating. however I don't get leg pain for which I am thankful.

    And I also get the anxiety when something new appears it's like you automatically think the worst.

    I'm also so warm all the time which makes me feel smelly I'm going through perfume like it's free haha.

    It's like mother nature didn't think puberty and child birth was enough along with the years of monthly frustration and pain for periods.....no lets give her the whacking menopause too .Chin up and keep going hopefully it'll end eventually.

    Have you been diagnosed?? my doctor refuses to believe all my symptoms are connected which is more frustrating than the pains x

    I have the pain in my lower back,legs ,arms ,hands and knees and the anxieties are the worst! I've had to go on hydroxyzine to stop the anxieties.

    I feel your pain! Somedays I wake up and feel like I have been hit by a truck...I ache in all different places...but mostly upper body...arms shoulders ribs and chest. And sometimes out of the blue I get a sensation like I am offbalance...not really dizzy....just like my head tilts for a moment. And I HATE the spacy feeling.. .its like you see in the cartoons where they slap someone to wake them up. I feel like I need to shake myself to wake up. Sometimes...and this is bad...i drive from A to B and I don't even remember the drive...its like I am on autopilot...not with it. I am usually mentally sharp....but the brain fog is bad sometimes. I read this is yet another peri symptom.

      I feel exactly the same as you. I went six months without a period and got one two weeks ago. After the period I've felt worse (didn't think that could be possible )

      I'm fatigued this week to the point I keep feeling like I'm gonna drop or pass out.

      I feel severely nauseated. I can't get anything done.

      My anxiety has kicked in massively again and I've convinced myself I'm dying cause I feel so bad.

      Went docs weds cause I was tight chested and short of breath. All checks were fine and my period wasn't even heavy just spotted for a week.

      I'm at my wits end today did my morning calls I'm a carer and can't function for the rest of the day.

      What the heck. Feel like I'm losing the plot or got some undiagnosed illness.

      Been in peri for nine years.

      Anyone else relate.

      Is this fatigue and nausea normal x

      I think it is Michelle. I also have the achy chest thing...i keep thinking I must have heart disease or something bad because you just feel awful. I used to be so healthy...only got a headcold sometimes...now I feel like I am dying. How can you feel so bad when nothing shows up in tests. Well we must all have the same thing as we all have the same symptoms...i would just love to be able to project how I feel onto the doctors....and my husband....then they would know I am not imaging it!

      Yep me too my husband and kids are just about fed up with me.

      Hey I'm fed up with me.

      I'm actually considering going back on the AD mirtazapine I was on four months ago but I really don't want to but I'm not coping very well at all right now.

      Not to mention the tight chest along with the bloating x

      I have a script for Effexor. She said i don't have depression but they use it to help the mood swings and hot sweats. I have had some say don't take it and others say its good. Apparently the withdrawal symptoms are bad. I would only be on a low dose 37.5....i just get scared it will make me worse as side effects can be anxiety and agitation. When I feel ok I think I can handle it...but when i get bad I just want to take anything.
