    Hi Kim. I am so sorry that you going through this. But you are not alone . My peri started with burning in my leg and then spreaded to my  back , abdomen and then all over the body . I was in emergency and they did all possible tests . Then I was visiting all kinds of doctors and did all kinds of tests . No one knew what was going on with me .  I am happy that I found this site and the discussion about 66 perimenopause symptoms. I have all of them . So what I do is lots of walking, eating healthy exercising. I was also diagnosed with hyperthyroidism. So for me everything doubles with this condition . Plsease hang in there it will pass too .

    Yes Kim, it can and does all of these things. And much more. Sorry you are experiencing it too. 

    Gema, I think you are the first person I heard talk about the burning in your leg. When all my symptoms hit I will notice my feet are burning. Originally it was my left foot, now both and sometimes my leg too.

    Hi . I cannot believe how exactly the same our symptoms are .so much so I could have written It!. I too have lost weight suddenly. The pain in my side's that moves and the burning sensation I get is frightening . This causes anxiety and then I'm a wreck all day 😐 . The shaking is horrendous. I am on HRT and still I feel like I'm dying . I'm personally sending you huge hugs .. x

    I live this site. Us ladies are going thru so much together. Until inbound this site I too thought I was going crazy. Kim like you I ended up in Emerg because he thought for sure i was having a heart attack. I also notice the tingling in my legs and fingers early this year

    Now I think the weight loss is setting in. I take b12 in liquid form daily and trying my best to have 1 coffee a day. But sometimes the worst are all the crazy thoughts going thru my head.

    Thank you ladies because I needed this support👍

      I first realize what was happening to me last year October.

      I could not sleep, started to feel tired all the time, no interest in sex. But the worst part was when I got this pain in my left breast and thought I was having a heart attack. I felt dizzy and nearly blacked out. My husband took me to the hospital twice and I was checked out with no issues . Went to visit my doctor the following day and that's when he simply told me I had all the symptoms of perimenapause. Her I was 47 and never gave it a thought.

      I don't look my age was the other issue, I can pass for early 30's.

      I found this website when I was up mate and could not sleep. All my symptoms was listed for me.

      I have friends and in-laws who are going thru it and it's comforting to know I'm not alone.

      I had to give up coffee, Spicey foods and anything with acid and sweets.

      I started eating healthy and I think thats why I lost weight.

      You have to monitor how you feel when you eat certain foods which could trigger your body.

      Hope this helps😊

      OMG. What's up with October?

      Season change? I live in🇨🇦 so the temp starts to fall.

      I got the burning on the shoulders, dizziness and the list goes on.

      This year my doctor said my iron is low so he prescribed iron pills.

      I still get my period every 28 days but heavier.

      But now I'm wondering if weight loss has to do with my period getting ready to stop🤔
