Re: I wish i knew
Hey 92261, that was good advice. I got my basic saliva test done and I am perimenopausal (just turned 40 but feeling like this for a few years). I have lots of bad symptoms but now I just got a few new ones. I think I will go get my thyroid checked with my blood sugar too. Besides the typical, hot flashes, night sweats, moody, tired, can't remember a thing, never want to have sex, super dry skin, etc, etc,.....I have started getting peach fuzz on most of my face with dark hairs around my lip, my hair on my head is falling out by the handfulls, I would say about a third of my hair is gone now, I can't blink very well because my eyes are always so dry, my hand feels like is going to cramp every couple of days, the backs of knees hurt or ache like they are tired or something, and I had no wrinkles not even one as of 6 months ago and now it's gone crazy, I have so many wrinkles all of a sudden. I am scared especially because I am so young and none of my friends are going through this so no one understands what I am saying to them. My OB did my test 4 mos ago and put my on progesterone for 3 mos but since it didn't work she told me to go see an endocrinologist now, so I am now searching for one. In the meantime, all I do is search the internet for info, ignore my 3 kids and husband because I can't stop thinking about this all day and night. I feel like I need to try and help myself with information and doing what I an myself also. . Good luck all of you, I know everyone feels the same way no matter what symptoms you have and how long you have had it.
