I am 47, always been regular a clockwork. A few years ago I started to fluctuate, every other month I would be 3 weeks and the next I would be 4.
hen I started to get really heavy on 2/3 and it made me physucally sick, I had to stay in bed sometimes.
I have been getting palpitations a day or so before my period is due for about 3 or so years also. As well as this my stomach is very distended, I sometimes feel bloated but I suffer with Ulcerative Colitis and it is exassebated at the time of the month, often if I lie down on my back the bloated feeling is aleviated in wind. but my tummy is still big.
So a month ago I strted to do pelvic floor exercises and plank this time My period was a week late lasted about 11 days very mixed sometimes so light and others heavy and dark and clots. My left side close to my ovary is tender my boobs are swollen up and down and tender I have had 3 days no bleeding and just started lightly and red again.
I cant wear a coat or a jumper because I sweat and I have to have a fan on at night occassionally I have to open the door and stand outside and in the mornings taking my daughter to scool I am so hot I cannot wear a jacket ( and it is still early April and not ready for casting clothes here yet).
I dont feel good my hair is dry and greasy all at the same time I am fat and cnt seem to lose any weight despite dieting.
I have an ultrasound arranged for 20 April and had blood tests last Friday.
along with my smear test and swab taken.
Last year I had a frozen shoulder for 12 months and have had a glorious 8 or so with full movement, now the other side is freezing up!
My teeth feel ultra sensative all of a sudden.
I am worried I have something sinister going on. If I new it was menopause I wouldnt moan just pray it was over quickly, but I dont now.
Can anyone help me, advise me, pacify me or just something me please?
