Perimenopause, sleepless nights, ouch!!!
I have several symptoms which i am sure are due to perimenopause but my worst one is the all night tossing and turning. I am soooooo tired. Most of the time i fall asleep the problem is i don't stay alseep. I also have heart palpitations, (not constant) tingling of the fingers, (this is new and has only happenned on two occasions) gas, gas, and more gas, constant burping (especially at night) already on prevacid for acid reflux (this started five years ago) night time itch, and calf muscle cramps during sleep ( has occured about four times in the last three months) and very recently constant sore nipples.
I still have a regular menstrual cycle, the only change is that i have less of a flow. I never had any bothersome pre menstrual symptoms except for maybe a litttle bit of an achy back but most of the time i don't feel it coming. The only problem i always had was a very heavy flow and always had lots of clots which led to being iron deficient. So for the ladies on this board that have already gone through the perimenopause what am i in store for when i hit menopause? are things about to get worse. I honestly cannot complain as all these symptoms are tolerable, except for the sleep deprivation.
