| | confused and need advice
I am 42, have been seen yearly by my gyn. since 16. I have always trusted them, but lately am becoming unsure. I have been experiencing so many symptoms that I feel are signs of menopause, but they disagree. I feel as if I am on an emotional roller coaster, can't sleep at night, at one point at night I am a ball of sweat, then from sweating I then freeze about 20 min. later, my periods ar very erractic (have been since I was 39). I only have 6-7 a year, and they have dropped in legnth, and flow.
The doc. wanted to put me on Sarafem, but I am not one to take meds. easily. I have requested bllod test to see if my hormome levels have changed, and they refused saying it was TOTALLY unnecessary. Any advice? Is all this just perimenopause? Is this the beginning to all the fun, or what?
