Just turned 50, not feeling just right.....

OK, so the age thing may be a little of my concern, I find the older I get the more I blame things on the aging process. I still have fairly regular periods although heavier and with a shorter cycle but other things have massively changed. I have a very heavy feeling in my arms(with a tingling sensation) many days, have NO energy many days and just feel like an alien has taken over....almost. My head feels clouded and recently have had vertigo which makes me even more cloudy. Anyone take anything natural to combat these feelings??? I had recent bloodwork that said I am not going into menopause but I know it can happen quickly and I have so many changes going on, I know better. Thanks!!!

Your most likely in peri-menopause, as many of us on the board are. Unfortunatly, the blood tests for menopause don't usually show much until you are pretty well into it - such as missing quite a few months (almost a year) of periods.
I'm 48, and was tested last year, normal results, but I have been getting my cycle much closer together for about 18 months now. They were much heavier when this started - now they seem to be getting lighter, but still 21-24 days apart (with an occasional 19).
I get alot of the other symptoms that go along with this also. If you've been checked out by your Dr. and the change in cylce isn't because of any other problems, then I would say, it's probably the peri symptoms. If your feeling really bad, I know that some women get on meds, such as birth control or anti- anxiety. I'm not on anything at this time, but there are days when I feel I should be.
I'm actually going for my yearly exam tomorrow, so who knows.

Hope you feel better.
