Unhappy Could this be the menopause??

I'm new to this board but have posted on other boards. I'm 38 and have had heavy periods since the age of 11 - have tried loads of different treatments and have various procedures at the hospital.
Over the last few months I have developed major hot flushes during the month and during my period, my periods have changed from very heavy to very light but still with pain, I have itching/burning just before and during period, have a sore and burning mouth, am sweating more, have headaches, aching legs and am more irritable than usual plus lots of other annoying things.
Has anyone any ideas???

Re: Could this be the menopause??

Since you are still getting your period, you'd be considered peri-menopausal. You reach menopause when you've been period free for a year or more.

Your symptoms definitely sound like they're all related to peri. Have you had things like your thyroid ruled out?

Welcome to this board!!!!!!!! Although your symptoms could be related to perimenopause it's best to first see your doctor and rule out other possibilities. You've come to a good place for a wealth of information.
