    Poor you, I totally empathise. I too am sick of all the niggles, some big, some just an irritation. Dread social gatherings, put on so much weight, thyroid problems, feel like Ive aged 20 years. It is the worst time of life. Bad enough getting old, but hideous to compound it with our bodies spiralling out of control. Im now in menopause, and a lot of the symptoms have subsided, but there is not a day goes by when I dont have something that causes me pain, discomfort or gets me feeling low. I had asked my doc about HRT, and she said she knows someone needs it when they feel they have had enough. Please go back to your gp and say how awful you feel. Sometimes you just need to pop these pills. Most of all, know you are not alone. Hey, having a flush now. I have a kingsize bed arriving tomorrow, so I can get a better sleep! Xx

    Hi Susan,

    Im with you on the tired probs, nose bleeds Id be worried is this normal? In the passed Ive heard of it in kids cant remember what the cause was might have been overheating not sure. I too have had been experiencing too many p.meno symptoms, bad memory being one of them. Every now & then I do have a window of what I think Iife use to be like only to be struck down with sudden sadness, tum cramps , over eating. It doesnt help to say your not alone but its reassuring that there are alot of us understanding (cos we are feeling/experiencing similar changes)women who are where you are now or have been through it. 

    I just had to reply because I totally sympothise, now Im going to my todays misery out there.

    I certainly found it ,if only a weeny bit helpful on some days that someone in this world has read of my plight & taken the time to acknowledge.

    hi Susan. I'm sorry you're having such a rough time. I haven't been diagnosed with perimenopause but I'm sure I'm going through it. It started with night sweats and sleep problems over 12 months ago. Sometimes I get so tired I just want to cry and I'd give anything to sleep through. Have you tried anything that helps? I've removed all my clocks from the bedroom so I don't wake and check the time every time I wake as that just makes me worse.

    Susan, I'm so sorry this is so uncomfortable.  Please remember that menopause is the complete and permanent loss of our sex steroids, estogen, progesterone and testosterone.  It isn't anything that you "get over".  It is a new and different life.  (Usually not one we like or feel comfortable with.) The loss of this endocrine system, effects and changes all the others. There are receptors in every part of our bodies, from our heads to our toes.  

    It does make sense to talk to your doctor.  If some HRT might help you feel better and more normal, it's certainly worth a try.

      I don't understand your choice - progesterone is the most problematic and is an estrogen antagonist.  However, if you are still perimenopause, perhaps progesterone is your lowest hormone level.

      I have seen claims that progesterone does all that oestrogen does, but that is not its job.

      While I take a small amount of provera with my oestrogen mainly to prevent activation of endometriosis, I am considering not taking it anymore because of its anti oestrogen qualities.  After 25 years, I am hoping my endometriosis has dried up by now.  Besides, my endocrinologist made a frowning face about my use of provera.

      My gp, accidently, I found out later, doubled my dose of provera and while I tried it, quickly went back to my normal dose because I got the anti oestrogen 'messages'.  My endocrinologist said it was good that I did that.

      I am going to try pregnenolone to enhance my oestrogen instead with the unofficial blessing of my endocrinologist.

      What is oestrogen is that the estrogen in your body. When your progesterone is low and estrogen level is low can your body feel cold it seems like i am cold lately with nose bleeds, not sleeping to well and just a lot of stomach issues

      Oestrogen is the most important hormone for us females.  When your ovaries stop working, no more oestrogen - this causes all the menopause issues.  Ask for oestradiol patches or daily gel, if you are at that point.  (Oestradiol is bio-identical and I would not use anything else.) Without re reading all your posts, I don't know if you have had hormone blood tests - which can be tricky anyway because it depends on time of month if you are still perimenopause.

      Feeling too hot and sometimes feeling too cold (usually related to thyroid though) are symptoms.  I have haemochromatosis too.  The symptoms of this is very similar to menopause.  It reduces your oestrogen levels as well, and can cause early menopause.  I blame my 'icing' that I sometimes feel, on the haemochromatosis.  It can feel like a blizzard is blowing through my body and icing me up.  With haemochromatosis, iron gets into the hypothalamus which among other things, regulates your temperature.

      Nose bleeds, not sleeping well and stomach issues are all symptoms of haemochromatosis too!!!!

      When I use the term, having an 'ice' attack is not good to say these days, given the drug 'ice'.  People might get confused :-)
