    Hi Maria,

    This was one of the first things i notice when i found out i was going through the peri menopause. I was suffering with really bad insomnia and anxiety at that time. Are you drinking enough as you might be dehydrated? 

    How have you been feeling?

    Best wishes :-)

    Hi Maria, 

    Sorry to hear your not feeling good!

    Are you going through the peri at the moment? I too lost weight, i feel that was my anxiety caused that.

    No white tongue now, i had swabs done and all came back clear, that is when i knew i was going through something my FSH level confirmed that. 

    I am okay i have the odd good and back days of insomnia, anxiety and get scared of the most stupid things.

    Go to your doctors and ask for a swab to rule out thrush.

    Good luck

      I had this dry mouth at the beginning of peri and my dentist sent me to dentistry and they couldn't find anything wrong the did loads bloods and said they think it's Anixety causing it..but will again ask my dr for mouth swab as you said..I got health Anixety too thinking something seriously wrong with me all my bloods are ok so far the white cells she said are ok just bit high so she did them again to rule out infections in the body just hoping it's fine too, I'm ending peri menopause this month come Feburary begins Post menopause.for me at last but the crap I guess Carrys on.

      Hi Maria.  Thanks for replying.  I am  in the crazy part of Peri,  bogged down with symptoms.  I have an occasional decent day, but I’m usually stressing about one symptom or another.  I am being treated for oral thrush right now.  She wasn’t positive but she gave me some mouthwash that should take care of it if it is.  It is mostly just a white coating, but I have these weird white patches too.  It happened about 6 months ago too. The dentist biopsied it and it came back as nothing.  Talk about anxiety!!  That was awful😩.   So I am hoping this mouthwash will get rid of it.  Well when I get rid of this, it will be something else.  Lol.

      I’m glad you are doing better.  Thanks for asking how I was.  Please stay in touch
