Burning skin, have to pee all the time - is this normal?

I'm new to this forum - 47, haven't had a period since December. I feel like I'm going crazy! I'm anxious, cry at the drop of a hat, feel like I have to pee all of the time, wake up sweating like crazy, and have these awful, burning / tingling sensations in my shins and legs.
Does anyone else feel like this? I'm so worried that something horrible is wrong with me.

You're going thru menopause. I'd see my gyno for assistance in dealing with the symptoms.

Definitely Menopausal symptoms,
See your Dr for treatment and try (Oil of evening primrose) something I found very helpful,

Thanks for your reply. I talked to my gyn and she didn't really offer any ideas except to say that I have overactive bladder and she wasn't sure about everything else. Maybe I need to see someone else... She was a great Dr when I was pregnant, but it seems like she's not as interested in these issues.

Re: Burning skin, have to pee all the time - is this normal?

Some of your symptoms sound menopausal, but having to pee all the time and the burning/tingling do not. Have you been checked for diabetes and a urinary tract infection? If it is overactive bladder, there are meds that can relax the bladder muscles. I would also check out the possibility of a peripheral neuropathy with your Dr., as that may be treatable as well. The other symptoms of diabetes include increased thirst, increased hunger, fatique, sometimes weight loss.
