I am 53 now and I have had every one of the peri symptoms in the last couple of years. From the anxiety, which is the worst for me, to heart palpitations, heartburn, headaches, crazy periods, and a general lack of interest in anything. Some days, I just want to make it through the day. I can feel completely normal one day, and them Wham! The next day I am a total mess. I came upon this forum a while back when I was looking for symptoms of perimenopause. My husband and I read them together, and he was like Wow! That is a list of the symptoms you are having. Honestly, I thought I was dying, going insane, or had some real bad disease. When I have a particular symptom, like right now with my periods being so crazy. I am just spotting, but this is the 2nd time this month I have done that. I get on here and see women with the same thing going on and it really helps me cope. It's also a good thing that I have a very understanding husband. I wouldn't know what to do without him, or this forum. Thank you ladies for helping me to see that maybe there is a light at the end of this long tunnel.
