I'm from the thyroid boards too
I'm 44 and for the past few years have had bouts of anxiety, heart palps, extremely heavy period flows, etc. I pretty much attributed it all to thyroid but now I'm suspicious I have/had perimenopause issues also.
I explained to my Dr. my periods have always been very regular and I'm never late but about 8 months ago they became a lot shorter. I'd have one heavier flow day and then it would seem to be over, so it was like 3 day periods. Then about 4-5 months ago my period started earlier than usual and still very light flow. Now the past 3 months I've had no period at all.
The first time I missed a period I was getting night sweats and hot flashes but those have died down since. I've still had mild heart palps but nothing as bad as a year or two ago. The Dr. had me do a FSH and a LH test. The FSH came back at 24.9 and the LH came back at 46.2
Those results along with my symptoms seem to tell me I am indeed in perimenopause but I also had read that a substantially higher LH over FSH could also indicate PCOS. Is that a concern do you think? I'm not able to see my Dr. again for a month to ask.
Thanks for any thoughts
