When exactly are you peri and menopausal

I haven't had my period now for approximately 10 months. All of a sudden I am feeling very badly. I feel so mentally and physiclly exhausted. Even people at work are telling me I haven't been the same for about 2 weeks. So now since they told me that I'm afraid I'm loosing my mind.

Just this past Sunday, I coughed and not really a hard cough and I pulled something in my lower back goind down my butt to my legs and its the worst pain I've almost ever experienced. Now I'm convinced I have a tumor somewhere and that I am dying. I just feel nothing, just worn out. I don't know if I'm weak or tired. I'm so afraid! My lower abdomin feels so puffy like you get with your period.

This happened last year that I didn't have my period for a whole year and then it came again right after I had my sonogram. When I had that done they said I had a little cyst but it was nothing. Now I'm afraid that it something. My yearly isn't for another 2 months.

I need some reassurance. I feel doomed!

Re: When exactly are you peri and menopausal

If you haven't had a period in a year you are considered in menopause. The time leading up to that is peri. That is when you get all the lovely symptoms which of course can continue for awhile after you are menopausal. It has been 10 months since I have had a period and I hope it continues. I have been in peri for 8 years and it is a pain. The sneezing could have pulled a muscle or a ligament that holds the uterus. It isn't necessarily a major health issue. Godbless
