Unsettling symptoms of late....!!

Posted , 5 users are following.

Greetings to all. I am a 51 yo female somewhere in the midst of either the approach to or the actual "change"....periods have been heavier and somewhat irregular for about 2 years now, increasing irregularity past several months. My question is more on some (perhaps) unusual symptoms I have been having recently....

Upon awakening I have been intermittently experiencing a strange vertigo/tinnitus for a short period of time--it is hard to describe, almost like a pulsatile sensation in my head (but not regular, i.e. timed with my pulse) where my hearing and my perception are sort of muffled,,,,almost like my head is a radio trying to tune into a station--that sounds weird, but it's kind of hard to describe the sensation. This "pulse" happens intermittently every 5-10 seconds and appears to be self limiting when I am fully awake in 15 minutes or so. Not painful but unpleasant, makes me a bit nauseous. Been having a hard time referencing this as possibly attributable to hormones, unlike my other Fun Experiences such as eyes as dry and painful as a cracked bone, constipation, and zero libido. My other differential is that this weird symptom is autoimmune, there is a lot of these types of disorders in my family, it has occurred to me I may have Sjogrens as I also have peripheral positional numbness and some other symptoms that are c/w this. Just seeing if anyone else has experienced the strange "radio" symptoms, or if it's likely something else....thanks!

    yep! What you described is what I have experienced in the last few years...intermittently. Sometimes it hits out of nowhere during the day. i know other women who have this. We've all been checked out and it appears on the list of 66 menopausal symptoms.
