Week before period

YUCK!
Anyone else have a horrible time 1 week before their period? I seem to suffer with heart palpitations the worst one week before I start. AND over the weekend I had a blood pressure spike. I took it at home and it was 141/92. Five minutes later it was normal again. I have normal blood pressure and it's never spiked like that before. Is this ANOTHER lovely issue from perimenopause? I swear I have 63 out of the 64 symptoms!

Re: Week before period

My mother had the blood pressure spikes. The last... I think 3-4 years before she went fully into menopause, every time she had a period, her blood pressure would SPIKE. She said, "I think my body just doesn't like estrogen any more."

Now, seven years later, her blood pressure is well controlled with a low dose of medication.
