Am I going crazy or just headed for menopause??

I am new here and I am so glad to have found all of you. I am almost 42 years old. I have been taking Provera for 3 years now to combat heavy periods and to regulate them. I have not been told by my doctor that my hormone levels have changed, but I am experiencing hot flashes :oops: and itching that is so severe, I feel like I am going crazy! Is severe itching of the area around the vagina a normal occurance? Does anyone have a suggestion for relief? :?

I do not know what a full nights sleep is any longer. Anything over 2 hours at a time would be great!

I would love to here from anyone that can give me suggestions to relieve a little or a lot of these issues.

Thank you and have a good day!

have you tried the OTC stuff for feminine itching? But first have you been checked for a yeast infection? (those are miserable!) Be sure to take the list of 35 symptoms to your Dr. and call the scheduler to let them know you want to be able to talk about hormonal concerns with your Dr. that way they can allot time (mine actually took 45 min with me!!!). Check out the rest of the posts and the site!! some great info! Keep us informed on how things go
