... Hi everyone. I'm a newbie and here is my first post. I hope I'm posting it in the right category. I'm 48 and I've had some on and off symptoms of perimenopause starting about 3 or 4 years ago. First sign was night sweats. I would wake up in the middle of the night so blasted hot I would strip down to just my panties. ... (3 replies)
... ore my period would start. Then it progressed to any day or time of the month as I approached the stage of severe perimenopausal symptoms.

... having are. They don't ease up at all through the day unless I am concentrating really hard on something, or literally running around. It's kind of like having chills that come with a fever, but no fever, and I feel COLD. Even with the weather nice, I am in a sweater. Sometimes my skin feels like it is almost crawling. ...

... I'm having a bad sinus infection right now..but I'm wondering if acid reflux is in play as well. Can't shake the cough. I do have chills. I also feel like I have a fever too. But I don't. I've taken my temp and sometimes it's really low 95.6 even. Then it goes up to normal. Or I will just get overall chills..feet really cold..hands and face. And this was even before I was...

... I did have my thyroid function checked earlier this year and it was fine. I googled on the internet (which I do too often) and there is some correlation of cold flashes in perimenopause. They say sometimes your body temperature goes up just enough (without you noticing) and the thermostat in your brain tries to regulate you. Just another one of the lovely symptoms of... (13 replies)
... I too have a whooshing sound in my ear. That's been going on for quite a few years. After turning 40.... Yesterday I had chills without hot flashes.

... I am also 43 and have just started having things happen. My doctor thinks peri may be apart of my troubles. For the past couple years my periods were very heavy and awful cramps. Now since about Sept they are much lighter & a bit longer (but still regular). Never had anxiety, chills, night sweats etc ever until this past September. Anxiety hitting me out of the blue any time... (7 replies)

... some of you mention your Dr. said you were in perimenopause. I have had a lot of symptoms that sound like anxiety (internal shaking, chills, tired, frequent bathroom, weak, adrenaline rush, weak and more)
I had my LH and FSH tested, and regular Dr. said they were normal.
What kind of tests and what levels should they be at to know if you are peri-menopausal?

... the embarassing part is i get these goosebumpy sensations especially on my face, tummy sides, arms and legs, and i wonder if others can see it too !!! Theyre not chills or actual goosebumps. More like being excited but without any reason! And they start off without warning. ... (5 replies)
... All the symptoms you are describing could be peri. I think you are smart to get checked out by your doctor, if anything, to rule out other issues and have peace of mind. Especially since you are on the young side. It will be interesting to see where your hormones are at.

... I think what you'll find here is that many women start menopause (perimenopause) quite earlier than they would have thought. I may take up to 10 years (or longer) to actually get to menopause. Fun, huh?

Sorry you didn't get responses right away and this is kinda late, but thought I'd drop a note.
I'm 47 and believe that I started having peri symptoms as early as age 38, but just didn't identify with it. I had severe cramping, more migranes around my period and worsening PMS. Within a couple of years, added insomnia, then a couple of more years, add an occasional... (6 replies)
... I've been living too with the panic attacks. Menopause is like a rollercoaster I guess, and we can't do anything but be on it and try to live the experience at our best.
I get palpitations, heart skips (my heart sinks, stays there, down below, very still, then it jumps back violently and starts racing like crazy) anxiety attacks, I sweat, and feel hot, then I get chills, my... (36 replies)
