    Yes, sounds like it. Go see your gynecologist to get something for the lack of sex if this is your concern.

    If you have no other symptoms ie, hot flashes/sweats, fatigue, I would go and get the pins and needles feeling checked out with a doctor. And mention the migraines, he may be able to give you something to help.

    Hi Virginia

    I have just turned 50 my periods stopped 3

    Years ago and I was told I was peri. The only thing I get is hot flashes and now seem to be getting

    More frequent at night time disturbing my sleep and cramp / niggle

    Like pains that change from overy to overy as if

    Periods is about to begin not sore but I know it is there. And I to have no desire for sex but if it happens it is good. Hehe. So I'm not sure what any of this is.

    Hi Virginia, when I got pins & needles feeling my doctor found I had an injury in my neck. Such that it comes from some type of arthritis. If you ever suffered a whiplash or some sort of injury on your neck or spine, the pins & needles is common for arthritis unless you have diabetes then I would get checked out immediately.
