Im on fire!!!!!
Hi, my doc told me last yr that i was having an early menopause but did no tests? As my mum had hers aged 36, i am now 42 so she said this is my early menopause. I have suffered for years with terribly heavy long periods and last yr i suddenly only had 2, ( fantastic) this year hardly had any until last 3 months and i suddenly had many periods every 2 weeks and very heavy?
Well the one thing that is making me so very very ill is this burning sensation inside my body, i cannot function as i feel i have a raging tempurature, i cant sleep and i cant work as i can feel myself about to pass out. I cant even hold a proper conversation as i know i will faint, i get so hot its painfull. I am hot on the inside though, but not on the outside i feel cool to touch. Everyone tells me that when you get hot flushes you drip with sweat, well i dont i just start to actually boil up inside
Is this hot flushes and what on earth can i do, i cannot carry on like this, i lie awake at night with a fan on and no bed clothes. My dr said she did not want to give me HRT ( which i know nothing about at all). she said as i have a strong family history of cancers she felt it better if i could avoid hrt, but she gave me some anti depressant for my anxiousness that i get every month when my period would normally be due, i did make it perfectly clear to her i do not feel or get depressed though. Does anyone know what will stop these horrible hot feelings, i cant stand it any more.
i do have other symptoms but dont know if they are menopausal or not.
