I have been in perimenopause for years and have all the symptoms (irregular heartbeat, vaginal burning before period and during ovulation, higher heart rate a few days before period, anxiety, migraines, hot flashes) etc. This last PMS I did not have my usual migraine, but the first day of my period I was feeling really off (tons of palpitations, and tired). I was sitting at my desk when the room started to spin so I quickly dropped to the rug so I didn't fall. It probably lasted a minute if that....
It is now the next day and I feel light-headed and a little dizzy. I know I need to increase my water for drinking everyday. My husband took my blood pressure as soon as he came in to the room and it was normal. My pulse was normal as well.
I guess this is a new symptom?
Does anyone else get dizzy or room spinning vertigo episodes on the first day of their period?
My periods have gotten very short (about two days in length) so I know I am slowly getting close to menopause. In addition, I have been dealing with these peri symptoms for about five years. (I am 48).
I ordered dramamine and read benedryl can help as well with dizziness.
Any other thoughts or tricks to feel better?
I just feel so alone with these symptoms as none of my girlfriends say they are having any.
