Hi ladies. I have been going through Perimenopause for nearly 3 years now and the symptoms seem to be getting worse. I haven't had a good nights sleep since I started. Lately, I only manage to get 2-4hours sleep every night and I wake up every half hour or hour. My muscles and joints ache and I have stiffness in my fingers which is very painful. Recently, the leg twitches or fast jolts have also been disturbing my sleep. I seem to be experiencing a throbbing sensation in my arms, legs, back or shoulders. The best way to describe this sensation is that it feels like a heart beating in my limbs or back. Is anyone else experiencing this throbbing sensation? I'm using magnesium but I haven't noticed any change. My dr won't prescribe sleep meds and seems to think that my symptoms are anxiety related but I remain unconvinced. I'm terrified that I have some auto-immune disease because of the twitching/jolts and weird throbbing in my limbs and upper body. Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you ladies.
