new to site

I am on this site to find out more about perimenopause...I've been feeling down and sluggish lately. I have gained some weight and also feel anxious. I just had blood work drawn to check for anemia or thyroid issues. I'm 42 so am wondering if this could be perimenopause!

Re: new to site

hi welcome to the site! Its a great place w/ folks who have lots of knowledge and experience I think. That's a good idea getting your thyroid checked. I'd also get my Vit D levels checked as well.

I have hypothyroidism (low thyroid) so I know what you mean. I also take Vit D and calcium (I am post-meno and also take other meds to cause loss of calcium). You may want to start thinking about the calcium too maybe talk to your gyno about that.

Good luck and I hope you have good test results. Cathy
