DO YOU HAVE THESE SYMPTOMS?

Postby minniepauz » Tue Jun 07, 2005 10:17 am

Having any or all of these symptoms just means that it's very possible that you are entering into the peri-menopause process or actual menopause (if you haven't had a period for 12 mo).

I'm 48 yo, haven't had a period in a year (only had about 3 a year for two years before that). I have all kinds of wierd symptoms-palpitations, extreme hot flashes, wieght gain-but until I read this site I did not know that the "whooshing" sound I was hearing could be related to this. I thought I was having an aneurism!
I can't believe it took me this long to realize that menopause is my problem! I'm a busy teacher and I guess I just haven't been paying attention!

Welcome MizB and I'm glad we could relieve some of your concerns and fears! Just keep reading and asking questions and pretty soon you'll be "in the groove" and will understand what your body is putting you through!! :) Bless your heart for being a teacher too! I did a cartoon about what I thought I would do if I was a teacher going through meno:

I'm so glad I found this site. I've been so very concerned about symptoms on this list that I've had for the past few years. My periods finally stopped about a year ago. I've talked to so many doctors about these symptoms but no help and no interest. I've got the hot flashes coupled with occasional cold flashes (no one told me about those), rapid heart beat from time to time with a feeling like I can't quite get enough air), trouble sleeping through the night, awful weight gain, tired all the time, can't concentrate, no memory anymore, cognitive problems, awful itchy skin, terrible and very embarrassing gas, an almost constant feeling of mild dizziness or a floaty feeling with occasional balance problems, tingly hands and feet, tinnitus...need I go on? I'm frustrated, uncomfortable and sometimes a little afraid of all this. What do I do? How can I get a doctor to take this all seriously and help me?

:( I am so scared. Got first hot fush 2 weeks ago! Hurt all over, cry at the drop of a hat and am very very dizzy with spells where I almost pass out. Frightened to drive. Anyone else get this?

Hi Maggiemay,

Don't be scared. My very first symptoms, which still continue from time to time, were dizziness and extreme anxiety. I must admit I have never had a hot flash, but then we all go through this differently. I have always been somewhat nervous, but never to the point of these extreme feelings of anxiety I experience. The dizziness really threw me for a loop. I guess it all ties in with rising-falling-fluctuating-diminishing hormones.

Read all you can and visit here often. The ladies here have so much to offer. Advice as well as comfort.

I still contend that if Eve had never gone near that apple, we wouldn't be going through all of this. :D Have a good day.

I get dizzy too. I don't have the scary, anxious hot flashes much (three times that I can actually count), but I have the "regular" ones all the time. My dizziness comes with my hormone changes- it is usually a tip-off to me that my period will start soon. I'm stuck in peri-hell. I get all the menopause hormonal BS plus the PMS hormonal BS. ;)

Oh, and welcome to the board, maggiemay- nice name, one of my fave Rod Stewart songs. :D

This is my first post. I can' tell you how much better I feel just by reading all of the messages from ladies going through the same thing I am. I have been dizzy and my body justs keeps guivering (sp?) when I lay down - almost like an electrical current running through my body. The itchy crawly skin, tingling and light headedness is about to make me crazy. I went to my doctor and he told me to see a neurologist. That has me frightened. I have an anxiety disorder already. My gynocologist just drew blood and told me I was in menopuse - DUH!!!
Signed, Stardust :cry:

Welcome, stardust....glad you joined our "dizzy" group! :) Don't even worry about going to a neurologist....many women have gone that route and if it clears any possible concerns, then that's good. The doctors (especially men) are without a clue when it comes to anything other than hot flashes, so they send you off to specialists.

Just keep reading and you will see that you have the common symptoms of menopause, right down to the tingling and the electric shock feeling. :)

Try to keep a positive attitude! You're coming into a very FREEING part of your life! Sure, there's some adjustments and some discomfort, but that will pass and you will feel confident and have a sense of well being as you become the woman you are!

Hello Dee (Rebel with the Pause) - I love that!
Thank you so much for your caring response. I feel so much better now. I did go to the neurologist. He put me through a few little tests, (walk heel to toe, check my blood pressure standing, sitting, and lying down) among other things. He said he thought I was perfectly alright, but that he wasn't God, and recommended a MRI just to put my mind at ease. I really don't even want to do that. My symptoms are not bothering me as much since I have talked with you and read all of the other posts. Maybe I need to change to a female gynocologist. This is going to be a wild ride I can tell.
Thank you, again, for your support.
:) Stardust

I don't think the gender of a gynocologist matters, I get more support and wisdom and laughter from my wonderful male gyno than any woman Doc I have ever been too. The woman Doc I was going to when I first started peri 6 years ago, my first symptoms were turning as red as a fire engine and sweating buckets, she said she didn't think I was starting peri. :roll:
