: You may want to have your thyroid checked. It sometimes needs help when we're going through this menopause thing. All the hormones go wonky. Some of your symptoms sound like thyroid too. To find out more information go to Mary Shoman's site on about.com. Lots of info there on thyroid and menopause. Good luck.

i am 49 and taking premphase for about 1 year
I too have all these symptoms, no more hot flashs but i find my emotions are on a roller coaster, I am hot tempered when i used to be quiet spoken, my husband gets the brunt of my rages and i try to just walk into another room with my kids who are not very old and sit it out until i calm down, I have a complusive cleaning habit and I just cant stand anything messed up anymore, I feel like crying then laughing its unreal, don t know what to do. just praying for courage to get through this
