I feel your pain! The stories I read years ago hoping weren't true about menopause are true! Do you have these all the time or is it cyclic? My symptoms seem sort of cyclic.
You'll have to let me know how that goes. I'm not big on taking anything so have stayed away from those types of products. My best friend is my fan at night. couldn't live without it. And I try to build in some extra sleep time. Are you having any mood swings?
Ya, I have my good me and my bad me, you never know what you are going to get since menopause hit and I've resorted to sweat pants more than I like. But they ARE comfy. (I now know why older women like those elastic waist band, polyester pants, ha ha). It's rough. One day at a time. AND, why do I have more pimples now than I did when I was a teenager?
Our bodies go through a lot of changes during this time. One thing that also happens is an increase in mental health things like anxiety, My anxiety can go through the roof. I would think all of the things you mention are meno related--- you can always have a physical to make sure. And once you check out healthy, then you know it is anxiety that makes you worry that these symptoms are more serious than the pains of menopause. :>)
Yes, the ER is not a good place to go for menopause. lol. My general practitioner is really helpful as she is a woman and gets everything I'm going through. I give her my wide range of symptoms and she says normal or not normal. So far, everything I have is normal. I like her better than my ob/gyn but that's a good person to talk to as well.
I've always gotten headaches with hormone fluctuation. I got headaches with half my periods. So, it's a pretty common hormonal symptom.
Yes, anxiety can make you worry about our heath a lot too and menopause can make us anxious. It's all a vicious interrelated cycle. good times.
