I'm40 in June and been having irregular periods for about a year and a half. It started with an odd day out here and there to a weeek late or a week early sometimes.
I have aslo been getting spells of feeling washed out.. my 'popped balloon' feeling as I call it, this can also be accompanied by 'foggy head syndrome'. There seems to be no pattern to it and as soon as it goes I feel good again.
I have got used to these feelings coming and going but the one that really bothers me is when I feel physically ill. Like I'm coming down with a bug. I get lethargic, feel feverish and off colour. This usually lasts a couple of days usually before my period but not always. I did notice at one point I was having this feeling every three weeks or so and it was becoming a bit of a joke amongst my friends that I was always feeling ill. I was beginning to think that I had a problem with my immune system because it feels so similar to getting the cold/flu.
Anyone else out there getting these symptoms??. I feel like I'm going nuts and most women when you mention perimenopause.. think I'm too young. I can't imagine what ese it could be.
