Hello to all. I am 37, almost 38, and ever since I turned 37 I started having night sweats and almost always the week before and the week of my period, sometimes its so bad I have to change my shirts several times a night, OR it may be my legs only that sweat bad, ever heard of this? (with the legs?) I just went through a traumatic year with TMJ Syndrome and am doing better. I am on paxil cr to help me with pain and to deal with the TMJ. I was on xanax for awhile also to help with muscle relaxation, etc. I do remember when I was 35 have about 3 or 4 nightsweats a year, but now its every month. I also had a tubal litigation when I was about 30 after my second child. I went to doc and he said its sounds weird to him, he did blood work and all that, havent heard from him yet. He said could be my estrogen levels, etc. and that I could go on birth control which I do not want to do at all. This has been going on about a year and I also have gained weight, have anxiety, and my memory seems to be on vacation!!
Please help with any advice, does this sound like perimenopause?? Thanks so much!! Tina in Kentucky
