Question What are your top 3 worst symptoms?

Hi

I was wondering what you would consider your top 3 worst symptoms?

For me it's,

1. Fatigue
2. Bloating
3. Restless sleeping

Oh the list goes on, but those are my top 3 worst so far.

Hugs

The top of my list are:
1.) Fatigue
2.) Bloating
3.) Hot Flashes off and on, or 2 days before my period I will just sweat straight until I start.
Also the weight thing is terrible.

1. Anxiety
2. Emotional Roller Coaster (mood swings / depression)
3. Fatigue

Re: What are your top 3 worst symptoms?

HI , it has varied over the past few years but I think always on top has been :

Anxiety.

Now it is that, bloating and sometimes stomach issues but luckily that does not happen much any longer.

You said you get hives??? Wow, that has to be miserable. That is the first time I've heard of someone getting hives.

Thanks to you, and the rest of you who've answered this post. It's interesting to compare symptoms.

Have a great evening, fellow sufferers....lol

Re: What are your top 3 worst symptoms?

#1 Anxiety. Anxiety has to be, hands down, my worst peri symptom. I never know what to expect with this one.

#2 Palpitations. I know these are harmless, but boy oh boy, they can really get me going some times.

#3 Insomnia. I used to be a great sleeper. I have no trouble falling asleep, but I just can't seem to stay asleep. I wake up all night long. Yesterday, I woke at 3:15 a.m. and never went back to sleep. Today, I was fortunate enough to sleep in until 4:30 a.m. This is driving me crazy.

Hot Flashes - I hate them because they seem to bring on other things.
Night sweats
Bloating

nausea

lack of energy

Re: What are your top 3 worst symptoms?

So hard to give just three but here goes:

Anxiety-The feeling of dread-teary feeling

Cramping-

Hot Flashes-

But if you ask my husband his number one and two would be loss of desire and grouciness... I'd have to agree with him.

3? This is HARD!!!
1. ANXIETY/moodiness
2. Weight gain that won't budge
3. Most aggravating...sleep disturbances of all kinds!!

Re: Mandarra

Hi Slimseeker, yup hives. I am assuming it's menopause as it all started two weeks after my 48th birthday. I've had mild allergies all my life, but now it's gone crazy. I have heard of hives during hormonal fluctuations, during pregnancy and stuff, they are miserable. The awful thing is they don't let up, I take an antihistamine every day which controls them nicely, but if I miss even one, they erupt like crazy! I would love to talk to some other menopausal women who have hives, anyone out there?

Re: What are your top 3 worst symptoms?

Top 3:
Acne
Weight Gain
Palpitations
And, yes hives too. I take a Benadryl and Singulair everyday. I can go weeks without any, then boom, I will have them off and on for weeks again. Can't figure out any foods, soaps, laundry detergent causing them. Must be hormones. The top three are tough because I can have 3 bad symptoms on one day then 3 different ones driving me crazy the next. Ann
